I am a bit surprised, Shows what I know We aim to please, so Rounds are available now.
I like the squares on the crash bars of a 990 and they look great mounted near the headlights of a GS, IMO almost factory.

Used the PIAA bar mounts mounted to the top of the crash bars.... very adjustable and solid.

The squares look bloated to me, but the round look lean and mean.

I never thought of using that mount in the vertical position. Great job!!
The Piaa mounts are the same techmounts available on our site, all quality stuff.

i uglified my duc

So sorry for the long delay. Here are some pics of the lights mounted on my fugly duc. I still need to find a time and place to get night time shots and the beam.






Apologize for the blur of a mess, was trying to blur the plates and got carried away...

These shots are with the dimmer relay on at 50% power. It's noticeable during the daytime but not blinding. I still need to find a time and place to get night time shots and light output. If you look at the 2nd pic you can notice the light pattern slightly different as I have one aimed higher and the other lower for distance/fill. Still need to optimize it

Quite a bit brighter than factory
Since these are new, If you would like to swap the squares for the rounds we can do that.
I aim to please

Just ordered a kit to fit on my 1200 GS LC. I also think the round version looks better.

Will put some pictures up when I have received them (soon I hope )

Which kit did you order? (i.e. 10 vs 20 degree, or one of each; single vs dual)

Also, interested to see how these lights compare to the Rigid D2's.

I ordered the 10 degree lights. I have the LED headlight on my bike and it does a good job at close range

Ha, thanks for the kind offer! I think I've hassled you enough for all your support (you guys won't believe how many calls Darryl had to take from me while I was installing as I'm electrically inept).

I may order a single round one at 60 degrees in the future as I'm still having some issues finding an optimal distance/fill. Got any suggestions where I might mount that on my bike?

The D2s are nice lights, but a far cry from the distance that the Long Range units provide.
I would love to post some photos, But....

Find a place with a wall like the side of a building or something. Get back about 100 ft and use the wall to see exactly where your lights are aiming. Use the 20 towards the bottom(fill) and the 10 for the distance.
You have far more light than stock and should be able to get a really good pattern. I wouldn't think you would need anymore. Of course I'm happy to set you up with another light, but I dont want to see you spend more than you need to.
Mounting another below the current two might work?

On another note we set your bike up to operate with no switches other than stock, How did that all work out?
