Auxiliary lighting

What are people's experience with them and what recommendation. I like the Baja 2 and the rigid but out of my price range so any help. I have also looked at barging basement but don't trust them to be weather resistant.

I wanted to look into getting some too. The trouble I have had is I would like them to have a flood beam and not a spot beam. It seems the ones which are more in budget are all spot beams and like you I am not too sure on the reliability or resistance to the wet of the cheaper Chinese made ones. Having said that the more expensive ones are probably made in China on behalf of the companies anyway haha

I have seen some review's that compare the Chinese budget box of four for $20 then bought some rigid and Baja 2 pro. The build quality showed but I can't warrant £200+ for a light.

You could try a 12 volt LED security lights , a higher power one may have the same distance as a normal headlight. The newer ones with the single yellow phosphor dot LED are best and will use far less power than a filament ( use 10 headlamps instead of two for the same current draw ,from a distance at night you'll look light a monster truck!) and maybe far less vibration prone.

Personally I use a cycle light mounted on my fork. I have it aimed down towards the road so it dosen't blind everyone. One of the flaws of 125 electrics means when I break my headlight dips slightly so I like having a separate unit.

That's not a bad shout that! How much extra light do you find it gives you?

Quite a bit actually I'll see if I have a a bit off footage with and without the light. I know I have some with it. Just having that low and the full beam higher than that lights to road up
