Default LED Lights

Any pro's or con's on LED Head Lights. I Know there brighter but do they help you see the road any better.

Haven’t done the headlight yet myself...plan on doing the new brattons reflectors and LEDs. However, I did just put some LED bulbs in the tail lights and was rather happy with them, much brighter which should help with being more visible as I don’t run a third brake light. Just a thought.

That is an interesting video. Do you know of a supplier? Paul mentioned an auction, but I didnít see any pertinent information.

Here is the website for Logolites. Good people and they just re-engineered their 6V positive ground bulbs to address the "flicker" issue. They are available through the website or through your favorite supplier. I spoke with them a couple times to address the problems that I was having (poor connections through the headlight switch).
