Ok, I went with the Air Wing and light. I will add the brighter rear lights later. Thanks for the help and pics. Installed it my self and had no problems wit the instal. Made me a little tool with 3/16 copper rod and a rubber washer that I used for checking all of side to side and front to rear points to make sure it was lined up and centered. I got tired of trying to measure from the mounting posts to a curved edge. The tool saved me a lot of time and agony.

The pics you guys posted really helped, so thanks.

I went ahead and did the light. I had a buddy get hit from the rear at a stoplight. Now I want all the light I can get back their.

I'll have to send you the tool. 3/16 copper wire with a faucet washer slid on. Great for symmetry measurements.

I need all the help I can get if you know what I mean.

Will the light only fit on the Air Wing rack or Premium too?

Like Captain said, I like the increased visibility. I know it's not much but you can't trust cages these days...

Only fits on the Air Wing. No mount for the Premium. Both racks are about the same size. I like them both but chose the wing because I had one one my last bike and liked it.

For rear visibility, get a Brite Ass Lights tail light. My BAL-1 will light up the neighborhood at night and is very visible in daylight. The faint lighting at eye level of the air wing is more or less a sales gimmick in my mind, not a true visibility improvement. My own favorite for appearance is the premium rack, not the air wing. Right now I don't have any rack at all but touring season is pretty much over for me. I am thinking about going with the black premium rack. I am down playing the chrome on my ride and that glossy black one appeals to me. I already have the glossy black mirrors with the extra reach stems.

Added equipment was a stage 1 HD air cleaner, a Cee Baileys windshield and a turn out boot heel guard. I also went with the BAL1 tail light MOD. You can never be too safe with lighting. Now I am riding a Vision with minor mods to give me this.

Man, they sure do want a lot of money for a couple of LEDs.
