Very bright, even in daylight. Haven't had a driver not yield when I approach.

Awesome, and how did you mount them? Would you be willing to take a few photos of your mounting system for those of us considering doing this? I've been on a slow burn for adding lights to my Connie and this may be it.

Ran across this some time back... makes sense, and I have had very few incidents of people pulling in front of me. I don't assume they will see me, and am prepared to evade or brake, but I think they do.

Really good reading Jorge. Had the modulator on my bike when the idjut pulled out in front of me.....not sure the additional lights would have prevented that one but I like the science and the method in the article

Some time ago I posted my impressions and how to mount LED light under the mirrors.
Here is the link.
