I'm still up for the Pines this thursday but can probably do Ticknall next week as well.
Nearly time for lights? Yeah!
If anyone is looking for a cheap light solution check out the following links. They aren't HIDs but they are alright!
I have one of the Lightstars and can bring it with me next ride. I haven't tried the brackets but they are cheap enough to take a risk. You could also zip tie them to your helmet which works well.
and bike mounts...

There are other Cree LED torches on ebay from China but that might be too bigger risk.
The other option is the Hope Vision 1 (Again I can bring one) which is brill if you get the right rechargeables...2500 or higher is a must:

I'd have one Hope over two Lightstars (I think) but the Hope is a bit heavy for helmet mounting although it comes with handlebar and helmet brackets...
Oh dear, there's always something new to buy!
