If any of you noticed what looked like a nuclear flash in the Pacific Northwest this afternoon, don't fret - its just the new high beam on my bike.

Based on the experience and postings of "lowndes", I ordered the H7 replacement unit for my S. Received and installed today. Installation is as simple as replacing the standard bulb. But the results are, in two words, "HOLY SH*T!"

I can't wait to go for a ride when the sun goes down. And if I run into any Left Lane Louies (or Louises), they'll be getting the paint on their trunk blistered.
