I already have HID headlights which uses less watts after the bulbs have been fully illuminated and I can see the light flicker a little while stopped. I was originally investigating secondary HID lights, but I was concerned with the idle output from the stator.
I wanted an LED driving light ... not just a visible light for oncoming traffic. A lot of the LED lights do not provide nighttime comparisons of their LED lights and regular lights. These Martin LED ( http://martin-led.com/beam-shots.html ) look very impressive. **PLEASE NOTE** their website did not fully load the images at first ... if you keep hitting the buttons eventually all the images loaded.
I will do more of an internet search on the Martin LED lights tomorrow ... but if I could make the power variable with a water proof rheostate and full on high beams these lights might be perfect.

Great find Bill! I have been looking for LED fogs that actually "throw light". I haven't found many and after reading the fine print they are made of plastic. I have had a set of (what are advertised as) led fogs for two years they only throw light 2' in front of the bike but work well as daytime running lights.
I may have to put these on the list of needed items.
