    Aux. LED on R60/2

    I changed Scarlett to 12 volts some time ago, which helps with a brighter headlight. Now I added an auxiliary LED light to increase my visibility to drivers.

    Very nice !

    Auxiliary visibility LED's are a addition on all my 12v bikes because I actually can tell the difference they make. A lot more cars, at a greater distance, pause from pulling out in front of me than what was normal for most of my riding career.

    Debatable, but I prefer yellow for the front, especially at night. And I make my own from store bought 24 bulb clusters and PVC plumbing caps.

    Are there 6 volt auxiliary LED options? I've got two 6v bikes.

    I agree with your comments re: visibility and yellow. My 2015 RT is not a /2, but it is VERY effective in warning car drivers.
