    Recomendations for Fog Lights on a 2012 G650GS?

    My wife rides a 2012 G650GS and from the front it only has the single headlight config. I would like to get some LED Fog Lights on the front of this bike so that she is more noticeable on the road. I am 100% sure that it has helped me be more noticeable to oncoming traffic, besides being safer when out at night. My bikes came with kits - her bike is previously owned and did not. We're hours from a BMW Dealership and I'd like to do something on my own if possible. I've spent a few hours googling solutions and by the end of it I'm no closer to a decision than when I started. What do you have that works + easy to install? Take care & Thanks - B

    Put a set of Rigid D2's on my wife's 650, for mounting I bought a piece of aluminum angle, and a couple of U bolts to attach it to the frame. Increases conspicuousness 5-10 fold in my opinion. High quality American made lights.

    There's a good deal on the Model 30's right now, $40 each. If you're looking for conspicuity lighting, you can't go wrong. We've put them on 3 of our bikes over the past few years and they've worked great.

    I put a set of Rigid spots on my R100GS with the yellow fog covers.
    Very effective and very noticeable.

    The lens comes off in seconds.

    +1 on ADVMonster. Just put a model 30 (spot) and a model 40 (flood) on my R1200GS, running both through the ADVMonster dimmer. Seems to work well - visibility while on low and nice nighttime illumination when on high. I'd still like to have a low and high separate from the bikes low and high.

    These lights seem good quality and a great value in comparison to others that are hundreds more. Time will tell - I've only ridden with them for a couple days and a few hundred miles.
    a little better, every day
