How often are you riding at night? I ride my bike nearly everyday, commute nearly daily. But can't remember when I rode at night... Maybe couple of months ago.
Oh. I agree. Not worth 800 to me either. I try to never ever ride at night. It would be welcomed though if I had to in an emergency or something, but not for 1/4 price of a bike.
That's the reason I said they will have to come down in the future. Probably be a little while, and Chinese clones will be everywhere for $100.
Maybe then.

I like that headlight but it doesn't seem to be anything amazingly better and not for that price.

I'd be concerned with the durability of it, and how easy it is to replace parts, It seems to me with the constant on\off of the cornering lights you'd be having a lot of issues with the bulbs\led's

Have you ever seem a burned out LED?
I can't recall any.

As a matter of fact a whole floor of them in my office building just this week. Of course that was from a power surge. Now if you are talking the led strips on the backs of pickups, yeah I've seen a lot of them that don't work right either. I was meaning the more complex you make something the crappier it is to have to repair it. You figure that thing has to have some type of motion detection, circuitry boards, multiple lights + the $800 price tag. So if it does break can you tear it apart and fix it yourself or are you going to have to send it back and wait 4-6 weeks or eat the $800?

Look, I'm not selling these danm things!
I just thought it was cool.
As I said, I think I'll wait til they come down at least 700% before I try one.
