my buddy has a shop in Anaheim
...while there I checked my back brake pads with a mirror
and HIS flashlight ...
I was "wow'd" by the intensity of the light and it made
checking the pads very easy.

His was a "Stinger C4" (140 lumens).
...see my other post about them:
http://gl1800riders.com/forums/showthread.php?t=210280

I told him I'd be ordering one as soon as I got home
but after posting and asking for more info I may get
the Fenix LD20 (180 lumens)
.... mostly because it runs on two AA batteries and
the Stinger is rechargeable
(rechargable may be better for the shop but no advantage on the road)

I've got few LED lights now but none of them compare
to the Stinger C4.

Find a Geico insurance agent and get one of their hand crank, rechargable LED lights they give out. We got a couple at the St. Louis RV show. Small, fairly good light and never needs batteries.

Since someone mentioned the Stingers......

They give us these things at work. We get the one with a second switch in the bottom. I don't generally have much use for it at work so I put it in the bike.

When I went to use it for examining an area on the bike, I found that at the close distance I was working the light was much too bright to be useful.

Bare in mind that the designer's intent for these things was to fully illuminate an object some distance away.

I got a couple of them from the site below (I have no affiliation with the site) and love them. I have one plugged into the accessory socket that I installed in the trunk which I use as a trunk light. I also bought a Fenix L1D in case I need something brighter.
