That's neat, I can see someone using that instead of extra lights on their Wing.

The problem with EL light is that it wears out. Over time it dims, then fails entirely. Honda used EL lights early on for the saddlebag side lights on the GL1500, which I thought was really quite shortsighted, because they've all long since died. It looked cool because it was a solid light with no points (i.e. from individual bulbs). It also requires AC power, so they had to mount little inverters in there to convert the bike's DC to AC in order to power the panels.

Very neat.Bet the cost is going to be high. I just read this on their site.
"Training consists of a 10-day class offered at our lab in Medina OH. Initial cost to attend is $10,000.00 for shops that qualify."

WOW!!!
