    lighting - niterider road rat - any good??????

    I'm looking for a light for an occasional night ride. Is the Niterider Road Rat light any good? I'm looking for a light on a budget - something that I can see by and that will allow me to be seen - both on the trail and road?

    I have a TrailRat (same light, better battery). It's fine for slow and moderate paced trail riding after dark, but not enough for high-speed riding. And it's adequate for nighttime road rides.

    As a first light, it's not bad, especially if you can find it on sale. If you start doing regular night rides, you will eventually want/need to upgrade (which is fine, because two lights is the way to go - one helmet mount, one bar mount).
