Where Should I Mount Driving Lights?
Guys and Gals...I need some help trying to decide where to mount some lights.
My primary goal is to increase my visibility to cagers during the day and night. I dislike the look of driving lights hanging anywhere off the front of the bike as I feel it really detracts from the bikes sex appeal. But in the name of safety, I'm forging ahead and adding gaudy rally lights to a street driven Ferrari, so to speak.
Clearwater Lights has their Darlas (2" model) on sale which come standard with fender mounting brackets. For a few more bucks I can get a mirror bracket setup that mounts them under the mirrors. I have no desire go with any larger lights in the future as I don't ride roads out west where I need longer penetrating lights for higher speeds.
Is there a benefit to mounting lights one way or the other for the purpose of becoming more visible to the vehicles in front of me? At night on a dark road with the lights on full power, do the lights mounted low on the fender or high under the mirrors make any noticeable difference with what you're able to see ahead of you?
I can't wait to hear your thoughts and advice on the matter.
Man these things can really fly
