Added the PIAAs

Rode across Skyline Boulevard the other night at about 10pm - really nice to have the road lit up with these working with the high beams. To say it's an improvement is a huge understatement.

I'm going to give them another chance with these new bulbs, but if the bulbs keep failing I'll ditch them and get an L.E.D. setup next...
Hey buddy. My "kappa" lights working well for me. I think Givi and Kappa thats the same. Until now, no problems. Cheers

Looks good!
You´re right, touratech crash bars. Good, but expensive.

Nice ride!

I've been talking with CFPS too! I got a quote the other day from Chuck.
If I could ask, what did they give you for quote? I'd be interested to see how it compares to mine.
Thanks!

They are no LED crap

The problem is they don't shoot far, they are designed to be fog lights

I want something that will shoot a beam like a laser

They made it to Prudhoe Bay and back and are still working fine, my friend had the LED one's (not sure which make) and they were full of water bubbles on the inside of the lens, he told me he paid something like $300

Mine don't have any problems
