    Can we see the bike and how you mounted the lights?

    Those LED's are very impressive. How does traffic react to their glare?

    I dont use them in traffic. Im sure you would blind them. I have them setup to come on with the high beams. I can dim them with the dimmer for traffic use but i just got them installed and havent tried them yet with traffic and i probably wont. We live close to a state highway with a good size median and the floods will shine all the way across the highway into the ditch on both sides. Im waiting for some clown to flash me or just come at me with his brights on.

    I will shoot for some better pics of how they are mounted this weekend. Pics dont do any of these lights justice. You can barely see the hid in the pics and it is bright in person.

    I have the same lights (mounted lower at the fork refelctor site and not aimed as far out to the sides) and run them the on road quite a bit about 3/4 with no flashes or complaints so far. When you get out in front of the bike, it really does not have as much "glare" as it would seem. Have passed several Leos as well. One macomb county sheriff stopped and asked about my lights in reference to his Harley. Just my personal observation, but many of the cars/trucks rolling around with the purple colored headlights produce way more glare and are more problematic than these whiter, brighter, leds. My origianl intent was to use them as daytime visibility lights and for off-raod. I have been pleasantly surprised to be able to use them on road as well. ADV monster sells a spot lamp that might be better suited for on-road use.

    That is awesome!!

    Probably too much power draw for my 1989 TW200 huh?

    With all the night time stuff my friends and I do on bikes, I'd like to find a way to run brighter lights on the old TW electrical system.
