You need to take the photo with a non-LED light. I can't see the bike!

Since we're bored and talking about lights, check out these bad boys I just installed on my BADB last week. Rigid D2's (LED's)....rated at 2600 lumens a piece. The stock 950 lights just plain suck.

These pics are of the lane on the side of my house.

Stock low beam:


Stock high beam:


Rigid D2's....shazamm!


Front triple clamp mount:




I took it out yesterday afternoon and ran them during the day. I could tell people noticed me (safety reasons...that's how I justified them to my wife). They'll burn retinas of oncoming traffic at night, so only good for solo rides with no other traffic.

Yup. Shadows. Led puts out way more light but the higher the temp the less depth there is. That pic doesn't show it very well but with white light and no shadows its very hard to see shit that you are going to hit.

The good thing about led is you can get way more light for the same watt and most of the time it makes up for the bad color.

Looks like a scene from an auto vs. pedestrian accident. Or a scene where Hickonacrick just plowed another cow on his moto.

The Center for Disease Control has issued a medical alert about a highly contagious, potentially dangerous virus that is transmitted orally, by hand, and even electronically. This virus is called Weekly Overload Recreational Killer (WORK). If you get WORK
from your boss, any of your colleagues or anyone else via any means whatsoever - DO NOT TOUCH IT!!! This virus will wipe out your private life entirely. If you should come into contact with WORK you should immediately leave the premises.


Take two good friends to the nearest liquor store and purchase one or all of these three antidotes - Really Urgent Medicine (RUM), Work Isolating Neutralizer Extract (WINE) or Bothersome Employer Elimination Rebooter (BEER).
Take the antidote repeatedly until WORK has been completely eliminated from your system.


You should immediately forward this medical alert to five friends. If you do not have five friends, you have already been infected and WORK is controlling your life.
Great lighting discussion with one caveat........you're all forgetting the angle of the dangle.....all the secondary lighting is significantly lower than the stock headlights and a helmet light is most directly line of sight oriented......the best side by side comparison would be the newer harcus mask vs the stock incandescent setup.........IMO.......

Last month Todd-Squad set me up with a focus group for side by sides. Was not bad duty and pocketed good cash for about 30 minutes of my opinion. This cash is not traceable by wives!!! Re shoe'd my KTM!!!

The person he set me up with called me today to see if I have friends interested in doing a focus group - can't use me again! This time it is for Classic Rock and they need men between the ages of 38 and 47. If you are interested PM me for details. It is for next week so she needs to fill it immediately.

Not trying to spam this out there - just hoping to put a few bucks in folks pockets for inmate related expenses.... farkles, tires, fuel, etc...


And thank you Todd Squad for last time!
