Searching for 4 Inch driving lights

Does anyone know where to buy 4 Inch (halogen, no HID) driving lights wich i can mount on my Wunderlich crash bar? (1150GSA)
If possible with a black housing.

Saeng/ta

I have SAENG/TA on my 1100, mounted on my Touratech crash bars. I bought the spots. They put out good, clean light. Just reach down with your hand and adjust as needed. Keep them pointed more down in traffic. If out in a rural area where there are lots of deer and its very dark, I just pull them up. Have them mounted on inside of bars so they dont get broke if the bike gets dropped. Love em'

Thats what I have in mine. No need for expensive bars to mount, just get the PIAA universal mounts. Just make sure you select the beam pattern of light that matches your riding best.

What do you have against HID driving lights?

Offroaders like 'em cause there are no filaments to break during vibration, they draw less current and have superior lumen output to 55 watt halogens and their light output doesn't deteriorate with age.

Get some good parabolic reflector style HIDs and light up Bambi at night from 1000 feet.

Love my Clearwater Krista lights. They are as advertised. Couldn't be more impressed. What makes the deal is the dimmer switch that takes them from low to full bright when the brights or horn are actuated.

Plus, they will melt the eyeballs of some evil cager in full bright!

But, PIAA's a lot less expensive . . . 510's!

Perhaps I'm mis-remembering but wasn't there a thread not too long ago about someone getting a ticket in Austria (?) for having HIDs?

Don't reckon HIDs are a good idea in the main lights, but as auxilliary they are ace. I have isolator switches on both sets so that if they are annoying other drivers I can switch 'em of. Never needed to though, the Micro DEs have a very sharp cutoff. The oval FF50s have a range better measured in miles. Four inch halogen dinner plates are a bit yesterday aren't they?

With simple halogen bulbs that aren't blinding to oncoming traffic during the daytime, they make you very visible. Less likely to have people pull in front of you.
I could care less what people think of the style, as long as they aren't pulling in front of me. If I wanted a fashion statement I would ride a chromium cruiser.

Why not LEDs?

ie: Baja Squandron lights or Rigid D2 LED lights.
