Best LED Aux Driving Lights (at a reasonable price)?

My last GS has a set of Hella FF50's for driving lights, and a set of Motolights for conspicuity. The FF50 lightsd were great, but no longer available. The motolights were very expensive, and nearly useless.

On my new to me GS I want to go with LEDs. I have installed a few different sets on friend's bikes, and have been impressed. BUT, I want to keep the price reasonable, and want driving lights that put out!

So, what have you used, pros and cons?

Jim

Best and most expensive - Baja Designs Squadron
Very good and a bit less $ - Rigid D2
Less $ and no comparison on light output - Krista

May be others out there but those are from my personal experience and a side by side shootout.

Just picked up a set from Amazon for $155, they sound like they were an "open package" type return so they knocked $35 off them..SWEET!

PS I love the Kristas, but not the price. I have installed a couple sets for others.

Those mounts were made by some ADVrider guy who did it at work with access to some CNC machinery using a design from another ADV guy who'd had the design. Cut from solid billet alum. They work by replacing the stalk for your turn signals and add the curved bracket for the additional lights. Sorry to be so vague but it was one of those group buys... if you signed up and paid your money, you eventually got a set (I waited several months). The guy that ran the group buy goes by YBViking here on ADVrider. Not sure if there were any left or any plans to make more. If that's the case, it's too bad cuz they work really well, solid as shit. If you contact YBViking, he could tell you the status. Sorry I could not be of more help.

I have seen quite a few people happy with these.
Anyone know anywhere in Europe to get them?

E Bay. They are sold from Hong Kong, take about a week to arrive and are under €100 for a kit. I've fitted them to my MTS and am delighted with them, excellent quality and light output.
