LED lights on hand guards

Has anyone installed LED's on their hand guards and is there any problems at night with the lights bleeding over to the windshield??

Same here, I get a faint glow sometimes on my fluorescent gloves, but that's about it. They are still quite bright from front though, I have them on my mirrors too though so that's why they glow

I had white LED strips on my handguards for a short while, but I removed them when I installed proper aux LED lights. I definitely noticed that the handguard LEDs resulted in light reflected off of the windshield (noticed it everyday in the parking garage).
