lighting ideas

So with the leds in the new saddlebags I figured I migth as well change the front turn signals also. Maybe even the headlight. Has anyone done them to LEDs or HID headlight? I would like to see some pictures to help decide. Anyone? I saw a bike onetime with drag bars and the headlight was on it, I think it had the dakota digital gauges too but it was not a 750. I thought that might be a cool look to update. Anyone have thoughts?

Most people seem disappointed with the LED replacements that take the place of the regular bulb. They're not as bright as they hoped they'd be.

The main problem (at the moment) with the HID light option is price--most decent HID light kits that I've seen run into $400-500 (or more) for just one light (but that's probably all the HID light you'd need)....

Any LED lights we've seen thus far are not really bright enough for head lamp use.

LEDs (for now, anyway) are best for being seen....rather than to see. Properly designed and configured, they're great for marker lights, brake lights, or turn signals.
