Yes, I agree, the stock light is very good. I don't know why other brands only burn one bulb at a time?
I work at night, so it's always dark and I only use the aux lights to be more visible to the Zombies.
Re: Rigid Ind lights. Their video shows them shooting them with a shot gun and beating with a sledge! Not cheap, but you get what you pay for, the Triumph lights are actually made in China!

Performance.... As in Shrewsbury? That's the one I ended up at to make a pickup a few weeks ago. No luck.

Anyway, for a "back ordered" item... They came in yesterday despite the fact I ordered them Sunday night. Todays mission is to install those along with the Motech headlight protectors that my wife grabbed for Christmas. I love this woman.

I couldn't handle the brushed aluminum guards for the lights, they match nothing on the 2012. They are currently swinging in the breeze in front of the Illudium238 Wood Demodulator with a nice coat of satin black. Aluminum isn't the greatest thing to get paint to stick to, but if it doesn't work I have plenty of ways to remove it.

Ok, I'm reviving another older thread... Does anyone run these during normal daylight riding just for increased cager visibility?

I do most of the time. I believe that it not only increases visibility to cagers, but also gives them more to triangulate on for judging your speed and distance. I found I have far fewer incidents of people pulling out or turning in front of me when they are on.

Likewise.

The only time I don't run them day is when I'm with a couple other riders and as a group we're more visible by that alone.

A word of warning about the new LED Triumph lights. They are very weak. It can be hard to tell whether or not they are on.

I've heard about that and am SO glad I got mine as the halogen before the new LED ones were released.

If you can't get the halogen ones, go with Denali from Twisted Throttle or other distributor.

I noticed on the US site at least, the 55w halogen is now the only option they offer. The LED appears to be gone.

Seriously?!? They got discontinued?!? They just introduced them! If that's true, I want an exchange. . .
