Beautiful late Spring greenery there Dualthing.

I've been intending to ask for sometime, what is the advantage to the Hi-Definition Amber headlight lens?

As I understand it, any tinting reduces night time light output.

The amber cover is for daytime only, too dark for night riding, it sticks with velcro bits to light, so, easy to remove
I seldom ride after sunset, so it stays on
Reason: for high visibility - it really works, too often that one hear "I didn't see you"

Ok, so they are a custom fitting, temporary, daytime only Stone Shield / Safety Aid.
I imagine they are molded for each specific model? Where are they manufactured and by whom?
