I'm sorry, I know there have been a few of these threads recently. I have read them and plenty of others online.
I'm new to night riding so would really appreciate some input on the 2 lights I'm choosing between.
Magicshine MJ-872 1600 Lumen
Smudge's XML Light 1000 Lumen
Both look great but I am new to night riding and I can only afford one light right now.
The MJ-872 seems to have a wider beam and the XML narrower but further reaching.
There are other differences such as price (£20), digital battery with the MJ-872 but I am most interested in which light would be the best choice for a main light.
Also if you were only using one light would you go for helmet or on the bars mounting?
What do you guys reckon?
