I primarily use mine as a emergency or task / camp light and have ran them as aux lights when in the back country.
for a primary bike mounted light I would recommend another option like the NXG LED

or the NXG Prime

Nope, this is perfect. The reason I asked is that some lights toggle between power modes by turning off and on while others always start on a medium power when first turned on and you have to hit a switch to run on high.

With this light I can:
  1. Have an electrical lead powered on high beam and mount the light on the motorcycle turn signal post for an on and off road auxillary light to boost the bike's headlamp,
  2. Mount on my motorcycle helmet for the same use with the beam pointed where I'm looking,
  3. Un-mount and plug into the Li battery for around camp and emergencies,
  4. Strap it on my mountain bike handlebars or helmet with the Li battery for night races,
  5. Strap it on my road bike handlebars or helmet with the Li battery for night rides and fall commuting,
  6. Strap it on my ski helmet for off-piste night skiing,
  7. Use the head mount for night XC skiing, walking the dog, hikes, climbs, hunting zombies, or whatever.
I think this may be the ultimate adventure light. Nice design at a great price.
