I can actually SEE at night now...

Received my headlamps/bulbs and harness from the wizard Mr. Daniel Stern (H4 Cibie), thanks to Hilldweller's comments... had them installed yesterday, and by golly, I can see to drive in the dark now!

I've been told I have *night blindness*... in other words, if it's dark out, I just can't see. Yes, I put on glasses, but if there is no light pollution (moon, street lamps etc...) I'm blind as a bat. One reason I use Surefire headlamps, and Lenser flashlights... I need all the help I can get.

Now, granted I'm still in the *city* here in SoCal, but headed for the next 6 months up in the mountains in northern Utah... I'll snap shots after I get there, when I'm driving in a storm at night...

Love the lights... they are oh so bright and light up a larger area... including off the the right side of the road (help me see the moose/deer etc...).

Sounds like a good reason to carry spares.

I like reading about lighting upgrades. At least twice now I've reached for the switch only to see that it was already on.

Got 2 spares on-board... plus... I may not drive with my headlights on all the time - like I used to.

You can remedy that quite easily, if you want to keep the stock H-13's, simply buy a set of H-13 Phillips XTreme power +80's(direct replacement) about $35-40 bucks or go with the bypass harness and get some good H-4's in it, around $250 to $350 depending on what lens you want, these are awesome....

Excellent plan to carry spares, I have some Hella fogs out front that I've started using on rainy, darkish days just to save on the headlight bulbs...

Agreed, I've got some off the shelf Wagner's from NAPA that work well. The Wagner Harley bulbs are on par w/ the Phillips, very bright and slightly less $.
