    Ground Lighting
    « on: 2013-11-21 10:36:30 »
    Has anyone had this accessory installed to their bike?
    If so, is it worth the money and effective, or merely a gimmick?
    It should make you smile!

    Yes - I have it.
    Well - not really usefull, but nice gimmick  ;)
    If there was a bit more light from it - it would be more usefull.

      I don't have it myself, but on the K1600forum several people said they did not think it was worth the money. Nice gimmick but not really useful.

            I don't have it. I considered it but came to the conclusion it was a real waste of money. Three months on I made the right choice!
            Just enjoy it!

                I haven't been anywhere yet, got on or off my bike, and thought that ground lighting would have made a difference.


                Its only an opinion!


                If it works for you then great.



                Just enjoy it!

                  What were you quoted to have them fitted, if you thought you needed them of course.

                  I had the ground lighting on my 2011 K1600, but when I bought a new one in May 2013 I did not ask for it and have not missed it.

                    I agree with Steiner, its a nice gimmick but would benefit from being a bit brighter and having a better spread of light.

                      I have it on mine and like it but STeinar's comment is accurate.
