Cool 9003 Head Light bulb

Any opinions on what is the brightest halogen 9003 bulb out there or maybe not the brightest but provides the best down range/wide vision at night.

I changed to the Philips Motovision bulb. It is brighter and whiter than the stock bulb and has a unique "orange" appearance during the day. I was looking for something better than stock without going led or with one of the really white halogen bulbs available. I am currently on my 2nd one with the first lasting about 22,000 miles. Putting my old oem back in reminded me why I liked the Motovision, which is why I went back to it.

Hey, Thanks for your responses
I tried a LED when I had my Yamaha 1300 V Star before I bought the Voyager and it was really bright close but it really didn't have the reach down the road. I don't remember what LED bulb I used.
I do currently have LED bulbs in my running lights and at night they are really bright close and wide field of view but I want something when I click on the high beam it really shows the road as far as possible. When you start getting old you need all the light you can get.

Thinking of changing halogen bulbs to HID or LED read this...
Daniel Stern Lighting Consultancy and Supply

Phillips +130 is brightest halogen bulb on market.
