Didn't have time to do more than open the box and peek inside before it was time to leave.

Shoulda known better since everything else is so professionally done

Yes the pad the lights are mounted on swivel 360 degrees left and right as well as rotate up and down on the tube.

photo shots

A few have requested individual photo shots of beam patterns in addition to the animation.
Ill break that up into the individual lights

The truck is parked at exactly 600 ft, the gate behind the truck is slightly more than 900 ft. Note these photos are taken on light absorbing dirt, not a reflective paved road. The cones are at exactly 100 ft intervals. No BS photos here

Here are the Long Range LEDs, Ill add the Long Range Extreme and NXG LEDs asap

10 degree Long Range lights



20 degree Long Range



Combo package one 10 and one 20 Degree Long Range light

Yess, now they have arrived!



But, alas, so has a bill from SKAT, which is the Danish Tax Authorities. Remember ye all within the EU: Tax and VAT will be added, which put another 32% to the pice
Well, done is done, tried one of them on a 9-volt battery. Still have got a bright yellow square inside my head when I close my eyes. Now looking forward to try them in real life.

I've always wondered why they call it a "value added tax". It almost seems like they're trying to convince you that it's a benefit.

Ouch looks like you guys get hosed when buying products from the US. I wish we could do something about that.
I'm surprised they fired with a 9 volt battery, although they are rated from 9 to 32V I wouldn't think a 9v battery had enough current. that's impressive, might make a good trade show display, wait till you try real power.

I received my round 10 degree lights and got them mounted up with the crash bar mounts I already had.
I don't know if I like the mounts all that much. A little on the delicate side for those lights I think. Plus I wish they were a little higher up like the ones on my SMT in the background in the pictures.
The lights themselves are freaken awesome. I haven't wired them into the bike yet but I did hook them to a car battery and light up the neighborhood.
Outstanding light, service, and build quality.
Very happy with the lights, quick shipping, and excellent communication.
I may have to fire up the milling machine and build my own light mounts for this bike if I can't find any others that I like.
Thanks again for the excellent service and product.

Looks really good. Mine should be here next week. How and where to mount is my biggest concern.

Thanks for the photos, Those look great on the 1190R.
On my personal bike I welded small tabs to the crash bars, understand most wont want to do that to their pretty powdercoating.

The Techmount tube mounts where the best we have seen (for tube mounting anyways) and are the same as offered by PIAA and many others.

One tip on mounting them is to clean any oil etc out of the barrel hole/stem and use red Loctite. Get that set screw good and tight.

If anyone knows of a better tube frame mount I would love to hear about it. We want to offer only the best.

Long Range Extreme LED lights

I absolutely love these lights. one light can be configured in several different beam patterns and colors via the replaceable polycarbonate filters that snap on the front of the light. A rider can mix and match to truly tune their lighting for any condition.

The longest distance LED aux light in existence, built tough to last.
Dimmable with the skene dimmer.

Team Heavyweights all ran these at the 24hr and had the best lighting at the event.

The cones in these photos are at 100 ft intervals with the truck parked at 600 ft and the gate slightly more than 900 ft.

Here are the Long Range Extreme with no filters


The Extreme LEDs with the Amber spot filters


The Same Extreme LED lights with the clear flood filters installed

LR Extreme ordered for 950SE

LR Extreme dual LED race light ordered today.

Can't wait to get them installed on the SE... no more worthless stock lighting! I'll post the setup & thoughts when I get them installed.

Cheers.
