    I finally got around to finishing the install of these on my 2000 R1100RT. I am really happy with them.
    They were shipped out quickly, and at my door quicker than expected. They are good looking lights & seem very well constructed.
    The install was easy. I used the dimmer but did not use the override wire as I normally ride with the bright on during the day.
    I used 1.5 “ self adhesive anti skid pads that I got at home depot on the mounting plate. I trimmed the pads once on the mounting plate. I used those because I was mounting to the RT’s plastic fenders and the plastic on plastic seemed like it may cause some slippage once I had them aimed. Seems to work, they seem pretty well in place once I got them aimed & tightened up.
    This has been said before, “they are really bright”. I am glad I have the dimmer, they really are that bright.
    All in all I am really happy with these lights, I think they look good on the RT & they are very functional.
    Thanks Justin! Add me to the list of happy customers

    I have to say that I think they're going to get shaken to bits mounted there as they're taking every bump that the front wheel hits without any suspension absorbtion.
    I would have stuck them just in front of the BMW badge on the fairing.

    Thanks for the feedback, glad you're happy with the lights. Install looks nice :clap

    Curious though, are there no options for higher mounting? I find that high output lights mounted low like that wash out the road close in and don't give a lot of distance. The higher the better IMO, when it comes to aux lighting.

    There are mounting brackets available that would put them over the mirrors. I don't particularly like that look. The other option would be to mount to the side panel. I considered that, but decided I didn't want to put any holes in the side panels.
    I'll give them some time where they are & see how they work out there.

    If looks was the driving factor of placing them there, then it was a success :)

    They look good where they are to me.
    Just a thought ....what about just below the headlight just in front the radiator screens?

    Three of them are our LR4 lights. The upper right appears to be another brand.

    Do they hit anything when turning your bars back and forth from each extreme?

    Hello ADVriders :)

    We're launching a new product and y'all are the first to get in on a pre-order deal. I'd like to introduce you to the LR5 light, featuring 5 Cree XM-L LED chips, and built to take anything you can throw at them. These lights put out a retina searing 5000 Lumens from a mere 45 watts of power, in a 4.3 inch housing. With it's PC lenses, UV resistant polyester powercoat finish, waterproof Deutsch connectors and stainless steel wiring grommets, the LR5 is built to be as tough as nails.

    Please see the following URL for more pictures and details: http://ledrider.com/shop/?model_number=LR5P

    You can order these lights with 1 meter leads past the Deutsch connectors, or a full multi-vehicle relay harness with switch. Note that the optional relay harness is designed to fit all types of vehicles from trucks to power sports, so will require shortening or hiding of wires on motorcycles. Also note that these work great for all off road vehicles where massive lighting is desired.

    Pricing on these are $275 a pair, and they come with a 2 year warranty. For the next few weeks we're offering a 20% off pre-order deal until our next production batch gets in. Use coupon code "LR520" when placing an order with the URL above.

    Edit: Single light opting added as well (pre-order discount applies): http://ledrider.com/shop/?model_number=LR5S

    As mentioned above, these lights pull 45 watts each, so please ensure that your electrical system is up to the task to handle a pair of these. We'll be offering single units, which will make a great headlight replacement when new stock arrives.

    So just to be clear on this, to get one light it would be $137.50 less 20% discount plus shipping? Will your dimmer work with these? I am thinking of buying one for my 530exc to replace the headlight with. If I could leave the dimmer on low as the low beam light and wire the high beam switch through the bypass that would act strictly as my high beam?
