Re:LED Headlight conversion 7 Months, 2 Weeks ago  
Wow that is fantastic! I've had numerous rides at night where I can barely see what road imperfections are ahead. I live in Southern California and some of the roads are in horrible repair, like on the 405 freeway near Clark, there is a 4" slot about 3-4' long between the lanes where I know some biker is going to go down if you go into it with one of your wheels. And yet we pay about $1.00 in taxes PER GALLON supposedly for road repair to CalTrans. So these lights would be a big help. Thanks Mrdon glad you didn't hit the deer.

Kuryakyn literally repackages the Trucklite LED headlights & spotlights. Kury doesn't make their own LED products.

Trucklite makes some of their lights, others are the same Chinese LED 'Daymaker' headlights you can buy all day on eBay for well under $100.

Buy a $100 sticker with your ligts if you like, almost all of them come from China/Taiwan anyway.

When I bought my Tucklite it was the only one I could find with a DOT SAE rating on the lens,I think that's a good thing.

Re:LED Headlight conversion 7 Months, 2 Weeks ago  
If I knew I was going to keep my Roadie for another couple years, I would try the trucklite. I ride for hours on end thru rural MI at night all summer. I've got Kury driving lights (worthless except for looks) with a LED bulb in an Adjure clear lens. Total nonsense. Tried HID and that was really no better than the LED, except for the minor inconvenience of the ballast going out (more than once) while trying to ride home at night That's when I really discovered the Kury driving lights were worthless as crap.

When I rode my R1 on the street still, the stock halogen bulbs (there are 2 of them) beat the crap out of anything I ever put on the Roadie. HID, LED, driving lights (halogen and LED on both Roadies), you name it, I tried it (except for the trucklite). The low beams on my stock R1 lights were about twice as good as the best setup I ever had on my Roadies.

Another reason the F6B might be my next bike I rode Blueverclears in the dark assed smokey mountains for a little bit and that's the deal right there. You just can't beat multiple real headlights with a single light.
