HID's rule. I have no street HID experience but I have two 40watt HID helmet lights that I got for the Baja and they totally outpower my 100watt halogen with a small lense. For the Baja lights we had a 100watt halogen and a 100 watt HID both with 8inch lenses. Awesome lights but not DOT at all. They totally ouitpowered my helmet lights. If you ride at night spend the doe on HID.
