Even on the Gen 1 bike I found that the headlights are sensational.  Best I've ever had on a bike.

Regards,

Richard

It seems we are all impressed by our LED headlights except NiK, who still insists on fitting extras.  -Not even the OEM LED fog lights are extra enough for him.

Inspired by this topic, I just found a pair of H4 (9003) LED replacement lamps for my TEX at the local auto parts store. Plug and play for C$50 a pair (same price as halogens). Very happy with the results so far. Looking forward to trying them in the dark.  :054:

Don't get me wrong: I've always found the Tex's headlight to be the best I've ever rode with at night.
I simply want more lights. Always.
And I don't want to be cured ;-)

Oh my, first ride in the dark and holy crap those headlights are awesome, best bike lights I have ever used by a country mile. 370 miles done and lovin this bike more with every mile 👍🏽🏍👍🏽

They are good lights and best of all- they are Legal!

Ive been a fan of HIDs for years on various Adventure bikes and replaced halogens with HIDs ballasts etc as I used to ride all year around. HIDs get you seen- and enable you to see when in the country lanes etc. These LEDs and side-spots do what Im used to. Ive not done too many dark miles but had an hour or so monthly during last winter on the M25 and they did what I wanted.
