Got a P60 drop-in from Manafont that has a Samsung 3535 LED. The LED is pretty much the same as a Cree XP-G. Mini review here:

Great choice,I have a set of Michelin Pilot Sport HPX on my Suzuki Bandit 1200. They are awesome tires, they stick like glue on the dry, work awesome in the rain and last a very long time. Some of the best sport bike tires I have ever had and I have tried them all.

 

Good tyres, both sets. However, don’t go that step further and get the Michelin Pilot Race tyres for the roads. They are the best tyres ever when up to temperature, but have less than no grip when cold. I almost binned it in a carpark doing 5mph because the tyres were stone cold.

Living on the wet coast, of Canada I don’t dare consider anything that doesn’t work in the cold and wet..kellyLaughing

I hear ya Kelly. Same in the uk, but I was a little optimistic regarding the up and coming summer that year…

Where in Canada? I’ve always wanted to visit Vancouver


About 1 hour from Vancouver,it was raining some today ,but I got a 2 hour ride in

I received the “32 pc MICRO PRECISION SCREWDRIVER SET w/ T4 T5 T6 Mini Torx, Hex, Flat, “ for $8.99 + shipping. I got it on ebay and it was shipped from the U.S.

I worked for the knives that I have and will work for opening up my watches too I believe.

I also got an “emergency fire starter” for $5 from ebay as well. This is for camping and is basically a block of magnesium with an attached scraper and a spark rod. I tried it out on some dryer lint and it worked well. There is a little technique required (just takes a little practice).

A match works too Smile but for $5 this is nice to have along as well.

Got a Roche F12 sand/yellow colour, with Sanyo unprotected battery, & holster from Intl Outdoors. Waited patiently for teh battery to charge, now need to wait for the dark. Nice light, with reverse clicky, memory, neutral.

Also ordered few other things, which I was surprised to see, since the package had either split open, or been opened. There was a hole in the top, but the split rings & rubber switch covers were all still there. So I’m a happy bunny.

Those Roches look really good. I think I want one..

Do you have other small 18650 lights to compare it with? Would you post a photo with it next to say UF2100?

I will do this for sure when I get home..from what I can tell it’s about the same size as the 2100..+/- a few mm..very very close..also a tad longer than my sc600

Pick up this gun mount at Solarforce. I have to say that I’m disapointed with it as the mechanism that attaches itself to the rails is a spring loaded pin and it’s not strong enough to support the weight of the torch. Hense, the torch wobbles loose. Not something you want to fail on you when it’s an all out zombie attack~! To fix this I think I will have to tap in a set screw or something to modify it. I wish SF would have better pictures and description of their product. I guess I could have contact Jo for more details before I ordered it to think of it. Anyways be warned if you were planning on buying this.

Product Name Solarforce 25mm QD Multiposition mount for Surefire 6P 9P G2
Model Number Mount & Bike Mount-M-013

@okwchin - neat on both counts but if the glasses are Bodum you need to be careful.  They are nowhere as strong as claimed and are actually rather fragile.  Also, i haven't necessarily felt that they keep drinks colder/hotter for,longer than regular mugs despite the double-walls.  They do look very cool though.

Is that a 1 mode or 6 mode?

I have a 6 mode version and I’m afraid to put 14500 in it, it will almost certainly fry the driver in a 6 mode version.
