I ride My Street Glide 5 to 6 days a week and most days I'm not getting home until after dark. I would like to upgrade my headlight
with more than just an aftermarket bulb and noticed HD is offering an
LED replacement to the tune of $400++. Was looking for some feedback from anyone who may have made the upgrade, before
spending this kind of dough.
I have a set on my Road Glide, I found them on the web, I cannot find that site now, but I did find one that has the same lighting system I have. Custom made for whatever you drive.
I have mine set for the HID on low beam, I like to be seen. Works great.
Try this link: Electra Glide HID Lights
I paid 200 for mine, and what a difference, I will never use the stock lights again. Amazing.
I had a guy approach me coming head on last week at night. The bike had a HID headlight and it was so bright that I had a hard time seeing the road. I was in my SUV and slowed way down as he passed. By the time he passed I was using trying to only look at him out of the corner of my eye to avoid being blinded by the headlamp. I don't think that I had ever seen anything that bright on a car or a motorcycle.
In my opinion, that light was a threat not only to other drivers who could be temporarily blinded but also the rider who just might find a car with a driver who cannot see cross into his lane.
