I hope I have talked to most of you.

I would like some feedback from those who might be watching this thread.

Are the options clear and understandable?

Is it tough to make a choice as to what beam pattern might work for you?

Are we offering too many options?

Is there something you would like to see, that has not been covered?

Thank You!!
I think your website is a little hard to navigate which makes it appear there are too many options...just my 2 cents. I have been on your site many times and have read this thread and it still seems hard to choose because it's just not an easy site to make sure you are covering all your bases.

We got to view them in a desert terrain out to about 400+ feet and the light was very good. I can see these being a good addition to any desert racer's repertoire of lights.

Thank You

It sounds like you guys had a great time in DV.

Darryl, as someone who ordered thru you I found the website extremely confusing. For example I had to assume 'MC' stood for motorcycle. I don't think I could have ordered it without calling you. I think it would be bets if you found a website designer to clean up the formatting, colors. 2 sites that I think are very clean and well presented are: http://aeroprecisionusa.com/ and sportbiketrackgear.com.

Granted one of them isn't a motorcycle dealer but I just wanted to give you some ideas. Additionally, posting up real life pictures of the lights in action would do very well in convincing potential customers. Speaking of which I will definitely get up some of my pics this weekend.

Thanks for the feedback.. its very much appreciated.
Unfortunately that website cost us a bucket of cash

This latest rendition obviously needs some work. We will get someone on it ASAP.

Thanks, I really do appreciate the critique and comments.

Time to go racing.. We will be out of contact until Monday Night

The 10W long range really do put out a decent light for the wattage and the range is well over 500'.

The light bar basically floods the area out in front of the bike to 100+'

For my application which is more slow speed technical riding I found the flood effect I get from the light bar is much better suited. If I were looking for a more high speed application where range was needed to prevent myself for overriding my lights then the long range would be the ticket.

With that said either product is very well suited to its intended task and the quality of the light output is superior to the lesser brand tested.

Below are two pictures just for reference. The wall in the back yard is 75' from the lights. All pictures were taken from same spot and the lights were also mounted in the same location as well.

10W single LED





Light Bar 8" long





This is what the ANZO light put out. A lot more yellow and dim and that is with 6 LEDS in their light.




That flood light IS the sun. You scare the neighbors? I've seen less light from a helicopter spot! WOW!

Same light different shape

For those that like things spherical, we will start offering a round Long Range light in the next few days.
Same pricing, same light,New shape.

Finally got them on

I had the Monster lights also.....moved them down and added the Cyclops 10W long range. Set up each set on seperate switch. WOW! what a great combo. The Monsters fill and the Cyclops reach out for distance. Don't know what else I could do to improve this setup. Might even stir up a few UFO sighting 911 calls!
BTW....had a local fab shop build new mounts for the Monsters. No more bending and breaking mounts!

Round version

Must say the round version does look nice. What is the size (in all dimensions) of this light?

My "problem" is where to attach it on the bike (KTM SMT 990, 2013 just received this morning) I do not want it like the GS as posted above. My wish would be between the legs of the front wheel, almost next to the radiator. However there is not much room, since I do not want to block the radiator too much. Besides the light need to be much further on the road, not on her front legs...

Conrads on the new Bike!!
The light is a 3.5 inch Dia and approx 3.5 inches long, the mount can be turned around to be at the back or middle section of the light.
Two lights will fit in between the fork legs.
Rounds are available now threw PM or phone call. They should be on the site by early next week.
