Does your headlight come on before you start the bike?

I've read that the headlight is not supposed to come on until you start the bike.

I have a new SPU box on my bike, and I just want to know what is the normal behavior.

Thanks!

Only my "parking" light comes on before I start the bike, the headlight is off.

I wonder if they changed the behavior with the 910 bikes?

On my '05, low beam + parking light are both on when I turn the key (before starting the bike). And if I left the high beam button pressed, the high beam + parking light will be on when turning the key. Needless to say that I don't leave the contact on for too long without starting the bike .
