My Goldwing with some lights

Postby schr8er2000 » Sun Aug 31, 2014 3:00 pm



This is a pick of my 1998 Honda Goldwing Aspencade which I have add lights for visibility for the drivers and also put red lights in the side of the trunk, saddlebags and the back center between the rear brake lights....

Looks interesting. Do you have any plans for more?

In my part of the world, you are not allowed to have blue lights unless you are an emergency vehicle. And they have just changed the road laws that when an emergency vehicle is on the side of the road with lights flashing, you may pass but at only 25Km/h (about 15MPH) - try that when you are on a highway doing 110Km/h (about 65MPH). You certainly give your brakes a workout! (May the Nannies in charge of the government live in the fast lane!)

Blue lights are illegal here in Jersey too. But I'm guessing no one really enforces the laws, since
I see plenty of bikes with blue lights at the local bike night. I've also seen cars with
blue driving lights coming towards me at times. Years ago, I had some early blue trim strip lights
on the side of the saddlebags and fairing of my bike. No one ever bothered me for them.
Just my two cents.

The use of ANY color lights are legal in PA as long as if they are blue or red they do NOT pulse, strobe, flash or sequence.... I checked before I bought them and have a copy of the law JUST IN CASE the local wannabe's decide to stop me because of it....

the feds ( dot ) sets the policy on the color and placement of lights on a vehicle not the state. sometimes local leo's will enforce the law other times they won't

You have been misinformed... I checked prior to adding these lights and found that the state can or cannot decide what lights are on a motorcycle.... see this in the rules..

5 Section 1. Title 75 of the Pennsylvania Consolidated 6 Statutes is amended by adding a section to read: 7 §4310. Motorcycle lighting. 8 Auxiliary lighting may be added to a motorcycle to protect 9 the driver, including blue dot illumination, standard bulb 10 running lights and various colors of valve stem caps, light- 11 emitting diode (LED) pods and strips, light wire, neon tubes and 12 strobe lights. 13 Section 2.

The only restriction is that you cannot have flashing red or blue lights facing forward on the vehicle as that is limited to law enforcement..... SOME states prohibit blue lighting but PA does not...

Here in TN its the same, any lights you want as long as they are constant, no flashing or pulsing, that's for the 5-0

TO me,
the blue lights will only cause the man in in blue to keep stopping you and find something wrong somewhere .I do believe a different color would be a better choice.And i also think a driver behind you will want to get closer to get a better look ,Before you know it hes up your a----. But then again ,,what do i know ..Outside of the fact i have seen this happen a number of times .
