Default Bright H11 high beam bulb ideas?

Guys,

I have the HID in my XC for low beam but would like a better/whiter light for when using high beam on deserted roads for night driving. I also want to "cheat" with adjustment my HID low beam up a little higher as I would like a little more light for low beam driving. And NO, I can't afford a 2nd HID.

With regards to the HIGH BEAM...........I've so far spotted one anti-vibration H11 from PIAA Item # 70555. It is supposed to be an anti vibration bulb. Trouble is I've never had good life from PIAA even in my truck over the years so I don't trust them!

Does anyone know of any brands / part numbers that are anti vibration made specifically for motorcycles that will give good white light?

Thanks

Thanks another guy on ***.com emailed me this link. Long story but I used to have a 2010 XC and had lots of radio reception problems when trying to use a low price kit in there.

So for my 2012, I bought the factory HID kit. Expesive but I've had no radio reception problems.

So for now, I'd just like to get a better/brighter/whiter high beam bulb in there.

WRXMIKE, let's not high jack this thread, since zork52 is looking for something else here. I've posted an answer to your question here: https://www.victoryforums.com/showthread.php?t=11811.
