Had not tried 4 way flasher on the bike yet... Same as on later models? Hold both turn signal buttons simultaneously?

I like to be able to have control of my lights.
If I had handle bar lights on/off switch could do
Off
Accessories
Ignition/acc/lights...

I notice on this Sporty as with my 04 Sporty, no ‘Passing flash ‘ button for the headlight, a momentary flash switch like the horn button to flash the main beam. Why the hell don’t Harley have that ? A Harley ‘thing’ or an American thing common to all US vehicles? No flash headlamp switch ?

My Ford Ranger has a momentary high beam flash, just pull back on the turn signal stalk. Push it forward for high beam always on.

No flash to pass on either my 2002 or 2003 Sportster.
Did have that feature on 2012 Triumph Bonneville, 2016 MotoGuzzi V7II and 2014 Honda CB1100...an oft utilized feature!

My Hondas in the sixties had a taillight-only position.
My 1976 CB750F was the first I remember with headlight always on. A toggle switch added to the bucket provided an option to have key on without headlight load.
