    I moved from a dyna to a 08 street glide this week and the head lamp lighting is not too safe. I had about a 40' light path on low beam. I adjusted the lamp to spec from the owners manual and it is about the same as it was before. High beam is good, but the cars coming at me are flicking their lights at me like crazy. Any advice would be appreciated.

    You'll be pleased + amazed w/the Osram bulb illumination. Best $20 spent on bike...

    Thanks Dr D and Iceman, I will look into the upgrades. Between the road kill and the bazillion Iowa deer, the night rides are a little scary.

    +2 on the 80/100w Osram "Nightbreaker", I installed the Hella E code reflector with improved optics for good measure. Super bright!
