LED Driving Lights?

Has anyone switched from the HID to LED driving lights? If so, which make/model did you choose and why? Am thinking of making a change. Thanks.

Amazing

I have an '07 GSA and can't tell you how many torrential rainstorms I either rode through or the bike simply endured while parked in Panama for two years. Never a problem.

I certainly wouldn't use Visa at any of the border crossings. Skimmers are a huge thing here in CA and it's nothing for someone to say that they need to swipe your card in the "back office" only to...
