Cheap Auxillary lights

I see that SW-Mototech has some inexpensive ($57) daytime running lights for the Gen 1 bikes. Anybody familiar with these. I ride very little at night and mostly am interested in having more light exposure to cars. Comments or suggestions?

Double check that.
I think what you are looking at is just the light mounts for the Gen1.

ray h, you are correct. I feel like an idiot. When God said its time for brains, I thought he said trains and I said give me a slow one.

I have seen some of the inexpensive running lights in this price range and was thinking it would be a way to go instead of some handguards with built in turn signal lighting. Here is one set, and I have seen cheap ones at wallly world for as low as $29/pair. BTW, Acerbus has a set of handguards with built in LED's, but the adjustable rear of the bulb and expose wiring does not look finished.

I found that mondomoto makes a high quality light for a fair price.

I have these on my Concours. http://mondomotos.com/MM10

Thanks TWAddict. That looks like what the doctor ordered for my purposes. As it turns out, any of the others that looked by better quality were around $50/each plus wiring harness, so this is a good deal for what looks like a quality product. Mondo is out of them right now.
