    Haha right ! I do IBA rides and ride some lonely desert roads in SoCal at night. It's gets soo frickin dark in the middle of the desert is crazy

    I want to see as far down the road as I can and I take speed limits as more of a suggestion than a stead fast rule

    How are the Squadrons alone? I heard they were super bright. Do the Ericas add much to them?

    I wasn't satisfied with the Squadron Pros. They give a lot of light but they threw a sloppy pattern IMO. The combo wasn't throwing enough light down the road for my tastes. I have the driving combo (1 spot & 1 flood). I think im going to order another spot lens and change them to both spots.

    The Erica's are much better than the Squadrons IMO but they are also about $300 more so........

    This is the best combo I have ever had. I have had Baja Designs, Rigid Industries, Clear Water, etc. I am finally satisfied with this combo.

    Dave rocks, debt is evil :lol3

    Just paid cash for a 14 with 10K miles. My question..is the windscreen cross bar strong enough to mount a Garmin 660 to it? And who makes a clamp on mount?

    I use the braces on my bike as well. They work wonders even without a GPS.

    I'll third that recommendation for the braces. The GPS is almost unreadable without them.

    Ordered! Yesterday I went to DMV to register the S10 after making an appointment days ago. Get in on time and bam..." system down" come back later. One more fine example of how screwed up this state is. CA DMV is a nightmare.
