    Hi. Im new to the Forum and the K1600. I bought a 2016 GTLE about a month ago. Coming from a 2015 GSA with its fantastic oem led lights I also find the k1600 high beams inadequate. Ive read through your entire thread and saw where you had finally found a good led h7 bulb. But I see thats a few years back and as we know, thechnology advances very rapidly. Because of al, your hard work researching this topic I greatly value your opinion.
    Can you advise me what bulb you would recommend now, at the end of 2018? Im finding the Advmonster H7 plus (new version) and the Phillips X-treme Ultinon look like potential options. I see the Advmonster has the malleable mesh heat sink as opposed to a fan whereas the Phillips has a fan. The reported lumins are quite different though Phillips claims 200% brighter than halogen h7 but 1780 lumins, AdvMonster lumins are more than double that as reported.
    Any recommendation of a currently available h7 is appreciated

    KJ, my wife and I wont be able to arrive at the TTD event until Friday 5/4, we are staying at Two Wheel Inn riding in from Greer, SC. Our arrival time will probably be around noonish, how do I sign-up for Saturdays couples ride and also for dinner Friday night along with breakfast and dinner on Saturday?

    Thanks
    Chris

    Hey there,
    I read your light post and am just clarifying, are these high beams? and are they still holding up well. when do you use them cause you stated they are even to bright during the day. thank you for your tie
