Thanks Cooter69 for posting those. That is exactly what I needed to see.

Nice to see it set up on the ST1100. A great choice of bike. We are really out numbered here.

Any problem with the oncoming traffic being blinded?

Riding with the low beam + led I get flashed no more than with the silverstars alone while riding in the hills. Nobody cared in town where there is more light around

Yep. I plan on adding some spots to the tip over wings since I don't run hiway blades. The mount the light comes with would be pefect for this.

The floods do have a sharp drop off you can see in the pics......
I'm comfrotable doing 55 in the hills with this. For the hiway I would like a little more long range light. This is no different than most aftermarket floods

I've also thought of mounting them to the tip over wings on my '01 ST1100, but wouldn't that make the lights vulnerable?

Hey another ST1100, wooohooo.

I have a one LED light on the tip over wing, mounted on the bottom. I have the highway blades.

12,000 miles so far and no trouble, except a big bug can block that one eyed LED.

I don't know if I would hang them off the bottom I think I might knock them off I touch pegs hit boots often enough that this would be an issue. The top of the wing would not be any more of an issue than my current mount. You would have to bend the wings in order to damage the lights. At that point the 100 bucks for the light would be second to breaking the plastics and replacing the color matched bags....

You definitely have that right on the color-matched bags. I do like the idea of mounting them on the top side of the tip-over wings. I'll have to look at that closely tonight. I have some used tipover wing covers I could experiment with.

I like these a lot. I've been needing a pair of auxiliary driving lights for the ST1100 for a long time, but haven't found the right ones yet. I think I'll go convince the wife tonight that I need a pair of these flood beams and then I can wire them up to the ST. I'll do a low fork mount for them, though, because I want to be able to leave them on with oncoming traffic.

Let's say I wanted to run these in such a manner that they would be 100% bright with the high beams on and 50% bright with the low beams on. Could I use a standard Bosch relay to power them, with pin 87 going directly to the lights, and pin 87a going through a PWM and then to the lights. When the high beam wire activates the relay, it would power through pin 87, and when the high beam wire is not powered, the relay would be not activated, and power should go through pin 87a. Is this correct? Is that a reasonable way to dim these lights at the same time I dip my headlight?

Here's a few pics of these lights mounted on my DL 1000

I bought a toggle switch from the auto parts store that lights up when their on.
