White light has red as a component. What I was thinking was if you took red and mixed it with the other colors or white you could get a 'superior' beam that would both illuminate the road and preserve night vision.

For example you could mount white lights low and mostly horizontal on the fork, and a red pointing down from the handle bars. The beams would be focused on the same point.

This is all speculation of course.
