Who the frock knows...

I want to put a 2 inch strobe light in there and make it work with my horn!

Any thought on that??

That light is a daytime visibility light.
Mainly, this light is useful in countries that do not require the headlight to be on during the day. It is there to help you be seen. The reason its on the American bikes is due to the cost of having to make different plastics for each country.

Also...

I'm not positive but I believe that a couple of the European countries require a strobe in that small light. France rings a bell for some reason.

It is something about those kooky Europeans though.

You guys are all wrong! That light is the license plate light for those states that require a plate on the front.
