I wanted a set of aux lights for my 2013 GS and needed them to throw a little extra lighting off to the sides to light up critters just off the road and also use as daytime running lights, I bought the BMW set as they are certainly the easiest to mount and plug-in although they may not be the cheapest and don't put out a great deal of down range light.

Just one word. Clearwater.

Look no further. I am on my second set of lights. I have a set of Erica lights on my 2010 GS.

Plug and play.

Must be real good. I got sticker shock when I saw those prices. Convinces me to stick with my plan to use SuperbrightLeds as a source for aux lighting. Not even $100.00 for what I want. I am going for functionality/safety/Value.

Aux Lights

Clearwater products are very, very good, perhaps they're the best available. I run a set of Darlas that are always on and a pair of Kristas when I really want to brighten a dark road. Their CanOpener 3 integrates the Clearwater wiring harness with your machine's electrical system and is absolutely plug 'n play. The lights may then be controlled by the "wonder-wheel," if your machine is so equipped. Their customer services is superb! On a trip to Alaska this past summer, one of those big rigs on the Dalton launched a rock that cracked the lens on one of the Darlas. I called about a replacement and it was sent that day, free of charge. The owner, Glenn Stasky, is a quality guy. If you're in the Sacrament area, stop by and he'll show you around.
