    Question Conspicuity lighting

    I am interested in adding some lighting for conspicuity purposes.

    I do not want fog, driving, nor aircraft landing lights.

    I want two lights facing forward and one light on each side in amber. I am thinking about LED's because of lower wattage/amps.

    Suggestions?
    TIA

    Skene Design Photon Blasters http://skenedesign.com/lights/PB_Features.shtml are the cat's meow -- I have them, and they are terrific!

    PIAA 110X are popular

    Cross Country HID are making their way but spendy

    Another option are Denali LED's - small but powerfull - good write up

    BTW went with 1100x as they are only $175 now on Amazon

    I've been looking real hard at the VisionX Solstice Solo LED lights (with the 45/15 beam). These LED lights are the same as used in the Denali lighting kit from Twisted Throttle. A pair of lights can be had for prices as low as $214. One will still need to come up with a means of mounting the lights and obtain a relay, fuse, and switch.

    With the low current draw of the LED lights some have indicated that the lights could just run throught a switch, but I kind of like the idea of using a relay. All things considered the Denali kit doesn't look too bad as the switch, relay,fuse, and generic mount are included.

    The LED lights offer a nice option for folks with airheads that don't have upgraded charging systems.

    The VisionX Solstice lights can be obtained for $119 each (less a 10% discount if the code "piratex" is used as the code for an on-line purchase) at -

    The Denali kit from Twisted Throttle link has been given, but here it is again -

    Maybe the BMW MOA could talk Twisted Throttle into offering a discount if some code-word (e.g., BMWMOA) is used...

    Here are your side amber lights: http://www.whelen.com/_AUTOMOTIVE/de...74&prod_id=112

    Whelen has tons of fun stuff to play with. I love having super-bright strobes flashing when I've activated my turn signals. People avoid me like the plague
