Can you by any chance provide a linc to those particular lights. I ride a lot at night and these would be wonderful.

No worries
eBay Australia: Buy new & used fashion, electronics & home d

I sent them the pictures to help them with advertisement as well, they haven't used them yet but they said they would so maybe if you want to send them an email first and say that eBay user ID Gaza_12345 (the one who sent you the pictures) told you about them you might be able to get a better price they told me they would give me the best deal on anything else they had for sale but unfortunately that's all I wanted from them.

Let me know how you go.

Motorcycle Lights | Motolight

They have LED as well as Halogen...they are not cheap though.

we have the Motolights installed on our police HD's, they are mounted using the upper caliper bolt.... the light output sucks.... they are grossly over priced and run EXTREMELY HOT.....

I used a $40 pair from Wally World at 55watts per side. Installed a relay and a dirtbike switch mounted on the handle bar. I installed these lights 6 years ago and have done many rides in the Florida rain and never have had a single issue.

After checking out several options this is the set I went with. MM10AUX MondoMotos | Motorcycle Outfitters
I got the set with the harness, switch, & relay. I used the bracket from twisted throttle TwistedThrottle Auxiliary Headlight Mounting Bar for Suzuki DL650 and DL1000 V-Strom, '04-'11 - TwistedThrottle.com
and the switch mount from twisted throttle Light Switch Mount for PIAA and Denali light switches (flat mount for metric motorcycles) - Auxiliary Headlight Mounts - Auxiliary Headlights - Lighting & Visibility - Shop by Product - TwistedThrottle.com

Everything fit good and seems work very well. The lights are really bright!

Yup. I am going to be adding a Goldwing to the garage, it has some 55 watters on it now. They are going, and I am buying a set of the dually's for the wing, too...

Best ever.
