They'll never go back to incandescent.
Check with our supporting vendor, XenonDepot
, they'll hook you up.
+1 if you want to see out better than the stock lighting..
HID is the first thing to try ... most of the rest increase your visibility,but that too has limits.
My feelings though on being seen:
I think that a big part of the visibility problem / concern on a motorcycle is not that the other motorist doesn’t see the motorcycle; it’s that he doesn’t recognize it and take action in time.
What I mean buy this is that the eye does physically “see” the motorcycle, The picture is on the brain. His brain just doesn’t recognize it in time to take action either way. Action being to not pull out or over or action to stop. All of the lights in the world won’t make much of a difference.
It is the same as someone in a car driving into a train. “How can that happen?” The train is so big and so loud!
The motorist brain did “see” the train. It just wasn’t recognized in time to take action. It was not expected so “it was not there.”
My point is that no matter how many lights you add to your bike, YOU have to be the one to be ready to take the action. Don’t expect the other motorist to avoid you or stop for your lights.
