I have avoided night riding, and mostly because of the poor lighting on my 1200I. I have a Sylvania Silver Star Ultra lamp installed, running off a relayand although it is bright enough, the optics of the lens and reflector make for a very narrow light band vertically so rises and dips in the road are not really lit.

I have a 55 ampexternal alternator installed so power is not an issueso I would like to add a couple of top notch road lamps.

I have seen some very compact lamps by PIAA and was wondering if anyone had any opinions on these or other lamps.

I have a set of PIAA's on my 1500. They light up very well right in front of the bike, but not far down the road. Definitly better than other lights I've tried. They are also well seen during the day.

Very cool dwsonar. I see you are a member of that other forum as well. Would you mind asking VTXCandyRed what LED lights those are and where he found them, please?

Thank you!

I am interested also..I have lights from Cyclemax but the chrome has worn off one cap and he only sells the light complete for just under 50 Bucks for 1 light...LOL :watching:

I may as well locate a decent set and replace both of these ones.

Pete got in touch with me. The lights I have came from vtxfrog and I don't know if he can still get them. He was on the NAGF board. http://www.northamericangoldwings.com/

Thank you for the reply. I think I would be interested in a pair if he can, or if he can point me toward a source. In the meantime I'll keep searching for the right solution for me.
Thank you my friend!

EDIT:
Just wondering, are they anything like these?

Here's a close up in daylight, the little black shield seems to have fallen off the inner halogen bulb, but it's a sealed beam .... so it just lays there.

I kind of remember the thread over on NAGF. Wasn't there an issue with those lights leaking a bit and needing additional sealing? But once sealed properly, they were supposed to be pretty decent....
