Agreed, Silverstars are nice bulbs.
Replaced the bulbs in the 'Busa and RC51 with them.

Yep silverstars are awesome! I had them on all the other bikes I've owned. I have yet to put them in any of the bikes I have now though. I ride with the brights on! I ordered some silverstars through work, just waiting for them to come in!

Just remember the brighter kits have a shorter lifespan than OEM

I bought the "ULTRA"'s . The stockers lasted 13 years ! ! If these last half that long, that will be fine......
