Vstar 950 riding light recommendations?

Hello all,
I have a white 2013 Vstar 950 with added windshield and hard saddle bags. I would like to add a couple front riding lights to augment the headlight, but want to keep a stock look. Not sure, a light bar? I have seen a pic that has lights that looked like they were attached vertically to the turn signals? Anyone have any recommendations or pics of their additions? I appreciate any feedback.
Thanks!

Are stock (OEM) lights out of the question? They're designed to fit the bike and function off of the connector in the headlight enclosure. Just a thought. Augie

I'm always working very diligently to discover the obvious.

Heck no, Augie! Probably the answer right there! I just got the bike last summer and hadn't even checked Yamaha's offerings. I would much rather OEM, if possible. Thanks!

Thanks! I'll beep on my way to Gettysburg Monday! (Unfortunately, I'll be in my car.) I really appreciate it.

Jack,

Here's a shot of my 950T with the OEM light bar. I also put on visors on all the lights since the picture was taken.
