Always highbeams. Intentionally aimed high to dazzle other motorists... I'm glad we have laws against such things around here. But I do, on occasion, encounter other similar minded motorcyclists who also believe dazzling oncoming traffic is a good and safe idea, regardless of the law, because they are special. I always salute them with my high beam (5 times brighter than theirs) and my landing lights (each 2 times brighter than their highbeams). I also indicate to them that they are number one in my books, with a middle finger salute, when we pass. Though they probably can't see that, due to 7 times the light directed their way.
If you want to be visible on a bike, you don't have to be a jerk. Just don't wear black, and give the bike a little wiggle when you think someone hasn't seen you.
