Hello richsuz,

You could use foglights that are for cars which usually uses halogen H3 bulbs, that's what I used for my XR. I also would suggest installing a separate switch for the foglight.

Cheers!

I have tried car fog lights, not enough spread and H3 is 55W. my 125 can't even handle a 55W H4 alone.
You did not elaborate on the read shield's origin/design.

That 3 day ride looks such hard work.

Here's my latest addition to the XR 200. The need for this vibration/shake/crush/ water proof compact side pannier is to store sensitive and fragile equipment such as tablets, notebooks, beer bottles etc

In the photo above, the quick release levers are stored inside to make it theft proof. A pre cut foam and other foam pads will be laid over it to protect fragile stuff that will be stored in it. Here's the photo below.
