    Tonight several of us met at Hooters to have dinner and after we were looking at the bikes. One 08 had low beam HID and the other stock, both had factory high beam. The bike with the HID also has his turn signals set up as running lights and aftermarket mirrors that have turn signals, it made a huge difference in visibility. Here is a couple of pics....

    I can't tell you how much I actually use mine, I almost didn't do the mod thinking I wasn't going to ride much at night, but I was wrong. I love the HID's, they make a world of difference. The blinker mod is cool as well. I have enjoyed both.

    5k Hi and Lo...

    I want to do this but I've heard a few horror stories about having to mod the socket with a washer or grommet or something. I want a plug and play set up.
