Re: LED headlight direct replacement bulbs? Any worth the bother?

I have an LED headlight kit on my R100GS, best thing i ever bought for the bike, massive difference from the standard candle that was fitted, it wasnt just a bulb, it was a kit, with controller and a CREE chip bulb, was easy to fit, just had to mount the controller unit.
