Re: Yellow vs White

I have Clearwater Darlas with the yellow lens covers on my RT and my riding buddies say they really stand out more than white lights. I have them set on next to lowest setting. They are mounted on the forks.

Re: Yellow vs White

I have yellow (amber) motolights. Of course it does not matter what color you are running if you get blind sided as I did on my LT.

I presently run Clearwater lights mounted on Motolights/calipers. I use ONE amber lens, and ONE clear lens in the daytime. On several rides with others last year, they all remarked that the difference really stood out. I'll do anything to attract attention to those coming at me. When I ride at night, the amber cover comes off (2 seconds), and I have great 'down the road' visibility.

I ran Motolights for years, and only switched to Clearwater to see further down the road
