Driving Lights?

anyone using driving lights on their 'Strom? I'm looking at a set of the Motolites, wondering if they'll fit OK.

TIA,
KevinL

I have the amotostuff.com PIAA 510 kit, I went with this vs. the fork mount lights because i was worried about some debris being kicked up and breaking them or a standstill drop would break them. Can't vouch for on the road performance yet though. . .

Saw the motolites at the MOA rally on a Strom, looked sweet. I'm getting a set when I save up the cabbage.

Our own Stromette has the Motolites on her Vee. See: https://stromtrooper.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=6536

If you check out her ongoing ride report of her current trip, page 4 has a photo of her bike that shows the driving lights. It's the 9th photo down from the top of the page. https://stromtrooper.com/forum/viewto...=6143&start=45

If I decide to replace my Wee I'm going to put those lights on the new one.

If the bike at the MOA was black and had AZ plates, well, it was indeed mine. :wink: I *LOVE* the Moto Lights... for both seeing and being seen. The Moto Light company ranks in my top list for superior product AND superior customer service. FWIW, I'd suggest getting their "strap mounted" lights versus the brake caliper mounted ones (which are specific to the Strom)... both function the same but caliper mounted ones must be completely removed whenever you change tires. As someone who changes tires (too) frequently this is a PITA. The strap mounted Moto Lights on my Strom have been rock solid. My riding partner has over 300k on his Moto Lights and they look great. Oh, and they offer lifetime free bulb replacements.

You may want to look at these: http://hondadirectlineusa.com/valkyr...95&ID=86782640

combine them w/ the motolights caliper mount bracket, and you've only spent a little over $100.

I've got the admoto piaa's also they work great, plus give the bike that ADV look. I was in Baja during new moon (no moon lite) turned on the high beams and the piaa's looked like daylight, all the other riders I was with could say was is that bike bright enough, you can guess who got to lead in the dark.

Kevin,

I just got a set of Optilux 1182 fog lights from www.rallylights.com for under $20. These are Hella's budget brand but seem to be top quality. Gonna mount them on the Adventure Motostuff light bar. Total cost including the Autoswitch will be ~ $100. They'll be on before Univest.

KevinL,

To help answer your question......
Yes, MotoLight fits fine on the DL and look good too. You can see 2 photos of the black model on a 1000 here:
