Default headlight advice

this winter im planning on adding some led's to the bike as well as halos, hid bulbs, and the angle eyes.

my question is, how do 30k purple xenon headlights compare with the stock headlights? i dont want to get the purple lights if they are going to be even more dull than the stock ones, but i really like the way the purple ones look.

wtf man are you serious? After 8000k your eyes have a really hard time picking up light. 4500k to 5000k is the most light output.
6000k max, even 8000k is stupid and annoying and has low output

btw.. I have never even heard of 30000K HID... once you start going pure blue and especially purple the light is worthless..

As for adding LED's to the bike, I didn't want to rip open the headlight housing but wanted some Audi lights for turn signals so I put them in the air ducts and have them as running lights/turn signals

Weird because I have ordered the 6000k and the 8000k and I noticed a difference between the 2. Unless I had a biased opinion.
But hey 99% of people are happy is fine with me for the price.

i had 8k on my bike and didn't really like it. way too blue and couldn't really make anything out. i have 6k on my car and i like the color but wanted something more white and bright to bring attention to myself while riding day and night (that rhymed). my buddy has 5k on his civic and i liked the color so i put 5k on my bike. much better.

also, for the leds. i did the turn signals and i love them. all my friends say they look awesome in person. the hids kinda drown out the turn signals but are still visible.
