    Agreed. Where you ride and local driver behavior matter. Headlights are more important to me.

    How are you at desoldering and soldering? I just looked at mine, and it looks like it would be relatively simple to desolder the existing switch from the board. Then you could drill a hole in the...

    To me, $500 buys a "decent" bike and $1,000+ is the lower limit of nice bike territory. Around here, a $1,000 used car may barely run, or at the least has major repair expenses likely in the next...
