Everyone seems so concerned about mechnical situations at night so here's my plan. I strap my back-up light to my helmet and leave it there during the week. I'll usually turn it on in blinkie mode but more than anything I value its backup role, and, as light to deal with mechnical problems. It points where I look, after all. In another thread I got the idea to strap my camping headlight to the helmet too, which I might start to do, or I may simply toss it in my backpack as a back-up to the back-up.

FYI, my my primary lights, which I and some others picked-up from Performance for a little over $100 with the ubiquitous 20% off coupons and "Team Performance" (buyer's club) points. Best bang for the buck, IMO.

Best of luck with your night riding!
