Being seen

I am looking for additional front lighting to be seen from the front. What has anyone had luck with?
What else have other done to be seen better?

Can use L brackets or make your own from Lowes and get the cheap LED Chinese lights (on my DR 650 and Harley)from eBay ( which work great) , or ....can get an expensive set. Helps if you have the front/sides crash or "light bar". Or....if you have this below. Possibilities are almost endless. You can do it all for $30 or up to $400.

These ones from GIVI worked great for me.
Does not seem big but it is amazing how far on the road they are seen.
You will be surprised!!

Extra lights are great for seeing, but in my opinion you can't beat a Pathblazer modulating headlight to "be" seen. My bike was the test bed for Kisan so I know for a fact they have them for the Africa Twin. https://kisantech.com/p115w-h3-af2.html . I mounted their tail light flasher as well.

I've mounted a pair of Koso Aurora LED fog lights on the Denail Aux Light Mount bar. Small but effective.

Denali D4 lights. Extremely bright. Very useful for vision at night and increases visibility significantly during the daytime.

Can’t beat these... neither the fluorescent green covers AND the Rigid Industries.amber fog logs below.. both are annoyingly bright and an “off” color..
