I remember my first night ride when my magicshine battery fully discharged unexpectedly. [Gasp] [Darkness] I had been returning home using a distant MUP that runs through unlighted areas for long straight stretches. It was INSANE riding with no light at even ~15 mpg, wondering what sort of animal (deer?, possum, fox) would run in front of me. It was an adrenaline rush, though.
Now, I have doubly redundant backups, just in case. At least I'll have some light by which to navigate...
