3rd Road Glide (17 RGS) light help!!!!

I have had the bike a couple weeks and frustrated that there are no headlight options to be found. Am I missing something, using wrong phrases in my interweb search or what? I can't even find an HD option so any help would be greatly appreciated. I have the CD directional lights and love them but REALLY want super bright headlights. Have always had them ever since I learned of such a thing about 10 (?) years ago. PLEASE HELP!!!!!

Nothing aftermarket out there yet that I've seen for the RushEDmore bikes.

High beams...I keep mine on unless it is really low light or at night..could always throw on a set of clearwaters on the lower fork legs...or engine bar...

On my 15 RGS, I run high beams during the day, CD turn signals, and PIAA driving lights mounted on homemade caliper brackets. I am beyond BRIGHT! IMO, the stock Rushmore headlights are nice units.

The stock headlights are fine. Just add a set of god driving lights and Custom Dynamics front & rear. I have Clearwater Darlas for my driving lights. Love em. They have a dimmer switch so they are brighter during daylight hours and I turn them down at dusk. As others have said, use your high beams, too.

How did you mount your Darlas?

Had a friend modify the fender bracket to go on the front brake calipers. Mounted the dimmer switch to the Iron Aces Mount.
