One thing you may want to consider...

Please don't take this the wrong way, because I think you did a great job with the lights and brackets. However, for safety purposes I believe any auxiliary lights - especially ones that might be used during the day - should be farther away from the turn signals.

A buddy of mine had a pair of lights mounted similarly on his 2001 Dakar and whenever I'd ride with him I could never see his turn signals flashing because the nearby auxiliary lights overpowered them. I'm not sure what the effect would be at night because I don't think we ever rode together after dark.

Personally, if I were to put more lights on I'd mount them lower and away from the turn indicators. I'm admittedly a little over cautious after being hit by an SUV while stopped with turn signal on waiting for traffic.
