    I don't think there is a single best solution.
    Do you want to see or be seen?
    Different lights are best at different things.
    I bought Denali D2s, not easy to install, but can be dimmed. Also pricey.

    Look up the headlight law in your state AND any states you ride in.
    A common provision is "no glare", whatever that means.
    Another is some provision like "light beam must be below lens at 25 feet."
    I do not know where the 25 feet comes from, but I see it in the laws of numerous states.

    The Photon Blasters are always on. The flood lights are on when I really need to see the full picture at night, or need to ensure that I am more visible to others. Using the mounting position that I've chosen helps to get the most distance between the lights and open up "the triangle" as much as possible to aid other drivers with perception of distance.

    Flood lights: LED Fog Light - 3" Square - 25W | Auxiliary Driving Lights | LED Daytime Running Lights | LED Car Light Bulbs | Super Bright LEDs
    Photon Blasters (white): Skene Lights - motorcycle safety lighting

    Here are some photos of my setup.

    I've had good luck with the reasonability priced mondomotos MM10 Led lights. The MM10 model is no longer available, but they do have very similar new styles. I went with the switch mounted on the handlebars and wired through the Honda accessory harness, so the lights shutdown when the key is turned off.

    Can you elaborate more or perhaps show a more close up photo of your highway pegs, and your mounting point.

    I have an extra set I never got to installed on my last bike and would like to adapt on to the NC but lacking a way of doing so...

    Need some ideas...
