So Ponder this: At night, on high, you cant look directly at my lower fork lights they're so bright (thats why there dimable and wired into the hi/lo switch). The big sister to my little lights, has 3 times the element power of mine.

The Krista is a 36 watt light running at +2500 lumens... look at the BMW R2100 (top right) below...

That yahoo, mounted 4 of the these to his bike! He's got 10,000+ lumen worth of aux light! His bike sees that as 140 watt draw... so not bad considering, but even I think thats excessive...

At 140 watts he is actually taking an amount of power away from his engine.

Wonder if it affects his mileage....lmao.....

Scawein's projected light will come from 2 $100 flashlights, and mine are in the $400 rent district.[/QUOTE]

My lights were $48, but it was your setup that made me want to add driving lights.

So the yellow LED's are wired.

I will test some to see if they are bright enough, almost think they might not be, but I am not done yet.

More to follow:

I am still at it, been a tough week and now an even tougher day for the country.

I am saddened and wish the best for all of us.
