Lights and Cans

Sorry for all the garage queen shots. I do actually ride her. Just get some things done before I leave for a weekend trip to Deals Gap next weekend.

Lights


As you can see at eye level they are blinding.


2 HID 35watt for the main bulbs and 4 10watt each LED lights 2 up high and 2 lower on the highway peg bar i just made. and a small pair of 3watt LED up high. For a grand total of 116 watts of beautiful light out put. Since the stock ballasts but out such a great light output even with HID's the LED mainly fill in a few little voids as well as add a little more night vision. I have been playing with lights on all my bikes for years and this is the best so far. I will get some night shots while I am on my trip.

2 up high


2 down low on the peg bar. Good use of an old set of stock DRZ400e pegs i had laying around.

Yes, keeping the DR, it's too good to sell. Lowered it so Mrs Shady can more easily ride it while I'm on the Strom. Today she came and just took it to town while I was working in the shop. I think she might be bonding with it.

Also still have the XT225 so I have some very different bases covered.
