I am lovin' this weekend. Some strange warp in time has been allowing me to get caught up on work around the house, so I've had extra time to just ride around with the kids, ride around by myself, ride down to the store, ride for no reason, etc. And I feel better about it with the new batteries I put in the lighting system.

I'm just one happy camper.

It's a 6 volt lantern battery LED flashlight (3 leds in molded plastic shiny reflector. It's really easy to change the battery too.

I mounted it with a $1 U-bolt over some electrical tape on the handle bar. It stays put and works well enough.

You can also mount it to a cheap front rack with a single bolt and wingnut. It weighs a couple pounds, but runs a lot longer than the old 6volt gas bulb lights.

Great idea, uh, how do you mount it?

Hi happy,

Or maybe you can with a little more work mount it this way,with an on off switch and battery back in the rack.

Not to smart on navigating these web pages, BUT... I did screw up a fresh frame (coaster brakes), HS engine (sitting in my garage), I can figure most. I just would like 2 request some pointers. I'm down w/40/MPH, did it on my 2 stroke. Short spoke, run it rich... I'm looking 4 fresh w/4/stroke, less tighting...

That's cool, but I like mine better. It's easy to take on and off, waterproof, and already has a switch.

Hi guys, technically it was Saturday but we (CTripps and I) took the trailer to the Grocery store again. Used a different route than the last time. The first trip did not take into consideration the many stops needed for lights and short but steep inclines. The trailer on my bike since it's geared for it, loaded is way different than unloaded let alone without it (the trailer) entirely. Needless to say it's a very steep learning curve. The B***h bit me.
We were taking a different route home lot less traffic and mostly flat when we pulled into a parking lot to get onto a less steep way home and I was startled by the double speed bump in the entrance and didn't take the exit wide enough. Tipped over the engine wailing away and the muffler got me on the inside of my calf.
Pretty bad burn but I'll know better next time.

yea burning yourself is no fun sorry to hear that

i have quite a few from things (mostly welding) and even the worst one on my arm from a hot 3inch wide plate i was useing as a ground healed over but one of the most painfull heals was my road rash from my crash 2 months ago it covered about 1/3 of my calf and it was worse than the 14 stitches in my face(6 inside 8 outside) i have a scar to remind myself of the person who ran me off the road (then didnt stop) all im saying is safety is important with M.A.B.'s

but feel better soon and maybe make a heat shield just so it dosent happen again thats how i do things if i get hurt by something i try to prevent it from happening again or at least lower the risk


on another note today i just went on a quick blast around on my bike to have a little release it keeps me from loosing my mind completely
