|FireManC50||Six months update: Denali lights are going strong, I keep them on all the time to increase visibility. I dialed-in the Denali beam to match the headlight cut-off line. Riding in PA back-roads over Memorial day weekend: two lane serpentine road and surrounding lights-up like day. Very clear difference between the just the headlight and headlight+Denali lights. Really glad I invested into this lights, and wish my headlight had the same color tone. Considering aftermarket LED units or H4/9004 bulbs are mostly garbage, I will just stick with the current setup.|

After riding for a few weeks, I can tell the aux lights help. They don't make a world of difference in urban environment full of street lights and other ambient lighting, but they make it easier to navigate the dark back roads and dimly lit streets. They did make me feel more comfortable on a recent NY->NJ->NY trip, when I was coming back in the dark. I would rate this lights 7 out of 10, in part for outstanding customer service from Twisted Throttle. "-1" for chrome not being completely uniform on the back of cooling fins, "-0.5" for dinky switch mounted via double-sided tape and "-0.5" for switch mounting plate not working with C50 (contrary to advertised), "-1" for light distribution not being more of a uniform spread on sides. To be honest, $75 shipped - I don't think there is a light system out there that can compete. Would I buy it for $400+ original MSRP - No!
P.S. In all fairness, Twisted Throttle has a new version of this lights called Denali DR1 2.0, which addresses most of my complaints above, plus it has a proper water proof switch, ability to dim the lights out of the box (you do need an extra switch/module) and very cool canbus integration with certain motorcycles. If you were to buy full price, look for DENALI D4 2.0 - I believe a better light for the same $ (original MSRP).

|FX4||I haven't seen amber "fog" lights in years on vehicles. I don't think the color amber proved to be any more effective than white for driving in fog. We used to say white for driving lights and amber for fog lights but amber has disappeared, now it seems the distinction between fog lights and driving lights is the how they are pointed and the beam pattern.|

Nope. On my BMW 12GS. But I'm sure you can find pics somewhere of them on a Boulevard.
Here are some: https://www.clearwaterlights.com/pag...ard-gallery%20
A fork mount is probably best, but would work on a lightbar too. The folks at Clearwater are really easy to talk to--just ask 'em.

|pbryon||I have white aux lights. Even though aux, they're always on. (Clearwater Darla--pricey, but really nice.) I have the slip-on amber covers that I can easily put on them when in rain or fog.|
