Law enforcement would seem to disagree.

Actually got pulled over 30 min after installing. Only allowed to run 4 at a time in Tx.

Meh. Paint with broad strokes much? I'm not interested in running the lights in traffic. I live in deer country and get home from work after dark relatively often. I can see a reason for that much light. Ever own a bike over 20 hp? Why? LEO's frown on speeding, too...

Four PIA's and LED's is overkill, pardner, no matter how hard you try to make your case. I live in deer country too and MORE light is not going to save your ass if one decides to step out in front of you suddenly like they tend to do. Besides that...think of everyone else on the road that has to deal with that much candlepower in their eyes. I know I sure as hell don't want that bike coming at me in the opposite lane when I am driving home at night with my kids in the car.

Nuff said...move along now. Back to pictures of GS/A's please.

All I'm saying is if a rider here wants a couple of extra lights on his bike, let him post pics of them without criticism.

Oh, and dood: You ride a $20,000+ BMW with an $800 special edition paint job, and according to your sig, you want us to know it's not your only bike. You may not be the best guy to preach an internet sermon on overkill.



Back to the pics.

Hmmmm, a rider criticizing another rider for having multiple bikes. Now that's a new one!

Sadly, it was only a matter of time.

If you can't live with criticism and different opinions stay at home, unplug the phone and internet and keep for yourself.

Did you dump it on the right side on the muddy ride? Awfully muddy pannier and valve cover there!

Probably time to let the thread get back on track, no? I made a poor attempt at a point. I PERSONALLY own an '09 GSA with custom paint, which is only one page back in this very thread, for-the-lova-pete, and I normally own more than one bike, too.

Sheesh.

I apologized to oneydee first thing this morning for making the remark, and I now apologize to anyone else who misunderstood it, got their feelings hurt, or is continuing to get their feelings hurt, or something.

Let's see some more GS pics.
