Thanks for your help.
I bought Jet Starfire Dual (I think that's the name, $250) last year about this time. It's a halogen, two beam system (12 & 20W), NiMH battery, with 5 way switch and handlebar mounted. Last year, I did night rides about twice a week, lasting about 2 hours each. I just started night rides last week.
In a nut shell, the Jet Lights are well designed and perform well. The light seems to be whiter than the halogen lights of my ride buds. I really like the 5 way switch: 6W, 9W, 12W, 20W and 32W of power. The battery run time is more than adequate for me.
I researched other brands and rider reviews all rated Jet fairly high. I believe my system was a mtbr.com "recommended" item. I recommend Jet to those looking for halogen (not HID). The next step up would be an HID light system, which I don't think Jet sells (yet). Regardless, these halogens are plenty bright and the system is well designed.
I may get a helmet mounted system this year. Helmet and handlebar mounted lights have their own pros and cons.
Bottom line - give Jet a serious consideration.
