Default led h/l's

my friend has a '12 streetglide that he just bought the h d led
headlight setup for it. only for looks cause like me, he will never be
out at night. i assume their is nothing like this available for the
cross bikes. just the hid setups? the only reason to even do the hid would be more visibility to be seen anyway for me. wife and i just
dont tempt fate after dark. thanks for any help.

Got mine from here http://www.victoryhid.com/

They work great and are a relatively easy plug-n-play install.

The first thing you'll notice running HIDs during dailylight is cagers fixing their mirrors, or squinting in them to see what's behind them. You'll also notice cars moving to the side to make room for you. Not all cagers are ignorant, some really cannot see the dim stock headlight on a motorcycle.

Please add your bike's year and model to your signature. Here's why.

Blest with victory and peace, may the heav'n rescued land
Praise the Power that hath made and preserved us a nation.
Then conquer we must, when our cause it is just,
And this be our motto: "In God is our trust."
And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave
O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!

Hard to compaire the cost of LED to HID in my opinion.
A couple of my buds have the HD LED head light in their RG's and one has his RG converted to HID, very simular to the Vic conversation. The LED's are more visible than the HID conversation on the HD's.
I can tell this because they are usually following me, are they worth the 700 bones for a RG, I think not. Not a $600 improvement over the HID. But for the "cool factor", thats a matter of taste and disposible income. IMHO

The 2014 Mercedes S Class is going only with LEDs:

...an arsenal of almost 500 LEDS that light the road, the cabin, the instruments, the trunk and the under-hood area. A dazzling 56 shine a path down the road. Another 39 illuminate the car's tail. And no fewer than 300 LEDs light up the interior.

Wave of the future, I guess.

Cheers,
