A small parking light in the headlight assembly. It's a T10 bulb that's barely bright enough to be seen 20 feet away. It's on all the time the headlight is on, and stays on if I turn the key to the P position (which also lights up the tail light). It burned out a couple years ago and I've never bothered to replace it.

Even the whole parking light idea is pretty worthless. Considering the amount of battery oomph it takes to start that boxer motor, leaving the parking light on for more than an hour is risking a no-start situation.

The first time I sounded the horn on my R1150RT I about jumped out of my skin. I was expecting a feeble meep meep, but instead got a blast that sounded a lot like the horns (yes, dual-tone!) on my '69 Chevy Impala. Although I rarely use it, when I do it commands attention.
