V-Star passing lamps / running lights

First of all; thanks for a great forum.
I am considering mounting the OEM passing lamps on my 2002 XVS 650A. Both because they looks cool, but mostly for visibility. You can never be too visible. Right?
But I hate visible wiring. Does anyone have close-up pictures of these running lights / passing lamps when mounted on the bike?
Thanks in advance.

Welcome!

Sneaky to work a question into your required introductory post

If you use the OEM lightbar, only about 2-3 inches of wiring is visible at most. And to see it you would have to get down on your knees and look somewhat upward between the lightbar and headlamp.

I don't have a pic, but if you have factory front turn signals, just take a pic of your turn signal wires and then YOU will have a pic
as it looks the same.

Oh yeah, don't forget to post pics of your ride!

Question

Thanks for your replies.
Sorry for posting in the wrong place. I also posted under V-Star, and now I would like to delete this thread. But how do I delete a post? It seems that I can delete a "later" post, but not my first .
