I got some for my motorcycles, and after installing them in two 
different bikes, got concerned with how directional they seemed to be.  
One of the bikes, a HD Sportster, was okay because the bulb points back 
parallel with the road.  On the other, a 1981 Virago, the bulb points 
downward and depends on a reflector to spread the beam.  It seemed to be 
much less bright than the incandescent bulb if you viewed at an angle 
slightly off center.  So it never stayed in that bike.  Didn't seem as 
safe and/or obvious to following traffic.  I don't know if this was 
peculiar to the brand I got, but I would suggest you check carefully to 
see if you lose any apparent brightness.
