limited capacity (battery and storage of GoPro) - only got bits where I turned it on from time to time.

I have Xenon low beam and 2 x Clearwater Krista spotlights (4,000 lumens each) - this was the first serious run that I had given the lights - I was very pleased with them. The Clearwater lights don't have the reach of a really good spotlight (I put it down to the design and the fact that you can't get a good deep reflector behind the light source. That said, the light is very white and has great spread either side and also up into the trees - really good on an unfamiliar windy road at night because you get good coverage regardless of the angle of the bike. If I had my time over, I would spend the extra money and get the Clearwater Ericas which are 6,000 lumens each.

I have a Russell Day-Long seat. People talk about riding 5 hours on these seats, but I don't think its as good as that - I can do 3 hours OK, but usually starting to squirm around a bit by then. So, I don't find it quite as good as what they advertise, but its a whole lot better than anything else that I have tried (like AirHawk cushions, beads, sheepskin seat covers, gel inserts and some other seat mods that I have had done here).

I am up for a new bike next year (a new RT or GS) and will consider the Kontour seat instead (but only if I can convince myself that its as good or better than the Russell - trouble is that reading reviews doesn't help too much because seating comfort is such an individual thing.

I'll post some photos of my set up later.
