Without spending a small fortune, any suggestions on some cool looking foglights for my 05 1200LT I just picked up?
My bikes have cheap driving lights from walmart or local autoparts store.timotimo said:Without spending a small fortune, any suggestions on some cool looking foglights for my 05 1200LT I just picked up?

Just me, but I would save your $$ for PIAAs. You can get them online for less than $200, and the quality is outstanding. I will take function over "cool looking" any day. Safety should be the first priority, always. Also, get the HID kit for the headlight... Your lights are your best friend at night- or your worst enemy.timotimo said:Without spending a small fortune, any suggestions on some cool looking foglights for my 05 1200LT I just picked up?
Do you remember which model you pruchased or did they make up something special for you?Sit said:I got my lights from this place,
Comes with lights and mounts that fit down on the fender mounting tab. Moves them away from the headlight so you get a nice triangle light affect that others hopefully will notice. There is not a kit listed for the LT, but if you ask them they can tell you which kit fits. I had a set of Wally world lights on another bike but the beam was sealed and there was no way to change the bulb when it blew. These bulbs you can change out.

Thanks for the good advice. Let me ask you this; With my LT fully loaded (not as loaded as yours is in the picture) and my wife on back, having the stock rear shock set to the max weight adjustment, while cornering, I find that I scrape the (fully up) centerstand or sidestand or maybe even the shift lever much easier than such a sporty looking bike should be expected to. Do you have any advice? Ohlins? Other adjustment? Grind off portions of the center stand? Other Mod? Just take all turns slower? Greg.CharlieVT said:Greg,
here's what I've figured out, not being a html guy or anything:
When posting, below the "Submit Reply, Preview Post, Spell Check", scroll down to see "Additional options". There you'll see "Manage Attachments".
By clicking on Manage Attachments, you can browse your own computer's files for the pic you want. It is good to reduce image file size of the pics before uploading; reducing the file size makes 'em upload faster and if they're too big, they won't go. I use Microsoft Office Picture Manager "Compress" file option.
That'll get you to the point where the images are attached to your post at the bottom, and clickable for a larger view.
To imbed images in the text, the picture has to be on the server or on the net somewhere and then the url of that pic pasted between:
What I do is first attach a pic to my post. Then if I want to imbed the pic within the text I'll click on the pic to get the url of the pic, then edit the post and cut 'n paste the url into the text of the post.
