question: for night driving is it better to have fog lights (for wide view) or driving lights (for longer lighted road area) ?
I had both on my LT, Hella Micro DE fog lights under the chin for close in and wide light pattern, helped a lot in residential and town riding. No help at all on the highway, so I had HID Driving lights under the mirrors which gave me great long distance throw down the highways at night. On my long distance rides at night the HID driving lights were a HUGE help, far more so than the fog lights. The fog lights were on all the time, so gave a triangular pattern to help what some call "conspicuity".
