    got em installed on the xr, and am 100% satisfied. These have got to be one of the brightest lights that I've ever seen. Did about 50 miles on some windy single lane roads, with some dirt roads thrown in there, and now when I turn them off, my (usually more than adequate) headlight feels as if it isn't even on. Great build quality, seem to be holding up to the rain/mud/bug strikes really well. I got the pair of floods, and I will vouch for the fact that it would be unwise/unkind to use them when other vehicles are present, but when you are the only one, there's no harm in giving the deer a tan. I'll try to get some night pictures up later.

    Bitchin lights. Powered them up off a hot lead, and nearly blinded myself. The stock light on my Dr650 couldn't be seen on a wall 10 feet away. Just one 24 watt flood light was clearly visible in broad daylight.

    So. Here's my question. Before I go and F*$& this all up, how EXACTLY do these waterproof wiring connectors go together? Pictorial description anyone?:freaky

    --Alex

    Edit: Ugh, please excuse me for being a DA (Dumbass). I took a look at the connectors, saw the picture from the link to Touratech's site, and figured it out in 5 mins. Thanks.

    I think you could charge extra if you threw in some of those stickers....

    : )

    Just because I value someone with a sick sense of humor, I will be placing a order for my "landing lights" very soon.

    No joke about the "landing lights." LEDs are being used for landing and taxi lights. Saw some on a light AC at Oshkosh this year. Here's an interesting comparison of LED/HID for aircraft use: http://www.malibuaerospace.com/sitepages/pid73.php

    Yes, I've ordered a pair.

    Just looking at the mount...looks a little thin where it attaches tot he light, looks like it might vibrate or bend real easy. Such a big light for thin metal.

    Such a big light:jack

    Please review the pictures with dimensions. The brackets are stainless and encompass the entire light, plenty strong for the intended use.

    And I would have to agree with Sanjoh. Though I didn't have the lights wired up, I rode 25 miles off road, gravel, large rocky river beds, sandy whoops, etc. Nothing weeny here. Those mounts held the lights with ease. No distortion in the metal, no visible vibration. Great quality mounts.

    --Alex

    After wiring up my two 24watt flood lights, I can't imagine lighting up the road at night with oncoming traffic. These bad boys really are impressive. I'll try to get some beam patterns up tomorrow night also. These lights are bitchin.

    In the pics of the lights hitting the trees/bushes, I assume the flood is on the bike's left side, and the spot on the right? (ie hence it's opposite in the view facing the lights on page 2, where flood is right, and spot is left?

    Have these lights been tested in ongoing high heat? Especially if stationary (eg no air flow over them). Running them with night time temps of ~80F for a couple of hours, and prolonged stationary stops. Just curious at how they survive.

    Also what is the temperature of the glass like?

    Can we also get some beam patterns, those shown from the pool, don't do it justice. Shone up against a garage from a reasonable distance would be good.

    thanks :)

    I live in Florida and have had them on for 9 hours at one time with no heat related issues. I've ridden single track at less than first gear speeds for 2+ hours on the same set of lights without issue.

    Please see the tree pics and comments from others on beam pattern.

    Just looking at the arrow below, looks like a bending prone area. Hard to tell from the picts as how thick it really is.
