    cheapo Chinese Magicshine and Magicshine copies/ripoff lights I bought 7-8 years ago are still going strong to this day and shine as bright as ever. The $50


    I use one of these lights and it's great!

    Do you use the diffuser lens in the Brighteyes 1600? I tried it last night and felt that it cut the brightness down a bunch, but widened the beam out. The way it secures to bars, routing the wires to compact battery, and length of life make it a decent choice in my opinion. Thanks

    I have it in now, but am thinking about taking it out for the reasons you mention.

    Night photos are hard enough but I’m the worst. Here’s @pperrelle heading to where I’ve stopped for a rattler sauntering across the trail after 5:30 pm for some reason. He was in no hurry (the rattler or Paul it seemed ) and never rattled at us.

    There are rules for riding closed trails at night. Do not ride as a group. When getting near the trail head go dark. Nobody can see you so you are safe. If somebody does see you AKA "Mr. Ranger" douse your lights and take your time to escape. I find it a real blast watching people with flash lights looking for me. Don't be a dick and turn your light on for a moment just to piss them off, they are already pissed that they cannot see you.
    Happy poached trails in the dark
