Thanks for asking.
We are planning on getting some new shots for all the lights including the NXG series and the NEW Long Range Extreme.
That wont happen for a few weeks yet. Waiting on a date from the photographer.

Pictures of the 60 degree Optimus round as well please

I'm curious to see what the beam pattern would be for the 60 degree Optimus Round? I realise the 60 degree spread will compromise the distance significantly, but I'm wondering what it would be like as a low beam for roo spotting at the side of the road, with a 20 degree as the main beam.

Cheers,

Adrian

We will line all the bike mounted lights up that we have available, thanks for the interest.
Off To MOA this AM

I like the new wiring diagram. It makes more sense.

Darryl, I've been under the weather with the sciatic nerve issue for almost a month. I can finally ride and walk once again. I hope to get some pics of the F650GS installation in a few days.

Thanks

Thanks to everyone who stopped by and checked out the best LED lights available at this years MOA Rally. I meet lots of great folks and had a blast
One thing that really stood out was how much misinformation is out there on lighting. More on that to come.

Here's some shots of my Hella 500 50w HID 4300K.









the person in the last one is about 5-600 ft or a bit further away...I zoomed in a bit.

As you can see the amount of light from my hellas is crazy...but thats what I need when I drive in a place where its not uncommon to see 20 moose on the road in a 2.5 hr drive.
Kojack that is mightily impressive! THAT kind of lighting is what i wanted on my Versys!!!

yeah, 6inch light is way too big to be installed on a bike it made the bike look stupidly ridiculous. But still the output is just so so so awesome!

But then again, such brightness is definitely illegal and will get me in trouble with the local LEOs. Darn it.

If all goes well there will be an install of the Long Range extreme on a 2013 water boxer later this week.
Trying to work out the dimming situation on the extreme today.
I don't think the lights are to big for a GS, after all they are smaller than the PIAA 610

Went on a ride with some buddies a week or so ago, and I was using the afore-mentioned twins as DRL's.

THAT was not well received by my riding buddies-- the lights are simply too bright for that, they said. I confirmed this several days later after I traded bikes & rode ahead of my own: it was like looking at an arc welder in action.

These things are seriously bright.

Interestingly enough, I've not yet had a chance to use them at night because of the long summer days.

Thanks for asking.
Helmet mounted lights and my personal need for good Off Road lighting is what started our business.
Our Solstice HID is king of helmet mounted lights. approx. 100 yards of powerful light that will run from the bike., options for batteries or only bike power.
There is no better Lighting available for off road than a good helmet mounted light. LEDs just don't cut it here.
The only down side to a helmet mounted setup is very heavy dust.

Ill be using mine tonight.

Amber or 2700K LED Lights

I am looking for high power LED lights in the 2700K to 2200k color temperature. This is the light that the human eye is most sensitive to and would help a person to see animals like dear on the road or to the side.

I find that the white LED or HID lights don't show up things other than signs much.

Its definitely true that lower K colors work better in dust/fog.
We've been preaching this to the Dirt riders for over 10 years.
You wont find any Good LED under 4400K. Halogens are typ 3000 to 3500K.
Filters do change a lights color, but also reduce light output.
We did a 200 mile dirt ride last night and taped it with my helmet cam.
hopefully I can get an edit done after this weekend.
We are not selling Snake oil,
I can tell you we see a lot more than signs with Cyclops quality lights.

The problem with the signs is that they reflect back so bright that it wipes out your night vision. It is almost like oncoming head lights.

It would not be hard to get LEDs with lower color temperature. They just need to change the phosphor that is used. Or even use amber LEDs (which date back to just after RED). All of the white LEDs are based on ultra violet led that illuminates a phosphor coating. It is a lot like the florescent bulbs. and they make those in lower color temperatures.

All it would take is some one with enough sales volume or group approaching the LED manufacturer with the request.

Here is an Amber LED that you might fit in one of your products. http://www.mouser.com/Search/Product...snei10Cw%3d%3d

Or this http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...9SIA0XA0902066
