Ever since switching to HIDs I have had more cars/trucks pull over and let me pass (when doing the speed limit) and this is on low beam....

they do look nice on your vic...but from a pure function stand point the hid's are amazing

45caldan: your set-up looks effective. Nice job! I applaud anyone making an effort to improve their visibility/safety on their ride. We are invisible to most of the cagers out there, so we need a fighting chance to win the battle on the road.

I decided on the clearwater LED's for my XC and they have been worth every penny. Like 9SF, I've had a number of four-wheelers move over and let me pass, during the day. I have the dimmer control rotated to the max-level during the day. I had a woman wave me over at a stop sign, she said, "I can't drive with you back there with those lights." I told her I have extra lighting to keep me visible during the day. She said, Yeah, I know, be careful. Before I installed CR's low-beam HID bulb, I always rode with the high-beam, but now I don't need to.

When I commute to work in the early morning, I've had a few cagers flash their high-beams at me. It's funny to me, because the majority of those drivers have vehicles that have their fancy array of LED's below their main bulb. Seems those drivers are very sensitive types.

I had the OEM HID low beam and my PIAA halogen driving lights illuminated and still the cager got me. My XR was a total loss and I received some pretty significant injuries. (Nothing compared to cornfedboy). I am currently looking for a replacement set of driving lights for my AG XC and yours are quite appealing. So are the Clearwater LED's. I wish I could make up my mind. Thanks for posting the pics.

2013 AG-XC:
Debadged, Gustafsson +2 Euro Flip
Ma Vic (Black Tri-Ovals/S1 Package, pull backs, HID,
heated seat, bag bars, shorty antennae)
Ness (derby covers, Rad III mirrors)
Avon heated grips, Wolo Bad Boy air horn
RICZ's LD PL8 bracket and lotsa blacked out stuff
GOODY'S fork mounted lowers (3M'd)
Bag graphics & inner fairing, Bad Boys Design Peoria, AZ. Sena & XM in the saddlebag

Artificial intelligence is absolutely 100% NO MATCH...............for natural stupidity!

I hear you...no magic bullet here to keep the shiny side up. Clearwater was offering a Forum members discount when I purchased in 2011. Just saw an AG XC in a group of other riders today; really stood out in a sea of also-ran's.
