    Don't understand why that wouldn't be allowed. If your not impersonating a police car whats the harm?

    In most cases, they are given in the form of a "fix-it" ticket. A driver would have the opportunity to correct or remove the violation by showing to a police officer or motor vehicle department that the issue was fixed.

    I have to say though, they do make any bike look awesome. [​IMG]

    FYI, anyone putting them on your bike, make sure you hook it directly to your battery, and not tied into your wiring system. You'll mess with the EHC, because of the frequencies they put out.

    At dusk or later these do look pretty nice. Not too much into the rapid change of colors etc.. But a solid glow in the early evening looks pretty pimp.

    In Seattle you can't ride with them turned on "legally" no matter what time of day which seems ridiculous to me....but then again nobody asked me when they were writing the law.

    My bike came with them and I'm glad I removed them since I discovered poor connections, some LEDs were burned out & uneven illumination. Some bikes look ok with them but they aren't for me. I like simplicity and knowing my battery is up to par for starting a motor! I also believe the bike on its own should speak for itself, not holiday lighting.

    Well Ed thats one of the many great option a person can have in this country... You can like a little country or a little Rockin Roll.. You can like stock classic cars or custom classic with all the shine, deep dish wheels and cherry paint jobs. It's up to you. If those lights don't work for you, you did the right thing I guess by removing them. I installed mine correctly, they do what I want 6 million options, or nothing at all.
    Also my bike does stand on its own as it's turning 14 this year with 17 thousand miles on it. (I bought it 4 years ago it had 6 on it) and you will be hard pressed to find a finger print on it when it's thundering down the highway. Gloss black and lots of polished chrome and people digging the bike wherever its parked.
    in the future if I do get tired of the lights or they stop working I will likely remove them also but until then, it will be Red White and Blue on the 4th of July for me... Happy Holidays Ed

    One of the coolest things I did when I installed the on my 03, was drill through my backer plate, and put one inside the belt area.

    I like it--Its creative and provides a unique look that makes it more appealing and interesting (IMO). Customization lets others see what's possible through the eyes of people who possibly see the world through a different "lens" . Good stuff
    Thanks for sharing

    If led lights under the bike get you ass, think what LED strip on your man-parts would do

    Give a new meaning to a
    "Glow stick" that's for sure. Seems like it would be a lot less painful than a piercing too... and see ya coming (easy now) from a mile a way.. Hope everybody is having a happy hump-day:cool::chopper:

    I used xk glow on my 06 mastiff. they are controlled by my phone and they look great, easy to install and to hide the wires. Yes the kits can be a little pricey, but unmatched warranty, customer service. I've had mine on my bike for close to 5 years now. If i have any trouble i can call Andy and he will ship replacement parts first then I can send mine back later. I trust this product so much I have them on my bikes, truck and boat. You can do multiple colors and you have different zones that can do different colors and patterns (light shows) and the best feature no one talks about is the find my bike feature Built in GPS tracker.
