Chopped the SV mounts back a bit, drilled 2 holes in each side and mounted to the existing DR fork mounts.

Much better light, also I managed to fit all the cabling inside the shell.

Do you know how much watts the headlight draws? What wattage bulb?

Lol. My bad!

It's a homade concoction using 3 model 60 LED lights from ADVmonster.

http://stores.intuitwebsites.com/hst...off/Detail.bok

3600 lumens each while drawing only 2.4 amps per light. Running them with a dimmer so low beam is approximately 30%, and high beam kicks up to 100%. Finishing up adding another 2 this weekend with yellow protective lenses for a total of 5. Shouldn't be able to out ride them in pitch black.

Spring time at Dishon stream, Israel

From last week.

Since last friday, any vehicle access to the vally is forbidden due to natural preservation purposes - these might be last (legitimate..) dirtbike pics from a beautiful place.














Any "Instagramish" effect was unintentionaly created by the water-resitsting plastic wrap on the phone/camera...

It's a Moka pot, an ingenious Italian invention! Small enough to be carried in your tail bag, large enough to fill those two glasses with fresh coffee.


Cheers,
Amit

Mirrors are from Highway Dirt bikes. Unfortunately you need to use their whole set up for the mirrors to work as they're proprietary. Although I must say their kit is the best I've seen. Check them out!
