Post Baja 1000 - Lighting
I'm doing the Baja 1000 next month and was thinking about some helmet lighting. What is everyone using for night riding?

Onya mate that would be awsome icon_thumright
As has been said send Dale a pm and see if he has any left, if not
get on ebay and search for 1000 lumen mountain bike lights and buy 2 of them

PS maybe we should organize a night ride before you go so you can get your eye in icon_thumright

Niterider lights are the best out there I recon, but not cheap. Not sure if they do any dedicated mx helmet mounts, but I'm sure you could find a way to mount their smaller models on the visor or something.

The larger ones are brighter than car headlights by a long shot.
