my purpose would be to get lighting out further than the stock high beam. If I ride on a twisty back country road, then the pace will be quite brisk, so I need a headlight that I wont out run at 55-60 mph around a corner, if I happen to be riding at night.
I don't often ride at night, but when I do, I want to be able to see clearly. but maybe im just spoiled by my car's headlights. my sonic has 4 round headlight housings, and when the high beams are turned on, all 4 lights are on and illuminating the road.
I have hid's on my grizzly and know how much brighter they illuminate the trails at night. I know that the cutoff will not be as sharp as with a halogen, but that's why im only putting an hid in the high beam spot.
low beam will still be a halogen and not blind people, while the high beam hid will be turned on when there are no cars around. the same idea for the auxiliary led lighting, only to turn on when the high beam is on for more light at night.
