Triumph has to follow DOT guidelines that requires the headlight to illuminate areas to the sides. I replaced my headlight lens/bulb with an aftermarket and it makes all the difference in the world. The beam is more like a spot than a flood. I also have the aux light bar installed to illuminate a wider path if needed.

I had the same problems with my other bikes too... Replacing the headlight lens/bulb with an aftermarket is the answer.

Please tell me what type lens did you use ? Have looked at several and can't decide what would be better.
