    I currently have an aftermarket brand that was not light on the wallet, but am not getting my money's worth...IMO.

    I really don't want to spend a ton of money on fog lights but will if i accomplish more goals that just seeing when it's foggy. I want a powerful driving light that blasts through the snow, shoots straight, acts as wide cornering lights, and can light up the road way ahead of me.

    This is what i'm looking currently contemplating in amber but am not interested in the price. Anyone else running these lights?

    I am really not interested in the price tag, so does anyone have some recommendations on fog/driving/cornering/inexpensive/really bright lights??

    Fog lights aren't for you to see better in fog. They're so others can see you better. The stronger the lights, the worse it is in fog. Just like how the high beams make it 10 times worse in fog.

    I would, but you've failed me yet again. First, you didn't tell me i had a diff drop, and now you've not provided the promised lighting yet

    I fixed the OP so you can see what i'm asking. I need driving lights that light up the road, blasts through snow, and act as a wide cornering light

    You have to show up then I'll get you the pink Ray-O-Vac backup lights. Lavender for the fogs with lime green and purple duck tape?

    I'm thinking of the Baja design squadron r sport, wide cornering or driving combo,amber and white. Also I like the s sport by the same company. What's wrong with your motos? Besides light output.

    I had Morimotos and they were amazing. If you have the housing for a 3" round that is the way to go imo.

    I assure you the $500 Rigid pods are not $400 better than the comparable Freedom LED version... But they do come with bragging rights.

    That's exactly what i need, but they aren't cheap. If i could get those for under $400 i might be interested...though i'm not sure that's a viable request

    Hmm.. Well, my current 3x3 pods are definitely a lot brighter than the Morimotos, but they're also not street legal. I felt for a driving light that I could use against oncoming traffic they were pretty amazing.

    You know i don't care about bragging rights, i just want nice stuff for cheaper than $400-500 for fog lights. You said "Freedom LED version." What were you referring to?
