And now a new set of lights .......
« on: June 16, 2012, 04:03:48 am »
Well I hope I finally found lights that work for me. I got these lights mounted the SNARF's mounts, and all I can say is WOW! I am very impressed with their sturdiness/ruggedness their weight is substantial too.  These are pencil/flood lights. Up close their very much a flood light, in that they illuminate everything, but they also shoot a pencil beam the will roast a deer a mile down the road too.  It is very important to make sure these a aimed correctly, out of oncoming traffic and not blinding car in front of you.
 I have mine points down and a little to the sides and it's working very well.  One of the pictures is the sun in front and you can see that they are clearly visible.  I rode them to work at night and they fill in any and all dark voids in front of me, and push the shadows way back of the road shoulder.

Size compared to my glasses.

Mounted on the Rt side

On during the day

and at night, you can see way aiming is very important with these light.

15W each too. That is nice compared to the 55w of normal halogens. At $149 for the set including mounting hardware ( $116 lights only ) the price is not bad. A bit more than 55w halogens would be, but looks like the price of decent LED lights that really work is starting to come down.
