    You have no idea your riding a 500lb bike do you. :lol3
    Great vid.
    Ordered the Optimus lights, really looking forward to getting them on the new 1190R.
    Thanks for everything.

    Thanks Chris:clap
    I wish I would have known you where installing these on a new 1190R. We are looking for a semi local bike to make a model specific kit for, I guess your not really semi local, but I love road trips:lol3

    Whats your plan for mounts?

    For now I was just going to mount them on the crash bars.
    On my SMT I have them mounted underneath the headlight fairing with sw motech mounts. I perfer those over the crash bar mount myself. It's nice to have them up a little higher.
    Yes, I wish I was closer to you, I would already be there if it wasn't for that mountain full of snow in between us. LOL

    Sorry we very rarely have a "sale" we do always do offer an ADV rider discount. Use code ADV at checkout.

    Ive pretty much decided on ordering these, but I have a couple questions to ask.
    Would I be better off wiring directly to the battery or running it through a fuzeblock?

    I'm mainly getting it for a month long ride in Alaska, so seeing things before I hit them would be nice. (I know that the sun is up 22 hours a day, but I've hit deer in my car. On a bike looks a lot less fun.)

    Thank You.:clap
    What bike are we talking about? Generally no fuse block is required. (Our harnesses have fuses built in) Usually the reason to run a fuse block is that a guy wants to run several accs limiting how much he can tie into the battery terminals or the lack of a good switched power source. The lights pull .88 amps each.

    They're going on a 2002 Triumph Tiger. I'll be going on a tide to Alaska for about a month this summer. Lighting is something that I think is critical for something like that. The reason I asked about the fuzeblock is that I am putting one on to clean up the wiring a bit.

    When I was just an offroader and did very little time on the street, I never thought about lights for anything but to see and go fast at night, even while owning this business, my sole focus was night racing and riding. Since getting into ADV bikes my eyes have been opened.
    I've not only figured out that lights during the day are a really good thing, I think they have saved me from many collisions with cages.
    If your installing a fuse block by all means use it, however your tiger does not require it. It will give you several options on how you want to setup your lighting.

    For anyone that would wrongfully assume that my post above says no fuse required, please realize that our complete kits with harnesses are fuse protected. So you can run them to the battery if you like.:dealIf you don't use our harness it is highly advisable to use some sort of fuse protection with any aux lighting.

    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:deal

    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!

    [​IMG]

    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. :lol3
    Outstanding light, service, and build quality.
    Very happy with the lights, quick shipping, and excellent communication.:clap
    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.
