Most touring occurs in daylight I am sure. However, for various reasons including rain, fog, fighting headwinds resulting in longer riding hours than planned, getting lost and even leaving at zero-dark-thirty to try to avoid the heat of the day, bicycle tourers carry bike lights.
Out of curiosity, what kind of headlight/lights do you use? Not safety reflectors or strips. Lights.
Battery/solar powered or dynamo?
Right now I'm using a cheap, found at a thrift shop for $1 headlight - but I got what I paid for and am looking to replace it.
Oh, and I'm not asking/talking about headlamps (you know, those you strap to your head/helmet)... just bike headlights.
