Your favorite fog lights
I want to put fog lights on my '05 R1200GS. I already have a set of PIAA 004x lights, and HID headlamps. But I want yellow ones, too!
I like the positioning of the caliper mount MotoLights. But I also like the neat-o! appeal of Wünderlich's Zyklops light, though I'd have to invest in some yellow stained glass paint to make it a fog light.
What do you like? Why? What should I get? Why?
Inquiring minds want to know!

Previous owner put these caliper Moto lights on the GS. They're OK, but nothing much helps in fog.

Clearwater Kristas on the light bar and Moto lights on the forks, here.
THe Kristas are the best I have used so far. I had a pair of Hella lights fitted with 4.3k HIDs and they were great in the hills but I was blinded when I would have to turn them off for an oncoming car. Besides the Kristas have a better focus pattern.
THe Moto lights down low have been fitted with amber LED's and are more about being seen rather than seeing.

Cheap E-bay yellow LEDs. Put out well enough for conspicuity duty without blinding oncoming traffic.
ADVMonster spots. Bright, but not traffic friendly.
The whole set-up ran me $150.

That is my GS on the left in front of the Tellico Outfitters in Tellico Plains, TN.
I have a pair of LightForce 140s mounted to the light bar and a pair of PIAA 510s above the headlight (yeah I know, can't have auxiliary lights above the headlight, I remove both sets once a year to get the bike inspected ).
The LightForce 140 have swappable shields (I have the yellow ones in this picture) that allow you to convert them to driving, fog or cornering lights or use different color shields for various weather conditions. I have had them on my bike for the past three years and like them.
The PIAA 510s produce a lot of light for the size and serve to enhance the pathetic high beam on the GS.
