Still a long way to go! Thanx! At the recent west coast Madness, 80% of the pre-04 bikes had a DD headlight. Lotsa bug-eyes!
Removing the reflector? Your friend probably meant "removing the cutoff shield", which blocks light above the horizon on the low beam. Helps a little, but probably dazzles oncoming cars (if one can be dazzled by a candle).
If by "euroswitch", you mean the left switch cluster for european bikes (that has an on-off switch), yes, that can be modified. Only one wire needs to be moved so low beam is powered all the time, rather than after the hi-lo switch. If you need a hand, ride on down to Portland and I'll do it for you.
