    I placed my HUGE order at my dealer. Could have probably saved some more money by ordering here & there online, but sometimes it's simpler to order from the local dealer and I feel we need to support our local dealers sometimes. I had a big order and this was way easier. I got 10% off my entire order... so I'll take that.

    I picked up 2 things for the Nightster...

    1st - Custom Dynamics ringz LED front blinkers

    I started with this, regular halogen PIAA bulb in the HD housing and regular Custom Dynamics LED front blinkers




    Ringz on left / Reg on right (left ringz looks like a solid light but it's just the outer ring of LEDs)



    Ringz on both


    You can see how yellow the headlight looks


    These things are bright as hell, lighting up well just in front of the bike and under/before the headlight hits the ground, at this point I covered up the headlight.


    So onto the 2nd item - the HD LED daymaker headlight

    Move onto the stock HD headlight


    Here's how the stock headlight looks (no bright LED blinker ringz)


    The beauty of this thing!!!


    Installed



    Low Beam



    High Beam


    The light output is very precise and you can really tell on the road... but they are BRIGHT.


    Another shot showing the blinkers in action...


    And once the blinker stops, it goes out for a half a second, then back to ringz



    That's all I'm doing to the nightster... it's a low mileage/use bike so I always moderate the spending on the bike. But the wife rode more at night this year and complained about not seeing very well. The lights just aren't much, and she doesn't have good night vision, and she is use to HID's in her & my car. This was the only vehicle we own that didn't have em... so now it has the bright LED setup. I'm very happy with this mod.

    Yeah they look very good Gas Man. It was the first thing I noticed when I walked into his garage earlier to pic up my spare parts. It really looks good on the nightster.

    I sold some stuff from my Road King this morning from my Craigslist post, and drove right to the dealership and plunked that cash down for the Daymaker for my Road Glide they gave me 10%. They'll slap it on this week while its in.

    I was out a couple weeks ago riding to Ann Arbor on that foggy/misty day, I was appalled at the horrible head lights.

    Chris, I like those Custom Dynamics LEDs, I'm considering those or the Badlands - did you look at the Badlands LEDs as well?
