Well, a 7" Hella headlight (H4 + 5W) comes for under € 30,- over here...
Lower price + keeping the original appearance...  ???

Good price I've always had Austria down as expensive my wife & I paid 20 odd Euros for two bowls of soup with bread at a pavement cafe in Klagenfurt in 2014. Then again we could eat Pike-Perch up the road for the same price.lol

I wouldn't tack some "ADV wannabe" lights on (any) bike...

My DTRL arrived today - this is my first fit as a suitable place to mount it I've used the bottom bolt that holds the indicator. / headlamp frame attaching a short bracket to get the angle right.

I have the option to hang it down from the swivel if I think it's too high - this way hides the bracket and looks okay to me. It consists of four 3W LED's so at 12 W not too bad.

The listing says 80LM/W so at 12W that’s 960 lumens.
About the same as a 60W H4 halogen.

Be careful where you point it!

On our old 4x4 I used the dimmer relay  that came with a kit so at night they dimmed automatically when you put main or dip beam on. I'm probably just using these for daytime safety.

Wendy offered me an old Duvet but drew the line at that idea - obv a dust sheet - I worry it might hold damp in the winter but as it's man made fibre I should be okay!

Amendment: Wendy says it's actually a "Thow".
