    Lasers!

    Pardon me if this has been asked 1K times before (I’m new). I’m looking for recommendations for forward lighting options that will burn retinas and melt chrome on demand. I just pulled the trigger on an “in crate” Crosstourer. I’m moving from Northern California to Baja Mexico🇲🇽 this month and I’m planning on riding this bike to Tierra Del Fuego next year. 50/50 roads and moonless nights are on the menu so if you have suggestions I would very much appreciate your input. Cheers

    Take a peek at the Denali Electronics site.  I have their D4’s.  If you want to go really crazy mount a pair of Denali D7’s.

    Thanks Jac, those look like the hot ticket, and priced accordingly!

    Just pulled the trigger a pair of Denali D7’s. 15,000 Lumens. Combined with my “police special” headlight bulbs will net me 23,000 Lumens. (Stock filament is 3700) Lol

    Be sure to post a photo when you have the Denali D7’s mounted on your new VFR1200X.  Folks will want to see what those beasts look like on a Crosstourer.

    These are my Denali D4’s with hybrid selective yellow lenses currently installed.

    That looks great. That’s probably all I really need but I’m committed. Will definitely post pics. They’ve given me 20% off parts & labor so I’m trying to just cry once with a fairly long list. Any other recommendations are appreciated.

    2 headlight replacement bulbs that are used for Police Motorcycles. Standard bulb filament is 3,700 Lumens. These are LED 8,000 Lumens.

    The US version of the VFR1200X Crosstourer comes equipped with a headlight filament of 3,700 Lumens. Police special versions are equipped with special LED filaments. If your local dealer services police bikes, they probably stock them. You need 2 @ $69.95ea.
    HTH cheers
