I certainly understand the allure of less expensive products, Thats why harbor freight is in business. Like tools, sometimes the less expensive (cheaper)product will get you by. In most cases your better off spending slightly more the first time.
I cant and wont give an examples here, but I'm sure many can relate.
I hope the lights work well for you.
"Slightly more" is where I'm struggling. When I start talking $350/unit, I start to grab my wallet. Even the cheap LEDs are great for increasing visibility.

OTOH, I bought a DRZ and KLR, learned their shortcomings, and have upgraded to KTMs.
