I do not like the idea of huge lamps stuck on the side of my bike though. Having said that there are small lamps that appear a little more discrete, I'm just not sure how effective they are.
Does anyone have any experience with the smaller auxillary lamps ?
I agree with MikeT about visibility. I am using the Hella 1400 that I bought from http://www.adventurersworkshop.com
. They cost $39 plus shipping. And they are very small. I think they are 55 watt halogens and I have them mounted on HP tank guards/bars. Tho they don't add a lot to "lay down light" they do add to your presence. The bright blob above the headlamp is an "ADV" sticker that I got from the same people. Was amazed at how reflective it is. The kit comes with everything you need.
