If you want the power, try this one
On a more serious note, I have a set of Cree driving lights on the rig, and they are great.

You can find a set of 1,600 Lumen Crees at a decent price.  Check this: 18W LEDs lights
They are Made of 6x3W  LEDs; Total of 18W at 6,000K Color Temperature with 1,600 Lumens.

LEDs lights comes with basically 2 different lightning angles: 30 degrees or 60 degrees and you have to decide if you want a 30 degrees spot light or a 60 degrees flood lights

Some people advertise LED light up to 1,800 Lumens for dirt cheap. Don't be fooled... This is the brightness for a set of 2 lights or 900 Lumens per light.

The link posted by Duck are made in China, and they don't look like Cree lights. To my knowledge, the Cree lights have 3,4 or 6 LEDs when the ones shown have multiple LEDs.

Here is a youtube video of the 10w Cree:

Cree is constantly developing new LEDs.  Just because you've never seen them doesn't mean they don't exist.

Given the amount of light they emit I could care less if they're actually Cree LEDs or not.  The fact that they work well is what matters to me, not what brand they may or may not be.

Yes Thanks Rossko mine are great also...admittedly I went the crash bar mount way and my lights are on with low beam only, my crash bars were a bit small so Rossko swapped me his ...which he used as outriggers/trainer wheels they are enormous!!!! I can now rest my feet on them when I cruise...all in all a great result.

I was going to go the crash bar option, but found space a bit limited with the smaller bars. So I made same brackets that mount in existing holes near the air intakes  under the horns . 
Mounted on the crash bars like that gives a much wider look, I like it.
