Does DennisB export his lightbars to Belgium? Sounds like they may need some driving lights.

I think it's a case of 'wait and see'; since 1st. January this year it's been the policy to switch off sections of lights at a certain o'clock, very disconcerting if one happens to be riding or driving along that bit at the time!

In the UK, many stretches of motorway are unlit whilst at junctions the lights remain on - in fact it's the same here.
The main problem for me is that the road-markings are somewhat poor. At least in the UK the m-ways are clearly marked with cats'-eyes.

I quite regulary travel from Calais, the French Channel port, up to my home in Belgium in both light and dark.
Much of the French m-way is unlit and the French drivers go very fast which can be very unnerving.

When the LED driving lights I want are back in stock I shall 'do the deed'.

I am curious why the Model 30 versus the Model 44 ( http://stores.intuitwebsites.com/hstrial-QualiRegResou/-strse-2/Black-Model-44-LED/Detail.bok )?

From the pictures from http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=607184 the Model 30 provides a very narrow beam with very little peripheral lighting. For example Post number #1151.

Indeed but I hope to use Dennis's front connector and I think a pair of Model 44 lights draw too much current for that wiring on the Silverwing. (Could be wrong, of course)

I want also a light which will pick up the motorway barriers on the nearside rather than light up the road in front.

The paring of the Model 30 and Model 44 LED lights could be ideal.

If can run your own wiring you could use DennisB's rear Perfect Connector, then you could mount Model 44 on the top of the DennisB light bar and Model 30 ( turn on-off with highbeam ) on the bottom of the light bar slightly closer ... with spare power for other things Cool

Thanks, Bill; I appreciate your suggestions.
It's very important that the extra lights have a fairly narrow beam - the roads I need them for are straight and flat so dazzling on-coming traffic is all too easy.
I'm not certain whether it's safe to piggy-back two Perfect Connectors - I already have one powering my Admore Light Bar.
