You may like these then, they're a direct replacement for those bulbs should you wish to reduce power consumption: LED MR16 Spotlight 12V 4W (440 Lumen - 50 Watt Equivalent) $2.60
http://www.amazon.com/LED-MR16-Spotl.../dp/B0051SRKVI

Here's two on my tad for an example, first pic difference in base sizes (LED on left & halogen on right), second & third pics are the two LED bulbs mounted, low beam (bottom) is a warm flood & top is a cool spot, both 440 lumen/50w equivalent @ only 4w draw (each) so it's a total of 880 lumen at only 8 watts for just about $5;



...and they don't get hot

It opened for me, I was looking for places I recognize. Panama City is the closes beach to us here in Georgia so we have been there a lot. The picture below is what I do at the beach.

Nice video, Dave. And I don't think it was that rough. I've seen a lot worse. And the reception you got from the guys there was pretty cool.

I also think its a good video Super Duper Dave...........LOL!

nice engine noise instead of some funky song playing that drowns out the ride like some of the videos we find on the Tube.

Ever since I have first seen your bike I have been curious about how it handles with that small front tire, but judging from the video it looks like it handles pritty stable, again nice video... looks like you had a great time and got some nice positive feedback from the on-lookers, some like our bikes and some just roll their eyes.... I figure the eye rollers only do it on the outside because of their ignorance and arrogance, but on the inside they really wish they could ride it......LOL! A true biker and/or motor sports enthusiast is always game for anything with wheels and a motor in my opinion.

Details please. What's your setup?
LOL no, my odometer rolled over to 100km

I decided to take it to my cottage today, about 50km away, in the rain.. Was fun, but I might have ****ed my rear bearing up, not sure if it's screwed or just loose, didn't look at it!
