Angel Eyes for Versys

I just heard about these things last week from one of my NCOs who rides. Anyways, for the uninitiated, Angel Eyes are solid acrylic rods that wrap around headlights. The acrylic rods have cuts in the back and LEDs on each end. The cuts reflect the LED light forward and make the acrylic tube light up. It gives the effect of a "halo" around the lights.

Here is an example on an R6:



Here is a photoshopped example of how I think routing might work on a Versys.

Not quite as mean looking...

I think it loses a bit of emphasis on the Versys. The headlight (probably the most talked about feature, appearance wise) just doesn't have a 'mean' look to it, other than the guys who've used tint to make it look like the skull from "The Punisher".

Here ya go:




From this thread, pg 3, guy named Jared. Also, same page, he did the same thing on his windscreen. I'm not sure of the legality of such a thing on the headlight, but it sure does look good...
