    Hi geoman, I see you have the cord that goes to the remote switch underneath the rubber handlebar mount. It looks like it keeps that cord from just hanging around so it's a good idea. I wouldn't have thought of that. I might have to steal your idea and try it out.

    Actually, I've yet to use that particular Betty 7... I have a Lupine Peppi to add to the picture now - it's an o-ring mount for the remote switch. The Betty and Wilma come with a velcro assisted mount for the switch - works fine - but the Peppi is a cheap upgrade.

    Steal away! Glad to offer some assistance.

    I actually have one of the peppi mounts too, but even so your idea might route the cord a bit more out of the way. By the way, the Betty and Wilma I bought from you a while back are working GREAT for me. Even after many many rides with these lights I still am amazed at times at how effective they are at laying down some serious light. I haven't seen anyone around here using anything even remotely as powerful as the Lupines. The guys at my LBS started chatting a bit about bike lights, but they still seem to think the HID's of yesterday are the best thing going as they pointed to their Niterider HID lights on the shelf. I didn't say much, instead I am gonna show up one day and give them a dose of some Lupine lighting.

    The holder is a combination of a Ram Craddle and a holder (softplate) mady by Softplate. Softplate is a dutch company. You can find more info at www.softplate.nl. Unfortunately the website is dutch only. But if you sent an e-mail in english to info@softplate.nl I am almost sure you will get an answer. Softplate is shipping their products in Europe only. The softplate costs 45. The Ram craddle is around 10 I believe.

    Hey Geoman. What was the change to the Betty 7 from the Betty 6?

    They have more Lumens, right? Anything else? What did they change? Lens, software, LEDs?

    Hi Nick,

    They bumped up the lumens a bit to 1,500 (new LED's as I'm told) but everything else is the same. Hard to fix something that isn't broke... LOL.

    I've got mine set for three levels of brightness which is so cool with LED's. Press the button and cycle through 100% power, 50% power, and 10% power or whatever levels you want. It is completely programmable.

    The Betty is a great light - bar none. You get what you pay for in this instance, for certain.
