Frickin' deer everywhere.

I just ordered another pair------they are awesome.
Thanks for your business!

No, I run the lights on several vehicles as a DRL and no issues thus far.

I know they don't have any sort of "cut-off" so I'm wondering if anybody has feedback on this. I'd like to know how they work with fog too (in a dimmed mode with low beam) as it is always a winter early morning problem here. This will be used on a DRZ400sm, so not stellar lighting to begin with. Thanks.
The lights don't perform very well as a "fog" light as the light tends to get reflected. They will however fill in all the gaps and allow you to see through corners.

I'll do the same with the Husky.

The dimmer provides good visibility when on low beam as Sanjoh recommends----but I just didn't go that way.
I"ve ridden with him and seen his setup --------really nice.
