I remember lights from 12 years ago...all Halogens, and with only a TurboCat Head lamp you could squeeze a 2.5 hour ride in following a dull yellow glow about 10 feet in front of you.

Today's lights and power systems are so much lighter and brighter (and cheaper) than what we used to ride it is absolutely stunning.  Always good to run two lights in case one gets broken or the battery craps out on you.   Nite Rider is great, but so are all the other brands (I'm using exposure lights, I like them a lot).   A lot of guys I ride wit use those super cheap ones (I can't remember the brand name, but they're everywhere)..they had a recall about a year ago, but still, they seem to work really well for less than half the cost of a nite riders. light n motion, etc.

LED's have really upped the whole bike light game.
