Headlight

Here is an old "hardhat headlight" from my airboating days. They work great because you can "see" where you are going... =)

Wouldn't it be great if we could do this to our helmets? Maybe not a huge lamp, but something you can "aim"...

I've seen something similar with LD Rally riders. Much easier to open and read a map or route sheet if you have both hands free and a good light source at the same time. It does look a bit funky, but function over form works.

Some people see the gas tank as half empty. Some see it as half full. All I care is that I know where the next tankful is coming from...
