More than adequate, but IMO a HID is the way to go. A GOOD HID, preferably in a projector lamp.
Do you ride much at night? Are you getting flashed by cagers on low beam when you do? That is one of my primary concerns ...

I found a review site last nite with 180 reviews of the PIAA xtreme white I ordered and most say the low beam is pretty even with the stock low..its the high beam that will kill rabbits and turtles on the side of the road as you drive past

No. I find the standard bulb pretty good for what I need.

The low beam has a sharp cut out. Once set properly, there is no issue for oncoming traffic.

I prefer to run on highways at night when covering distance fast.

Could you post a link to the bulb on Amazon? I tried to find it but to no avail, could very well be all the beer I drank though.

I will be wating for a review on this when you are done.

Learning how to go fast is more important to me then doing it. That is why I ride a cbr250r.
