I like that.
Can you give us some specs on that?
I'd rather have a god almighty headlight than spot lights hanging off my bike you know.
Can you do a write up on the install and show a comparison photo of old light -vs- new.
I'll buy you a crate of virtual beer!!

Might as well write it up here. I suspect a lot of interest.

A couple low dollar mods:

High fender ( STR Ebay front fender, sx85 fork guards, brake line guides)

Delrin Skid Plate addition (little more protection for cheap)

Mirrors on hand guards ( blind spot 3" with bolt added for mounting)

The WP stickers might do it but I'd recommend some sort of covering where the brake lines/plastic keepers rub the fork tubes or something around the brake lines. If not, they will rub and not just coating. They will make "divets" in your forks. I did about 3k or so with a high fender and didn't notice until my arrival home what had happended. No real damage but it will happen over time. Surprisingly the lines themselves had no damage/marks to speak of.

I have extra clear vinyl sheets that i'll use if the rubbing gets worn in a spot..
I'm also on the hunt for some type of plastic tube that I could cut and slip over the lines in those spots to cut down on friction and rub wear.. something made out of teflon or delrin or any other slippery plastic.
