    Update: Litemat is sold pending payment-- though the Snapgrid is still available separately. $300 originally, I'll take $200 here. Light use.

    Aputure C300D still available.

    Minor point, but the right rigging can make a big difference. Vs. a regular stand, setting up a crossbar to hold your M18 directly over the bike can let you get your light much closer to the bike...

    Wouldn't use them for everything, but I quite like the look of these--modern sharpness and geometric correction, but the flare reduces the clinical quality that I sometimes dislike in Sigmas. That...

    I believe the heavy backlight and the negative fill can help. The other problem, though, is that you want your subject silhouetted against a brighter environment-- and if you lower your exposure in...

    Tough question, but I think it depends at least partially on what niche you're working in-- or want to work in.
