for off road riding the light bar is better because of its wider throw of light, though in the i cant really use it because of that reason :)

I did. Though I saw the same thing at walmart the other day, but twice the price. Some advice; the sticky adhesive is not up to the task and will fail a couple of days in. Use something stronger.

high beam and light bar

though it doesnt look like much of a difference in the pic the light bar throws the same ammout of light as the combined hid kits in terms of brightness and visable light distance, where it out does them is the spread of light. this makes it much easier to see the sides of the road and avoid those potential furry speedbumps .
That's pretty wicked.

So I wanted a sun shade for my Zumo after years of dealing with it.

I hacked the lid of a cheap plastic file card box, and used a single packet of Sugru to attach it to the Zumo.

Fits perfectly, and still have easy access to the external keys.

It's funny. It was just some shitty cheapo plastic box that held notecards. The lid was shaped correctly but too wide, so I removed a section and held it all together (well I might add) with the Sugru.

So I went on Ebay to see if I could fid something similar, and lo and behold...the exact same piece of shit box!

It worked....

700 plus miles over various passes in Colorado. The loop was stressed on a couple of drops but held up to the test. Could use a little reinforcement in the legs and some access zippers. I will use it again.....
