I've been contemplating getting a set, just wondering how well they'll match up on a blue bike.

I'm getting a set. Not sure if I want chrome and smoke or black and smoke.

Your bike Vivid Black or Black Quartz?

I was on the fence about these. One day I was getting on the Loop at rush hour. I was on a flyover entrance ramp and I was looking down at the gridlock on the Loop and the service road. There was a HD with these lights on it on the service road. When he hit the brakes, I could see them from a half a mile away. All those taillights and these stood out most. I ordered mine that night.

My bike is a mix of black and chrome. So I'm on the fence with these. It's not all blacked out. Or chromed out. It's a mix. So I don't know which direction to go with these.

Same thing here, riding back one night I see a bright lit up something or other over a mile down the road. I'm wondering what the heck it is, it's so lit up! When I came up on it, I could tell it was a bagger (about a 2014 or up based on the tour pak lights) and he had those saddle bag lights on it, and man let me tell you, the back of that bike was IN YOUR FACE BRIGHT!

A set came with my detachable tour pak that I haven't put on yet. Can't decide whether I like the look of them because to me they're a little too "blingy" for my taste. They're chrome with red lens, and parts manager said he would swap them out for whichever versions I wanted, so on the fence on what to do. If I could get them to blend in as nicely as Thirdcoast it would be a no brainer. Painting my bike black to do so is not an option! To go the smoke lens route, to look right would have to go smoke lens for the rest of the lenses; not a cheap option, but yeah, they do what they're supposed to do, no doubt.
