<HTML>California has an "automatic headlights on" law for motorcycles since 1975. I owned a Puch,Peugeot, and Honda that operated this way. My current ride, a '79 Vespa Grande has a headlite switch which has to be turned on for the headlamp to light. I don't use it in the daytime and have never had problems with the law.
Ride responsibly and the cops won't give you a second look.</HTML>
