Railroad locomotives have lower, front-corner mounted lights called 'ditch lights'. The lights give a very noticeable triangular pattern. Some Goldwings have this style of lighting and it is very noticeable. I had these style of lights on my Shadow so I decided to put a set on the Nomad.
These lights use the same type of bulb used in house accent lighting. It's bright but doesn't cast the type of beam that blinds oncoming cars...exactly what I wanted.
I'm still toying with mounting positions. When I decide upon a final position I'll probably run the wires inside the crashbars.
I plan to have them on all the time but I installed a switch anyway...just in case.
I found a mounting location I liked so I ran the wires internally. It looks much cleaner that way.
