Hmm....LED, single wide lens...wonder how it'd fit on something like a Ulysses...? Wonder how it WORKS, maybe someone at a HD dealer could let us know once they start shipping?

May be you should buy the bike and ride it to Kansas in a crosswind, at night, to check out the headlight!

Who loves you baby

What if there are multiple vortices, it could affect the beam pattern of the rims.

Hahahaha . . . . I did that for years.

I'd fly into Milwaukee . . . pick up a "model to be introduced" . . . . ride through the night to have it in a garage by the next day.

Then . . . . it was off to Highway 4. Just beyond Eskridge is an awesome stretch of straight roadway. I'd drop a bag of flour to get the wind direction and then mark an arrow on the pavement with lumber crayon.

Next . . . I'd note the configuration of the bike . . . bags, no bags, tank bag, which windscreen (we were testing 3 various for S2) and general notes.

Then . . . I'd start at 40mph . . . making successively faster passes to see how the bike handled in the crosswinds.

S2's were pretty damn stable. The S3, when loaded with a heave tank bag (2 IBM ThinkPads) started to act like a Cessna in a Dutch roll.

Fun stuff . . . .and Highway 4 remains one of the best kept secrets in America. Stop for lunch in Council Grove . . . then take Highway 99 into Manhattan and dig the scenery along the way.
