Yep, I consider the LED on my 2017 CB500X to be just adequate. Full beam is pretty good.

Conversely, the LED headlight on my CRF 250 Rally is excellent for both dipped and full beam, much better than the CB500X.

With that setup, if they hit you, you know it is personal!

How do you guys keep from dazzling oncoming drivers with aux lights?

Seems like there is no point in having drivers see your lights if they can't see anything else anymore.

I have mine pointing down enough so that they are not blinding anyone. It does mean they are less effective as far as my seeing goes, but they still add enough light to matter a big difference. I ride only on roads.
