Advice on lights needed

Bike: 2012 Triumph Tiger 800 XC
Me: 54 and eyesight getting worse every day it seems
Need: Lights for occasional night riding.
Don't think I need a dimmer because I'm thinking the lights will be either on when needed and off only when due to oncoming traffic.
What do you recommend as far as lights, harness and switching?

Thank you for asking, sounds like your eyes are playing the same game mine are. I don't bounce to well anymore either.

I honestly feel the original Long Range LEDs are very hard to beat for what you have described, They are by far the best value.
It sounds like you'll be fine with no dimming and just need the basic setup. the Motorcycle harness with the handle bar mounted switch. I think its a good idea to keep your leds off the high beam circuit, I know others feel differently, but IMO its the only way to go.
I would recommend the 10 degree version in whatever shape you want, round or square.

Thanks Kevin, the Darryl@cyclopsmotorsports email is being redirected to reflect the name change we made a year or so ago.
Sounds like the redirection needs a reboot.
Pm coming your way..

I'm a LED aux light fiend. I'm interested in adding some lights to my street bike, a 2013 BMW K1600 GTL. It already has some aux lights down low on the fairing and the headlight is decent. I want to add some lights on the mirror mounts, up high for long range deer melting mode. Do you have any mounts that would work for this application? Clearwater sells nice lights and mounts for this purpose but damn they want a lot of money for them! How about the CanBus issue?

I plan on adding a fuse block, or a PDM60 to run some stuff. I'd think the round 10W versions would be the way to go.

OK, now it's done. Bought a set of long range extreme, with dimmer and all. If Santa is having trouble with finding Denmark, he's wellcome to open the package and borrow them for the ride.

You would want to wire the LR into your soon to be fuse block or straight to the battery to avoid any Canbus issues. At this time we do not have a mount for the 1600.
Ill look into it. I don't see why the Clearwater mount would not work on the Long Range lights.

Here is a clip from our latest 24hr effort racing Big Adventure bikes against the dirt bikes.
We don't just talk the talk, we make the walk and have for almost 12 years now.
Let us know what you think.

Thanks , have you marketed this to the jeep crowd at all , especially the early jeep crowd who have alot less electrical resources to use compared to the modern equivalents .I compare my super sherpa and its cousins the klrs alot to the old jeeps .
They aint really comfortable , their not fast but they have went a real long time with out being changed but they get the job done and get you home ..... most of the time .



and at night ... Im not stuck in that pic I came down hard on that rock and stalled the engine and couldnt restart because I had fried the starter that morning . So I had to be pushed off and rolled started backwards .
