Twinkle Lights Concours 14

I picked up these LED lights from over in the UK from a place called BikeVis.

I don't know how well they actually help me stick out but I figure every little bit helps. The total install took me about 20 minutes. I do plan on running them to a different power source, currently I have them on the AUX power in the dash but I figure it can wait until I tear the bike apart again.

All I did was drill a couple of holes and they stick right on covering the hole. Then I ran the wiring up to the AUX and plugged them in. I had to remove the windshield and one side cover to access the wiring.

Some day I will have someone stand on the road and watch me come from a distance to see if it actually makes a difference.

The video doesn't show the twinkling action as well (I assume frame rate) but you can see how the warm up and then kick in with the twinkling.

I have said the word twinkle enough for one day.
