    Night Riding Newb -Exposure Lights

    So I've made the commitment and now have an Exposure Diablo and Joystick. And I have both handlebar and helmet mounts. Which light should go in which location? And should I consider a Diffuser to spread the beam pattern on one of them?

    Thanks!

    personally I put the lightest/smallest light on the helmet. Making it the less powerfull of the set up. But is really on needed under hard turning to see through the turns and rolling over stuff at slower speeds.

    Yeah... The lighter, smaller one on the helmet.
    I have a Diablo on my helmet and a Toro on my bars. Couldn't be happier.
    I like turtles

    I've been using a Joystick light on my helmet for a few years now and it has been great. Both of your lights would be fine on a helmet seeing as they are both very light. I suggest you use the light with the wider beam on your bars and the tighter beam on your helmet. As far as using the diffuser, if it is the one from the Exposure website, that looks like it will make seeing the trails more difficult. It might work well if you need your light to double as a camp light though.
