Trike lights

Postby maestro319 » Mon Dec 01, 2014 1:04 pm



The garage and mechanic that does the "wrenching" on my trtike has a sale going for "extra" LED lights for the trike. My question is; Yea or Nay on extra lighting. I am leaning toward having him do it. What do you guys think?

Can you ever have too many extra lights?

Beauty is in the eye's of the beholder, that means it's totally on you. However given that lights are probably the likeliest thing to draw attention to yourself as far as safety items go I'd say go for it.

Depends on what your wrencher charges, and his skills with electrics. A number of wrenchers I have come across are real good at wrenching but put a fuse in their hand and they ask you what should they do, as they already had their suppository for the day :shock: . An alternative would be for you to do it yourself, and that way you learn some more about your trike.

The world is not going to finish today, as it is already tomorrow in Australia and New Zealand, and other islands of foreign nations such as Guam and Samoa.
