Aux Lamps.

I will prolly add these MondoMotos MM10 Bullet LED Auxiliary Light Kit (V2) | MondoMotos Motorcycle Lighting, LED Lighting and Accessories in time. Question for me would be where to mount the switch. And input on the mounting location would also be appreciated. An extra 10 bucks can get you a handlebar switch but I don't like the looks.
About the product; like anyone who has owned a Stelvio that comes with a full package of dual sport addons, the aux lamps wiring burned thru the casings due to vibration which actually continued to destroy even the mounts, cracking them thru. Guzzi owners have a great backup site (God knows they need it) in GuzziTech and thru a fellow Stelvio owner I was directed to these. You can see the very attractive price of about $110. Just could not see paying some lights's overprices that can run to 2 or 3 hun. The MG came with a builtin switch and readout so it was a simple task of mounting and wiring. The output was as good or better than the factory mounted crap and I was a happy camper. The only downfall was a couple of very small, flimsy stainless mount brackets that would not have held up on the Stelvio. Fellow owner Peter actually machined a couple of billet aluminium ones and sent me a pair.
The small, light brackets may not be an issue on the V2.

Addendum; I see the price has gone up a bit Version 2

That's not a bad price but a bud of mine found some about that Size that are made by the folks who make them for Cree. They sell for $60 on fleabag and are super bright, I had them on my Connie. I'm gonna put my switch on the flat part of the dash either to the left or right of the gauge cluster. As to mounting, I have the OEM crashbars that have a loop in the front just begging to have lights pit in them.

Had a look. Sorry Jake, but besides the whole made in Hong Kong thing and the 'Transformer' look I gotta go with Mondos. Plus it looks like only the lights and wires, no complete kit. At least, I couldn't find any info like that.:-|
