    need help with my Blackburn X8

    My wonderful boyfriend got me the Blackburn X8 for my birthday. I haven't had the opportunity to use them yet, but I already have a few questions about it.
    2 lights and 1 battery. Is one supposed to be on the handlebars and one on my helmet? I don't like the idea of my head being attached to my bike. Other options?
    So do I put them both on the handlebar? If so, I'll need another light for my helmet. Any suggestions for a decent helmet-mounted light for me?
    The options out there are daunting for a night-time newb!
    I love riding my bike!

    Both on the bars. Also, consider searching for the thread that details how to upgrade them to be brighter.

    As far as a helmet light, lots to choose from. Personally I'd go with one of the "torches" from someplace like dealextreme.
    Depends on how much you want to spend really.

    I have the same light set.
    I belive it is ment to have both on the bars.
    you could also have one helmet and on bars using the longer cord for helmet
    and shot cord for bars.
    Something you may want to check is the lights them self.
    look at the lens one should look smooth and one should look honey combed.
