    Waiting to have Luis (Semper Fi) get a picture of the light spread on his, so we can compare yours to his.

    OK here we go - hope these help.

    The shot below is the bike on the centerstand with the headlight 5 feet from the garage door

    This shot was taken with flash.


    This is the same shot with no flash


    This shot is again with the bike 5 feet from the door but I put it at a 45 degree angle so that the entire left side of the light projection could be captured, no flash

    Looks like a dead ringer for the above picture.

    Semper_fi,
    Thanks for the picture. I can send you some masking tape to fix that side light if its annoying.

    BMW spent a quarter gazillion Euro to design a light to illuminate deer in the left ditch and you guys don't even like it. What's a guy to do? Back to the drawing boards.
