LED Accent light on Motorcycles - Do you Like it or Not????

    Let us know your thoughts if you like them - Many states are passing led lighting bills to allow you to ride at night with your bike lit up solid (No strobes)
    I really like them. You have done a great job.

    I have them on my bike also I suggest you check your states laws about color lights before you install as per my post www.cyclefish.com/forum/topic/8/index/132429/1#132535 />

    Only if you like getting pulled over and getting tickets. Accent lights aren't legal on the highways in Iowa.

    I actually just put a few LED lights on Road King for safety, not looks. I added two small light pods in the engine area... one in the back and one in the front. They light up the chrome on the top of the motor and exhaust so I can be seen real well from the side when crossing dark intersections, etc. I also added two 12" white LED strips to the bottom of my saddle bags (actually the rail that the bags sit on. These reflect off the muffler again to bee seen from the side, but they also light the road around the bike making me more obvious from side and rear. And finally two amber LED pods between the bags and rear fender adding more tail lights from the rear.

    I'll have to get a picture at night and post it.

    I agree with what most said. If done correctly they add great night time Viz. But if over done they are a distraction, makes people stare at the lighted object, that they are not sure what it is and forget about the road.

    I know one night when I was in my Tacoma, I saw this blue lighted something down the road coming at me, it was on a road with no street lights and really dark. I am staring at it wondering what the frig is this???? I was so mesmerized by it I did not notice that I was hitting a 4 way stop. Thank goodness there was no traffic, and no cops because I blew that 4 way at 45 mph. Turned out to be a little 2 door, like a Carola or Civic with massive amounts of under body light kits, lights on the grill, under the wheel wells and a few other spots.

    Think I'll just wait until you can get them that change color, flicker and dance along with the music when hooked up to an iPod. Like a light show on wheels.

    I don't like them at all. But you need to do what you won't on your own bike.

    Not a fan but it those LEDs help improve your visibility at night and are not illegal in your state then go for it.
