    I use the Bontrager Flare DVF. Reasonably priced, works, is visible from a long way off.

    Don't cheap out on your lights.

    And welcome aboard; please tell us you didn't join just for this one question.

    Nite Rider Saber or Bontrager Flare. Both great rear lights. As someone mentioned don’t cheap out on lights.

    Been using a Night Rider Sabre for the last couple years. Very nice light with good battery life and very bright with several strobe patterns.

    I use two rear bike lights in accordance with the theoretical claim that multiple light sources provide better depth perception for approaching motorists.
    The Cygolite has a beam more visible from afar while the NiteRider has better peripheral beam. Both have incorporated, internal batteries, but one charges via micro USB while the other charges via mini USB. On sale, they are relatively affordable and worth the protection (however perceived) they provide. Good luck!

    No. Music is. Noise is not. C'mon, just compare the lyrics for (insert favored deity's) sake.

    Well, duh!!!! Just as art is in the eye of the beholder. Much of what I have beheld does not qualify as art. Others say otherwise, but I don't care. Capiche?

    That was a fun video. Great song and really fun movie.

    @Mikie, a lil' trivia question for you:

    Which two members from the Runaways become successful rocker gals later on?

    Lita Ford is the only one I would consider famous. I think she was more the rocker than Joan...
