Another plug

This post is another plug for my spanky E6 headlight -- not only is it incredibly bright and able to be powered without reliance on batteries, it also provides an incredibly focussed beam on the road. What this means for me (apart from the obvious), is that it doesn't disturb any of the other night-time scenery I get to see on my rides. Tonight this meant I was privy to the entrancing sight of the moonlight through the Piccabeen palms (or Bangalows if I were writing this south of Tweed Heads) of the rainforest at Austinville. On other nights it's allowed me unobstructed views of glow worms. Expensive, but worth every cent.

In other news, there seems to be a particularly high level of tension on the roads in the last few days. Granted, the Gold Coast isn't the most friendly place in the country (quite the opposite actually), but even allowing for this, the tension has been higher than usual. Of course, my arrogance allows me to transcend all of this virtually anytime I feel like it, but one does wonder what seems to be motivating all this aggro lately. Perhaps it's just the warmer weather, or maybe they've been up all night watching the cricket -- suckers! Well, if all the cletoids are so upset about the result, it might pay to barrack for England even after Shane Warne retires -- assuming that anyone can actually be bothered to sit through six hours of test cricket. I certainly have better things to do.

Who makes the E6? I have a Jet Lite i6 and love it (HIDs are great!). I have found that one of my batteries is starting to die :(

The E6 is designed to work with the Schmidt hub dynamo. As a package they are extremely efficient, but similarly expensive! In North America, I believe the distributor is Peter White Cycles. Check out for more information.
