Be interested in this, possibly for the aesthetics more than improving the light, and will hopefully make the bike more visible

yeah, got some cheapo ones of evil bay, didn't work out to well lol. I want to wire them into the dipped / low beam, the cheap ones work via a switch only. Each time you operate the switch you scroll through the low / high / strobe functions to set them as required. Wiring without the switch was lots of fun as each lamp decided to do as it felt like!!
So I need a set that has just 1 beam pattern, rather than selectable, if you follow.

Hint: Use a separate switch - that way you have no problems at MOT time. Easy enough to remember to turn them on and off.
Nothing is foolproof to a sufficiently talented fool.

And because they're LEDs, i wired mine in without a relay also (just as well, getting pretty packed behind headlamp).
