Its not as simple as modifying the wiring to have both bulbs on at the same time. First note that the bulbs for high beam and low beam are the same. The way the high beam bulb works is that it has a reflector in the headlight casing to direct the light vertically as compared to the low beam. If you modify the wiring to have both lights on at the same time - then nobody will ride in front of you again......
