Undertail brake lights

Personally I think the ground effect kits are kinda... But a thought has been dancing in my head. I think if a guy/gal were to take like a red underlighting kit and and rig it up under their rear fender, then splice a connection off of the already existing a brake wire to it, you would have a pretty sweet and highly visible addition to your brake lights. I'm probably gonna do it regardless cause i think it would be neat but I was kinda wondering what you guys would think if you saw this out on the road.

My first thought would e "SQUID". If you want straight answers, come see me. That's what I do.

Not out to change minds. Just give an honest opinion and I just couldn't picture a freakin neon light mounted on someone's undertail.

I'd have to see it. I'm all for something that makes us more visible to cagers. But I wouldn't want to look like a [email protected] circus either... still has to work with the bike.

I have LED's mounted on my rear pegs. They act as turn signals as well as brake lights.

yea, i actually was one if not the first person in my area to have it done. About a month later, i saw it on ebay that you can send in your pegs and get them done in any color you want.

Its been done up where I live but using a led flexible strip. We have done it to some customers bikes at the shop. The stip itself comes from Custom Chrome. It has a 3m adhesive on the back of it and can be used as both the brake light as well as a running light. We usually place it on the lip of the rear hugger so you really cant see it until it is used. IMO I like it

I wish I had pictures but I haven't done anything yet. I agree that I wouldn't want to look like a squid. Basically when I hit the brakes anything under the rear fendor would gain a red glow and I do drive a red/black 600RR. I don't want my bike to light up like the forth of july like those pictures of the bikes they have selling that crap. Just a faint glow out the back of the bike would be sweet.

That's what I've seen and it doesn't look bad. Only a few would even notice it until its light up.

The lights in the rear pegs is cool. You only see tiny holes until they are light.
