Dinotte 200L lenses

I plan to run dual 200L's on my handlebars. I travel dark county roads. Should I go with two standard lenses of one standard and one wide lense?

Standard. It is already fairly wide, and 2 would give you plenty wide coverage.

Agreed, I use mine on trails only but you'd get plenty of width with the standard and dual, and longer throw as well. Love Mine...

I had a pair of the 5W model which only came in wide. The overlap between the two in the center of the spread was nice and there was enough off to the sides I could easily make evasive maneuvers.

I traded those in on a pair of 200Ls, back when they only came in standard. They're brighter and have a longer throw. I like that I have a wider bright spot in the center, but have to be careful with the aim so that they don't overlap too much or not at all.
