Second brake light.

Postby halcombrick » Wed Oct 05, 2016 9:24 am



Hey guys, I've not been on in awhile, we had the premature birth of our son. Anyways since it's almost Halloween and I love skulls, I made me a second brake light. Higher up on the bike so cagers can't say they didn't see my brake light. I am loving it.

How is your son doing?

By the looks on his face... he's dreaming of riding a GoldWing. ;)
And his hands are in position. Is he rocking his right hand yet? :P

I was behind a guy on a V-Star a few weeks ago that stopped on a two lane to take a left into his driveway. I saw his brake light and turn signals weren't working so I followed him in to let him know. He said sure they work and showed me. He'd installed a skull light housing similar to Pedro's and wired it so that it was his only stop light and turn signals. One eye would flash depending on which side he was signalling. Bad idea. This was the least visible brake light I've ever seen. If I, who was paying attention, was behind him and couldn't tell that he was stopping to turn, there's no way a normal driver would. It does look great for a second brake light, though.
