Just wanted to update this thread...I went ahead and got some new lights. I think these are going to be much friendlier on the road. I kind of liked the looked of the other ones better, but, when it comes to safety, function over form. We'll see how they work out. Now, on to the next research/job...I think my rear (bike side) brake master cylinder is toast!

Looks good to me! :thumbsup:

I really like those lights, and look forward to your evaluation of how they work for visibility in the day, and vision at night.

Your updated lights look real sharp!
Tell us what are these (make/model)?

Swivel mounts are a must, especially seeing as how the lights are mounted off center on the rig. I got mine set to throw a beam to light the center line a few car lengths ahead, and one is aimed up towards the shoulder to catch street signs. Works well for me, and no complaints so far ...

I think the lights are Harbor Freight Truck driving lights. I only mounted one. I also replaced the bulb with an LED. The only negative is you have to remove the grille to clean the light. They throw a beam a long ways down the road.
