    Go to Cosco and Buy 3 of the Rayovac Headlights. Mount two on the bar and
    one on the Helmet. They are K2 Led 85 lumen lights. I am using one on my Helmet and its Dang near as Bright has the Nightrider Mi Newt (that retails for 160.00) I use on the Bar. Best Value. 15.99
    3 should be just over 50 bucks with tax.

    I picked up one of these this week as a backup light....and damn is it bright for the money. The beam is very narrow, though. Three of them would be very rideable, but it would pair best with a cheap flood, maybe a 10-15w halogen from blt or marwi or even a fenix. For under $20, I don't think it can be beat anyway.
    Is it true you're an analyst for Brewster-Keegan? Awesome!

    Thats funny. I had a set of those in my hands yesterday at Costco to use as a backup light.

    Didn't buy them, but now I might have to!!
