My guess on why they want it pointed at the ground, would be.I put mine up between the left mirror and the windshield. Do not understand them wanting it pointed at ground. Played with positions a long tome before deciding on that.
Thank you, everything I am read indicates they want it pointed up towards the sky. In either case, thanks for your input....I am going to check out that location.I put mine up between the left mirror and the windshield. Do not understand them wanting it pointed at ground.

I totally agree, that is why when riding in a group (2 or more motorcycles), you should turn it off for the reason you stated.The only thing I dont like about a modulator is riding in front of them. I was driving my wifes sports car and it sits rather low and I was on the interstate when a modulated wing got behind me. I finally just slowed down to make him pass because it drove me nuts having the flashing in my mirror.
Given that I ride with Ron, many times he is behind me and his 1500 modulator doesn't seem to bother me at all. However, an 1800 that sometimes rides with us also has a modulator that drives me nuts. I think it may have something to do with the brightness or headlight angle setting. JMHOI've ridden with guys that had modulator on their bikes and I don't see the problem. During day light hours the ambient light pretty well dissipated the high beam light, yes the high beam is on and yes it is modulated, and yes you can see it modulate in your mirror but it does not cause any bright flashing. Unless your staring at the mirror. I don't see the problem.
That just my opion
