Ted I used the Baja lights on my bike and yes they a great. But lots $$$$$

My team mate used these which fitted in fine to the HDB tower and a 1/4 of the price and there light output is good enough.

If you look at Paul's homepage I'm bike 77 with the Baja's and Damian is 46 with the Cree lights.

From what Damian told me the were a little bit to skinny but some spacers sorted that out easy enough.

Cheers Ben.

I used a set of projectors, that was a lot cheaper too but also gives me a proper dipped beam. Not sure if you have to pass some sort of MOT compatibility test but I wanted to be compliant just in case.
I think I posted a picture on the HDB thread in the vendor section.

The triple mounts are 1/4" and have no problem holding all the weight of lights and nav gear.

Slightly off the office tower subject but what handle bars do you have mounted up with that top clamp system? They look sweet.

Maybe unrelated but where can you get the rallye type bar ends like in Dakar?

Talking about sth like that
http://www.twistedthrottle.com/barkb...ar-end-weights

or that?
http://www.vibranator.com/dirt_bikes_s/22.htm

If it is to reduce vibrations, HDB makes a hodden one with so far the best results from what I have tested.

There is a tablet out there that does road book navigation via PDF files. Thinking of an all in one device up there lol.
Great work wish I had the money for stuff.
Here's an iPad mini I was testing an RB app on, ran it for a while. Did a great job of moving out of the way when I went down.





This has cellular and standalone GPS which was needed for the app, don't know if most tablets out there have that.

Hey Ben

Yes to all that, the BD Squadrons are pricey, but IMHO the best, if you're not riding much at night, then overkill. We'll be making an adapter for ADVMontser style lights that would be much cheaper solution for those not doing much night work.

Dimitri is right on that, and I love my Flexx bars, but will be switching back to the standard style guards, those proto's transferred too much impact force to those pricey bars.

As for the GPS Garmin makes a blue tooth one that should adapt to almost and tablet that has blue tooth. So it does not even need to be plugged In or close.

As for the lights I have the advmoster ones. The rear heat sink unscrews where the bracket is. I cut a price of aluminum bigger then the light. Then used a hole saw the size of the heat sink. Drilled 4 holes in the corners of the aluminum and then used thick wall gas line as spacers to hold it off the faring. It is hard to explain and is kinda a hack job but works lol. Should be able to do something like that with your setup. I have an old trail tech X2 light that I used for it, tool out the old lights.
