LED's make an unbelievable difference! - myplace 46 - 08-14-2007

here is a pic with the normal light bulbs in the right side accent lights and the new LED's in the left side. I did not do anything else to the lights. not only are they much brighter, they changed color from purple to blue! Confusedhock:

below is a shot with the other three changed out. it's starting to get dark out. also the two on the lower outside corners of the bag rails are Led's. I got these from Jim (rvtech)

caution. it may be illegal to show blue lights on the front or rear of a vehicle in your area! otherwise..Cool 8)

Yeah, it is nice looking but check with the local auth. or call the FHP to make sure they are legal. I don't think they are. One nice thing about them though,, I'd bet a dollar against a donut ya wouldn't have a problem with tailgating cagers!! Especialy with a pulse modulator!!! Confusedhock:

yeah, I'm pretty sure they are too! but, I thought I'd take a chance till I got stopped. and I carry a set of wire cutters so maybe he'd let me go if I plead ignorance and cut the wires right then? Tongue

Yeh, then watch the cop give you a ticket for having lights on your bike that don't work :lol:

I am so Happy I live here in Ky.

I would hate to have light color laws.
handlebar height laws, or any of those other communist commands they call safety laws.

I say allow people to customize, add the color lights.
Give us a break.

Here we can even have blue parking lights on our cars if we want,
blue or any other color clearance lights on our trucks, front or rear.

Yeah, but they sure hate speeders in Kentucky, especially out of state speeders. If we ever sit down for a coffee Jim remind me to tell you how I know first hand. :lol:

Yes, They are almost as tough on traffic violations and tractor trailer laws as ohio.

They will flat lay the fines to ya if they catch ya.

I dont make a habbit of speeding as our speed limit on the interstates is 70, and the back roads are a bit dangerous with all the wildlife, farm equipment, and bits of coal from the coal trucks laying about.

I also like the fact that we never have to get our cars or trucks inspected here in Kentucky. I know inspections is proberly a good thing but glad we do not have to do it all the same. Big Grin
