I ended up wiring them to my high beam to eliminate the need for a switch. I tried to take some pictures of the light pattern, but my camera is about useless in the dark...
These lights throw more of a flood pattern than spot, but wow... The near useless high beam HID light on my dr650 has now turned into a retina searing flood light (for those that try and stare into them). These things have no problem at all lighting up both sides of the road for a pretty good distance. Should there be any kind of animal next to the road, you should have no problem seeing them with plenty of time to slow down. I love these things!
