Default Helmet flashlight??

I think it would be cool to have a LED flashlight mounted to my helmet. Anyone know of any you can buy that light the road ahead of you decently or has anyone made their own flashlight mount?

Maybe a bicycle helmet light you can adapt to yours.

Like Brien said, a bicycle light is good. I use a Cygolite Expillion mounted on my helmet for extra light in the dark months of winter. It's LED and USB rechargeable and lasts for hours and hours on a charge.
Helps me see through the turns and off the side of the road, where a moose may be lurking. When I encounter oncoming traffic I look down and off to the right a little, so I don't blind oncoming trafffic(of which there is little, btw).
It really shines (pun intended) when you turn off the bike in complete darkness.

Holy crap! Spec-ops!! Might also be able to fab/mount a couple of the generic strap-on (get your mind outta the gutter) headlamps from local big box (Lowe's, Home Depot) stores?
Yeah; call me cheeeap.
