a higher watt bulb puts out more light
but ofter fail faster because of heat & vibration.

daniel stern recomended it!

jeff @ procycle has some nice inexpensive brackets for optional driving lights http://www.procycle.us/bikepages/dr650.html#electrical

deka (eastern penn, a us company) makes aweseome sealed agm batterys.
this place sells it for less

bike doesn't drag when startign w/ this battery and agm technology is robust.
tpi does sell upgraded battery cables for a cure to slugish cranking, but they are pricey and this battery takes care of it anyway.
