Question High power LED auxilary lights?

Saw a XC this week with these bright white LED spot lights mounted on the crash bars. Looked awesome and made him much more visible to oncoming traffic. Do want on my King Pin!

Anyone know what these are, where to find them. They were fully chrome housings, tear drop shaped and looked like they belonged on the crash bars!

Can't find anything like this online. Looks like high end LED driving lights are $300 or more per set!

They're not chrome, but I bought two of these for $17.65 each.

I second the motion....
I have a pair of Clearwater Darla high power LED road lights--2,000 lumens (each) of conspicuity and illumination love. They are not cheap, by any means, but they are very high tech, exceedingly well made and have features others don't. Besides, my life is worth a lot more than those lights cost.
The thing that attracted me to Clearwater lights is they are wired in to BOTH high and low beams. To prevent dazzling oncoming traffic, there is a handlebar mounted controller that adjusts the brightness when on low beam. When high beam is selected, the lights go to 100%.
I have never liked riding at night, but now, with the Darlas and CrossRoad's HID in my high beam, I volunteer for night rides. Here's a link to what I think are the best road lights....

Those Clearwater lights look pretty cool but I'm hesitant to bolt a $300 part on my bike that could be stolen if the thief has an Allen wrench and 30 seconds alone with my bike.

HELP! The paranoids are after me! Where do you live that that's gonna happen? If you are that concerned, use security bolts.

Not worried about it parked in my garage more like when I'm out traveling parking in random hotel parking lots and such. There is a fine line between paranoia and wanting to secure my equipment from theft that I walk.

All said the price and risk of theft is not enough to deter me from the purchase. This is an excellent safety improvement.

A freind of mine put these on down at the chin guard. He runs them at 30% in daylight and they are super bright. At $90 each they are a great deal.

Don't worry about it. They can steal the whole bkie with a safety pin and 30 seconds, with 15-20 seconds to spare.
