I have the first ever long ride planned for this weekend, going to give this adventure riding thing a chance. Think the bag will make it? Spent my money on brake pads and tires, going to get a giant loop next payday. Ride Report coming on monday I hope.

I'd do something like this for my next bike.

http://www.bajadesigns.com/products/...torcycle-light


3600 lumens. Not sure what my 35 W HID 8" is but 3600 is a lot.

I'd just reshape my windscreen and run one of these. Lighter, very power efficient, small package, more durable, etc. At 42 W it confuses me which LED's their running. To the best of my knowledge the "best" commercial ones are 10W, but where do the other 2 watts come into play? 10W LED's are BRIGHT! Hell, 5W are stupid bright, even 3's are bright.

The dimmer switch is another 50$, but it doesn't change the fact the light still scatters. Likely to still piss off cars. I wish those floods had little projector lenses instead. Then have those run all the time, and two spots as the highbeams.

On the Italian BRP how are those lowers mounted to the acerbis tank? Looks like bolts?

Spend a few hours here http://www.candlepowerforums.com/vb/content.php

And build your own. Same drivers, same leds, maybe better better reflectors, aluminum box with mineral glass.

Yes, 35w hid is around 3500 lumens i believe, and 55w is like 3800 if I remember correcty.

They are simply screws.

Kind of looks like this one...

Pricey though. At 789 euros, that's about $17,675
