Lightbulb Spot Light Pair Work A Treate

Last winter I purchased and fitted a pair of running/spot lights to my bike. I don't do a great deal of night riding but this evening (photo is from last week) I came through 18 miles of mountain roads in the dark and was thrilled with the difference these made. You really notice it when you can switch to high beam, the whole road (left and right) is just lit up with a bright white light. Really please I fitted them, despite the cost.

Cheerio,

Roy

Those look really bright, Roy. Sweet!

I rode home in the dark for the first time about 2 weeks ago and was blown away by how bright my JW Speaker/Motodemic adaptive LED headlight was. It was also amazing to experience the adaptive LEDs when going around corners. Simply fantastic, and worth every penny.

Each one matters.

Thanks mate and well done on yours.

I never thought extra lights would make such a difference. But when one is out of town and critters are about (deer, skunks, mountain lion...Bear...), it give one a little more confidence.

Cheerio,

Roy

I dig it.

I bet oncoming traffic sees a triangle of lights and says "WTF is that?"

I mean, you do live in Alien country...

Would you please post a link to where you purchased your spot light setup.

Thanks in advance.

So one light was $289? But they look so darn cool! I don't ride much (any) at night but I would just love to have them on my Bobber.

Yeah,

I only have two complaints about the, the fist is the cost, the second was the finish. But they were what I wanted so I dug deep.

I plan to have the cased powder coated at some point but that's on my to-do list.

Cheerio,

Roy

Hi Roy, How do you activate the light? Is there a separate switch for it or is it connected to the original headlight switch?
