thinking about the tailblazers but...

I guess I thought the tailblazers acted differently. Apparently all they do is flash a few times and then stay on. $59 for a light bulb that flashes? I can pump the brakes while I'm stopped a few times and save the money. Check out the demo.

When I had my '01 gixxer 600, I replaced both the stock light bulbs with LED lights. I don't know what kind it was, but there were several LEDs in a circular pattern in each "bulb". When the electrical system was on, the lights swirled around in a circular pattern and then swirl in a counterclockwise pattern. When you applied the brakes, they flashed very brightly at a consistent rate, but did not return to full on. I think I paid around 80 for both bulbs and it was well worth it. I'm not too sure about the tailblazers though. I just can't see paying $59 for that.

That's a good idea, I like it, how much do those kits run?

On a somewhat similar note, I was behind a harley on my way to work this morning, and he had unorthodox turn signals. Instead of two separate signals, there was a center L.E.D. display right above the licence plate about four inches wide, that flashed from one end to the other, like so: [>>>>>>]. But, it took me about two blocks of driving behind him before he remembered to disengage the signal, for me to figure out what it was. I'm not a big fan of them, it's too tough to determine what way the rider plans on turning. I'd stick to the conventional separate signals.
