The dimmed setting, I have no good reason to ever turn off when the bike's on, and the brights setting is blinding. So having extra control on a switch for "I really want off-road/off-traffic lights" is very nice.
If I understand correctly, your LEDs go to 100% at high beam only if the switch is on, right? Nice, but my bike has an useless high beam (because of the brightness of the low beam HID) so I think the HBB will work for me.

On a side note, is really a bad idea wire the LEDs from the auxiliary connection in the fusebox? is 10 amp fused and switched but they already power my heated grips. Can I just put a 15 amp fuse?
