Are they touratech headlights? I saw your photospread on lights (very good) how do they compare to the euro lights for spread / output?

Cheers

Looks awesome! I wonder with the safari's and crash tanks if you are wider than a GS's cylinders?

Yes, that is the Touratech headlight assembly. Haven't had the chance to check in the dark yet (only had it running again Thursday evening). I'll see later if I can setup in a similar position to how I did the Euro tests to compare. The TT high is a pencil beam though. Might not work out the same. Suppose I'll throw in the D2s for giggles as well.

Thanks! It certainly doesn't feel as wide as the GS (I recently rented one for a few days while in Vegas). It is now 28" at its widest point.

Tip: When you ride with your buddies who aren't members of the 10G club... leave one of your tanks at home so that they don't feel so capacity-challenged.
