While you are looking at LED lighting, you might want to look at the other
stuff that is available at Advance Auto and I'm sure other places as well.
[I have no connection with Advance Auto so am not spamming the group!] There
"Drag Lights" etc. that are not approved for highway use. What that means to
me is that they must be "brighter than hell!" What that also means to me is;
"If they are brighter than hell, I must NEED THEM!" I don't NEED to hit a
deer at even moderate speed! Check them out and report back. I did! (;-)

Thanks for the update Ed.
Now that you did not melt down your electrical system, I will also try it.
Funny that your wife mentioned the night vision thing. I would not have
thought of that either. Gotta love our women...

BBBB and they work great! My original intention was to mount them on the
mirrors but they were a little too big to fit there and I was also afraid
that they might blind my night vision by being too bright. [Actually it was
my wife's concern because I wasn't bright enough to think of it.] I wound up
mounting them on the flat space of the fairing at right angles to the edge.
This allowed me to run the wires under the tank and fairing back to the
taillight wires. I hooked the positive wire to each positive blinker light
and grounded the negative wire with the rest of the grounded wires. The
blinker blinks at the same rate whether they are hooked up or not so I don't
feel I'm overloading the circuit at all. It is obvious, day or night, that
your blinkers are on if you forget to cancel them.
