Jackjohn, they sure do. I tested them out on country roads that had no street lights. They low beams were actually bright enough and I didn't need the high beam. However when I put the high beams on, I got a lot more distance and kind of a spot light effect in the center. My wife kept commenting on the brightness from the back seat.

My question as well.... I have the SoCalMotoGear on my lowers.. work great, show up the ditches great.. .... I have 9600 Lumens on Hi beams...from the big "E"... They put out tons of light however, nothing really focused down the road, just kind of like big flood lites... ... Have been trying to find a Youtube review comparison on these commonly used brands... Still looking... Concerned about out driving the hi beams at speed...

What I see with the high beams is kind of flood light effect projecting very far down the road, and then a kind of spot light effect concentrated in the center, again with a good distance down the road.

I have Harley's DayMaker LED lights on my Harley. I've been riding them for about 4 years and enjoyed them. So, that is what I was expecting as far as performance. I believe EC bulbs outperform my DayMakers.

I installed the pathfinder led kit, and couldn't be happier. They work great, and produce a lot of light.
