Bi-Xenon? or single beam oK?

I bought some HID kits for my headlights and fog lights about 100$ each, I was about to install them in my new harley headlights and I was curious if I need bi-xenon's or if I will be ok without a high beam on my truck? I would think it would be illegal not to have high-beams? What do you guys think? I know with HIDs there wont be much use for high beams esp since I'm so high in the air with my lift anyways, and have hid fogs.

I blind people as it is with stock lights because im lifted, i would say there would be no need for highs with a lifted truck especially with HID's.

I think I'm going to run a single beam kit on my harleys. I just hope i dont get busted in Cali for runnin them. Is there any adjustments I can make to tilt them down a little bit because of my 8" lift esp since I took a spacer out the back to make it a cali lift.

I opted for the single beam. I have no use for high beams at all with the HID's installed. I was going to get them for my fogs too, but they are so bright in the head lights I don't need it. Just took my fog lights off all together. Makes the bumper look much cleaner.

I got the hi/lo kit and never use the highs. Only time they get flipped on is when im behind a buddy. or when someone bright lights me.

Bi's are needed if you want to occaisionally flash oncoming traffic running their brights or to get slow guys out of the fast line.
