I've had a 35 Watt HID setup in my low beam (nacelle / freight train) for a while now, and wanted to add a little more in terms of lumens to my high beam, while maintaining the H9 bulb in the nacelle.

I bought (2) 10 Watt (~900 lumens each) 60° flood LED driving lights from SuperBrightLeds.com, and (2) Kuryakyn 1.25" p-clamps to attach them to my Baron Customs engine bar.

Using H9 harnesses and those little gray w/ orange tab quick connectors, I was able to set the driving lights up to activate with the high beam only. No cutting or splicing :)
They are slightly angled away from the bike to assist with side-of-the-road lighting while traveling through dark, wooded areas.

Just wanted to share!

I want to light up the road for pot holes, as I ride to work in the dark, and the side of the road for deer. Plus, this will give me a bigger footprint for other motorists.

If conspicuity is your only concern, any of the 3 will work.
HOWEVER, if you are looking to light up the road, the 3rd is your only option of the 3.
Or you could go Poncho's route, which looks like it'd be pretty bright.
Warlock Weary has essentially similar lights to mine, though my optics and chips are different. Otherwise similar.

Nice and metal housings too, not too bad at all.

I've wanted to add some lights to mine but have been leery of adding them down low on the engine guards, relative to a light bar.

Anyone have lights both ways? How much difference in beam pattern and distance?

I have mine on the outer part of the highway bar. Spreads the pattern and gives a larger footprint for cages.

Connected via relay to the HID in the headlight. When the engine runs, all front lights are on. Safety more than anything, but the also light up the road close in.

Looking for H3 HID conversion for them, or HID lights. I don't like the bright white headlight with yellow-ish driving lights.

I just order a single Rigid Industries SR-Q2 LED driving light.

Going to try to get it mounted between the forks, under the headlight, using some sort of bracket off the turn signal mounts.

3096 lumens. Should throw off a nice bit of light.
