What say you all about amber running lights?
I cannot see in the dark, because I am a human being despite what anyone else says. My bike has a headlamp and still cannot see in the dark, and it needs to, what with being a bike.
So I need some bright spot beam LEDs, and now I have crash bars I am much less restricted by the mount options. I removed the mirror mount ones today as they were not much good, and in many different ways.
Looking around, some lights feature a separate halo light around them. With a main beam hopefully (and stupidly optimistically) being bright enough to be too dazzling for use other than as a main beam, I like the idea of the halo as an always-on running light.
Then I came across these, where the halo is amber.
Five inches is probably too much for me, I doubt my gap is big enough for them to fit, so I am unlikely to get those. But they got me thinking whether ones with an amber light is a good idea.
They are legal and apparently some cars have them, though I cannot recall seeing any, but I am not so sure because of the obvious colour clash with the indicators. On the other hand, in the U.S. my bike has a dual filament in the indicator to use as running lights, though they are not wired for that in the U.K.
So good or bad idea, in general? (And any super bright spot LED recommendations will be welcome.)
