Check out sylvania silverstar ultra bulbs , had a set in my old car and they were a heck of alot better than stock. I think Wach runs em in his Roadglide, hopefully he'll chime in on the brightness.

Big discussion going on in "Electrical" on this topic now. Seems to be a very common complaint.

i second the sylvania ultra bulb. i've had one in my '09 t/g for about 4 months great lighting & no elec. issues i only use it on low beam for 2 reasons
'1 low beam is great lighting. &
2. i'm trying to cut down on the draw on the stator.
3. i don't uuse the passing lights much, may decide to go with LED'S .BUT NOT FOR THE HEADLIGHT, DON'T LIKE THE BEAM PATTERN.
