Step 8: Beam Shots

Finally had some time to take beam shots.  I did not have a tripod handy so the crispness is a little lacking but the results come across.  For comparison I also took some pics of the headlight beam from a stock CB550 with incandescent bulb on HIGH beams.  The photos show that the LED has a much broader beam and a lot more light in general.  The throw is pretty similar between the two with the incandescent is much more focused and directed.  From a rider point of view, the LED is a big improvement over the anemic stock light.  Comparison photos are taken with the same camera settings.
Cool. Very nice. WAY over my head though!
