that is awesome!

Beautiful setup!

But, if I may offer one criticism (or, more of a question)....aren't the headlights to right and left pointed a little too much directly down to the street? It makes a wonderful effect for the photos, but shouldn't those be pointed more forward right and forward left to be more effective while riding?

I love the overall effect. Very cool. :thumb:

It does look very cool, but have to agree with varuscelli. The rearmost headlights seem to be lighting up road that you've already ridden over.

yeah, the rear headlights are positioned for effect in the pics. They are very easily adjustable while riding and Sara moves them all over the place actually. The front two are plenty of light, the rear two are mostly just for extra cool factor :) Putting them to the side like above though is kind of fun though because it makes kind of a "barrier" around the bike.

I figured that as much thought as you obviously put into configuring the lights, you MUST have been just playing for photo effect (and it does look cool with the barrier effect). And like you said, I bet it's also fun to play with while riding. I'd love to see that in person. ;)
