Fair point about having them mounted at the front. They haven't been fully installed yet so i might try mounting them just above the relectors on the forks.
Thanks for the input.

Check this thread there are some good photos in it to illustrate the triangle of light concept.

I understand the argument for the triangle effect. but i find putting at the widest part of bike so that in combination of headlight gives a really wide stance - it seem easier to be seen especially when moving in and out of traffic (as opposed to triangle which seem to work better in clear or low traffic)

I seem a lot of new bikes have "parking" or DRL mounted on mirrors from the factory. i mounted mine on my handguards.

I use a set lights which is ADR approved for use as emergency strobe lights which have a wide spread pattern similar to DRL.

No i dont used the lights at light at all.

Default Followup

Got pulled over today.

Didn't catch me speeding :}, so RBT & rego check by one cop, while another cop checks the bike for anything bookable.

Looked at the LED driving lights, didn't say a thing - mind you mine do have covers on them so I can say with hand on heart "For off road use" if I have to. This is SE QLD, which is a bit more relaxed than some parts of Oz.

FWIW. The 2012 model already has running lights, top outside corner of the reflector.

Default Blitz of some sort....

The boys in blue were out there this weekend in SE Qld, you got through OK Pete. But as other threads pointed out, not so lucky for many sports bikes. I am glad I had the weekend off I guess. Although the weather was awesome.

As for the lights, KIWI is on track. Speaking from experience Red Neddy behind me with his low down on the forks running lights stands out from any other bike behind me, as viewed in my mirrors. The triangle effect gives the bike presence... and brilliance.

I want some before I head to Tassie in March next year.
