Headlights

Man I pass a guy going the opposite direction from me about 3 times a week and he has a double headlight set up that will sear your retinas. I'm gonna have to turn around sometime and ask him what they are. Hopefully he won't think I'm trying to rob him or anything but man those things are really bright. I thought my 15 watt nite rider was bright, shoot its a candle compared to these things he has.

Last fall, I switched from my old 15W halogen to a Dinotte 800L. After riding a few weeks, a motorcyclist pulled up next to me at a red light and asked what kind of light I had. He said he was impressed with how powerful it was. Never got that reaction with my halogen light.

It could be the NiteRider Mini Newt Dual XL. I have those. I often get motorists commenting on it during the day on how they saw it from a mile or so away. Other riders often comment going the other way.
