    I'd be wary of their claims for the lights. For example, their highest priced light, the $199, 60 LED, 180W 30" light bar - they say it puts out a "theoretical max lumen" of 198,000 lumens... Problem is the light draws 4.65-4.95A, which means it's closer to 60W (therefore @ 1W per LED).

    Now, even if they used the Cree XHP70.2, which I believe is Cree's brightest LED, which they won't, the theoretical maximum lumen the light can put out is 181 l/W (XHP70.2), so in the above light, 181 l/W x 60 LED's @ 1W = 10860 lumen. Given that's the maximum, it's very likely to be even less than that. And after all that, that's raw lumens, whereas effective lumens will be much less again. Then given the LED's won't be XHP70.2's...

    I think I've got that right.

    No, no you're not @flinders_72 they'll come anyway, surely your calculations can't even be close to correct because the website said it was much more betterer than you reckon with all your fancy number figurin"

    There just like one of those fancy name brand vests but without the price and keeps your torso warm and arms free and would also be good under a jacket. I have one and love it but if you want one buy a size smaller that what you would normally wear

    I had that sinking feeling when they dropped the price of my bike $2K to sell out 2018 models. Imagine the BMW owners sudden heartburn when seeing this. Goodbye resale value....

    Same thing happened to KTM 1190 owners when KTM brought out the 1090 - f#ckers.

    I paid $9200 for my KLX250, about a year later an ex girlfriend went and looked at getting one and they were asking $7200...:baldy
