Has anyone mounted a light bar to the shark?

I put a light bar on my dyna and made a big difference riding through the country lighting up fields so i can see the deer and other critters before they make it out in front of me.

I thought I saw a post here were someone did. I like the idea and am contemplating doing one myself. maybe one of the flat style to mount directly below the headlight.

I plan on adding the additional fog lights that mount with the turning signals on the shark nose but i also purchased an 11" led bar from amazon that will fit perfectly under the nose. I will add the aux sw so it operates independently from the other lights.

How many lumens?

Mounting it there...just make sure you have enough clearance with the fender when the forks compress. I was thinking about going with the lights that mount onto the caliper mounts. Curious to see how this works out for you.

I made caliper brackets & mounted PIAA driving lights. Expensive but insanely bright.

I've been looking at a similar set up but have been unable to find a good way to mount it.

On another forum a guy mounted a light like that on his 15RGS but there was clearance concerns. Not sure if you hit a decent sized pot hole that the forks wouldn't compress enough for it to put a nice size ding on your fender???

When I got my '11 RGU (in '14) I replaced the stock headlights with DayMakers. I also put the DayMaker fog lamps on the highway bars at the same time. Being LED they are pulling less wattage and they put out the light.

On a sunny day I see shadow outlines of vehicles in front of me reflecting on the road signs. When riding in a group, my lights reach past five bikes in front of me and give about a 60 degree angle of light....I see all kinds of critters along the road side.
