I am looking for some LED lights to go on the sides of the Swing and trailer to increse the visibility and to add Bling. Does anyone have some good sources to purchase from where the price is reasonable. All the ones that I have seen seam to be priced very high and large in size.

The Knight Rider Sequential 12 LED Turn Signal Light Bar ( http://www.customdynamics.com/knight_rider_led_light_bar.htm ) is available in Amber and would serve two purposes. It would highlight and provide a sequential turn signal notification.

JC whitney has what can only be described as "electric reflectors".
They come in both amber and red. You replace the stock reflectors
on the sides of your bike with these. When the lights are off, they
look like normal reflectors in the sun. At night, when you turn them on
(or you can attach them so they are on all the time) they are LED red
or amber circles.

This is a very subtle change that wont change the look of the bike, but
will add some side view lighting so that you can better be seen at night.

There are much more flamboyant ways to do it also.
You can check out the kuryakyn led eagles I have on the sides of my bike
above where it says "Silverwing".
You can also go to www.signaldynamics.com and turn your bike into a christmas tree.

Here is another link to SuperbrightLed. I have used their accent lighting strips with great success on my bike (amber for the sides and red for the rear). Cheap-Waterproof solution. They are very bright with low/no heat and very low current draw.

Thanks to all for the great input. I looked at all the sites and now the problem is decideing which ones to use. I have to admit that I like a lot of lights and I think that comes from my trucking days. Or might be it makes me think of Christmas and that is always good for a smile.

OK...Here are some small LED lights that I used as a front fender marker light. Works GREAT and comes in many colors.

One thing to note, just because the light says LED ... brightness and focus is not the same for all LEDs. I have not seen anything that allows you to compare LEDs side-by-side without your own testing or someone else demonstrating in a picture.

I attached a 9V battery (which was below voltage) to test the Knight RiderZ. I shined it on a wall and 30 feet out there was a bright red spot on the wall. I have other LEDs on my SWing, but that LED gets everyone's attention first further away.

I followed a Burgman with a constantly on “Nightrider” light installed on his top case a few weeks back. To say the least it was VERY ANNOYING !!!!

I could see the possibility of someone being hypnotized by the LED lights Icon_cool Cool LED lights Icon_cool light and not see a turn signal or a brake light.

There are several Knight RiderZ choices with/without sequential (I call it oscillating) running light (optionally attached to running light) and 5-6 seconds flashing brake alert (attached to brake light).

I have a lot of people come right up and ask me or comment about the Knight Riderz. I have asked them two questions:

1) Did the oscillating light help you to see me?

The answer I have always received was YES.

2) Did you know exactly when I hit my brakes?

The answer I have always received was YES.


Besides the Knight RiderZ, I also have BackOff Wig-Wag attached to LEDs under the aluminum wing ... so both the Knight RiderZ and Backoff Wig-Wag provide a very red flashing light show.

If I can when braking for over 5-6 seconds, I will release the brakes and re-engage the brakes to start the red flashing light show multiple times along with the Admore brake lighting on my Givi E-52.

As far as the turn signal(s), I have additional yellow LED turn signals under the Givi SR-19 mounting plate and Admore turn signals.

There are are a lot of people who cannot take their eyes off a flashing or moving or shiny lights. So I do not solely rely on the extra brake light ... if I can when braking I will swerve to get the attention of the person
behind me ... the final swerve near stopping is to position the SWing to
provide an emergency route if needed and then monitor the rear mirror constantly.
