    I'm too nice....I should have taken pictures of you all sprawled out with your foot in the fire. Instead I pulled your foot out before any major damage could occur. :lol3

    The top two are a couple knockoff Chinese made LEDs. I mounted them up high on the handlebars. They put out allota light, but the mounts are crap. Ask OMB why he switched his out that same morning...

    I really like the TrailTech headlight,, the high beam puts out a good bright glow, but the high beam sits too low... It's partially blocked by the fender bag.

    Still imagining the perfect light setup...

    1 of the days a few of us did the 70 mile loop from Parkdale over to Mosier for an Umpqua ice-cream, then around through Hood River & back, just in time for the last of the BBQ'ed pig. Great ride, here is Scott ripping along.
