Hey folks!
After converting my standard old fashioned headlights to the latest US clear-glass set I when one step further with my improvement.
The safety factor is TOP NOTCH! The Aesthetics is all a matter of taste. some love it others may hate it.
To be honest, when my car audio technician proposed it to me.. I was not quite sure this was going to match nicely.
In the end I loved it. And the rest of the traffic gives me serious respect as I am noticed immediately when coming from the rear.
No more sunned breaking cause the car in front of me switched lanes. They notice me to the extent that I am annoying them and they are letting me pass.
Plus at junctions the bright white headlights assure the crossing vehicle that I am also a vehicle and will not be mistaken with the casual yellowish street light..
Enjoy the images!








I also think it has given the bike a robot like look. Let's see some goldwings as TRANSFORMERS;)

Hi. Looks impressive. Any chance of some details on the conversion please? HID equipment manufacturer, how to open the headlight assembly (oven?), where did you put the ballast(s), do you still have low and high beam, can you still adjust the height of the beam, is it legal in Europe, etc...?

Thanks.

@vtxcandyred: Sorry didnt get the Lingo. IS that a possitive or negative remark? :p

@Nico: Will add specs later when my Electrician who installed it will have me informed. Hi low beam is addjusted electronicaly with in those "bulbs" that has something like a small mirror inside and flips the light beam higher and lower.
YES they are adjustable as before. No changes there. Balast are behind the speakers. Legal in europe?... hmmm in Greece it is... Dono about your country sorry.

We were not allowed to leave the beach we were on because I was from an aircraft carrier and the town nearest to us was rather small and we would have doubled the population. I got to go with the duty driver to the base for more beer. I had fallen earlier and twisted my leg. Being DRUNK I never noticed the pain until we were on the way back and was sobering up. WOW..... WHAT PAIN. I could hardly walk. I was in a cast for fifteen weeks. I had torn all the tendons and ligaments in that leg. I remember taking a tour of the Fix beer brewery. Is that still going?????

The complete cost with installation and the LED marker lights cost me 250 euros. (aprox. $370) but I am sure that stuff is cheaper there.
I have seen an ad going for $80 each angel eye.
Installation should not be very difficult, yet I prefer ALL electronic installations of my bike to be performed my specialists. The mechanical stuff I do my self.
