I would gladly have something like that laser cut, if guys don't want to do it themselves.

I haven't ridden at night with them, yet. During daylight everybody seems to see me;-) that is, I haven't been run over. I've had a few cagers pull over with confused looks...I wave politely and mosey on.
As far as laser cutting, I imagine the different bike configurations out there might make it challenging.

Thanks
any mount like that would be bike specific, we have them for the gs800, but we should cover my favorite bike, all 950/990s are the same on the lower triple.
personally I don't need it

Ryder - that is a bike I'd hate to have coming towards me at night, but would love to follow. Those lights are outrageous - LEDs and not HIDs right?

I like what you've done with the Adventure....

Your tool tube - I did the same on my Adventure, but instead of making a lower bracket like yours I just used another exhaust clamp and mounted in JB Weld at the front of the sub-frame. It resulted in some additional space for long tyre levers.

Thanks, Im really liking having a proper weight bias.
Those are 50 watt single emitter LEDs, To say they are powerful is an understatement. I like to ride a bit at night They are way overkill, but they'll work great at the 24 hr races.
Im on the fence on the tool tube, its kind of heavy, I am thinking of making something similar with fiberglass.

Sorry for the highjack, Im really interested in seeing everyone's light mounts.

I would be very interested! When would they be available and how much would they cost for a 2010 990 Adventure?
