Do see the 6.7 heat up faster with bike up front on a grade, it’s a given. Seen her in the 220’s coming out of White Bird Idaho, a long grade….but was no 124 [emoticon]
Can’t find those old pic’s so copy/paste are your friends.[emoticon] Still get a beer?[emoticon]

Kayteg1 good catch, thought about rotating them…….but it’s work…..so bottom of the todo list still[emoticon]

Before I start this project, how legal is this. Don't you obscure the headlights? Does CHP have a problem with this?

Carrier will be hone made from steel, so pretty heavy with a Honda CRF300, which is a 300 lb bike. Carrier will be attached to the 2 front tow hook receivers, I think I will adapt the 'snowplow set up with additional Rigid lights..

Are snowplow lights legal for road use?

Every major snowplow manufacturer uses them and snowplows spend more time on the road than anywhere else .

If legal, they will have NHTSA/DOT certification number on the lens just like your OEM lights. You'll notice, none of the off road lights have this. Same thing with light bulbs, the good ones are labeled, the cheap stuff are all illegal (just like putting HID/LED in a halogen housing).

Have been on the road for 6 weeks or so with a front carrier. Half way across the country.

I WAS stopped by a state trooper for maintaining my 50mph top speed up a hill to be kind to traffic backing up behind me. The speed limit dropped to 35 and I missed it.

Just a warning for speeding. Never even looked at the front carrier.

It’s been fine everywhere.
