Front lights needed

I want to add some front lights to my 09 DR but need some help. From what little I know I do know I need low voltage ones. I see ADV Monster and Rigid Industries offer some nice ones but can anyone offer any suggestions on flood lights?

I have the Denali LED lights from Twisted Throttle. ProCycle sells the same ones, called Solstice, for a bit less money, but they don't include extra wiring. I LOVE these lights. They're 10W each and are so good they almost make the headlight unnecessary. Highly recommended, just not cheap.

Rob,
How do you have them set up, do you have the option of running just one light if you choose, and what kind of switch do you have to run them? Is there a toggle on the back of each one?

Thanks

No, but if extra lighting for safety is what you're after, creating 'driving lights' so that the turn signals light up when not being used as turn signals is on my radar.

I haven't finished it yet, but I ordered the LED strips from ebay to install them in my DR650's turn signals.

I got the idea from this guy and his pictures on the Vulcan forums:

The kit I got had the usual wiring harness with a switch and relay, so they run like any aux lights would on a car or whatever. I see no reason why you couldn't wire it up to run one light at a time if you wanted.

Waiting on UPS to bring my latest goodies from Jesse; Intiminators, TM40, oversize header, to finish the farklefest of the last year... I know, it's a sickness.

Need some risers and then ride.

Less than $1k Suspension ?

For less than $1k, is there anything better than Racetech emulators and springs up front and Racetech shock shaft assembly and spring in the rear? This is for a Baja trip ~2k miles (mas o menos).
