The recent thread about LED aux brake lights got me thinking.
I have wanted some kind of added brake light for my'04 R1150RT for some time. I saw a rectangular LED cluster at the West Bend National that I liked on another oilhead, but haven't been able to locate a vendor source. I have never been fond of Hyperlites; the cobby look and high price just turned me off. I saw the plug-and-play BMW aux brake light/licence plate combo at BMW of Daytona over Bike Week. It looked like it would satisfy my desires, until I saw the cost (!). DIY splicing and mounting don't deter me in the least, so I have sought better (read:cheaper) alternatives.
I saw a Knight Riderz LB02 http://www.cosmicleds.com/knightriderz/ on a tricked out Hey-you're-busted on Main Street Daytona Beach one night and thought it was cool but not sure I'd like the constant cycling back and forth. I just don't want to promote "target fixation" on my backside. Upon research I found them inexpensive ($27), readily available and in three flavors: sequencing, flashing, steady; flashing, steady; just steady.
Anyone out there have any experience with these little gems? The price is so low I may risk a purchase just on spec but thought I would seek input from our august and learned group.
