Yellow lights

I was recently in the Middle East and noticed their bike lights are setup like the US, i.e. the indicators are always on like side lights… this made them very visible and easier to spot. The other thing I noticed through my winter riding is that car drivers don’t spot you when its dark and rainy… however, when fitting a yellow...

marker lights

My 02 VFR has double element rear indicators and a spare connection in the plug, i fitted another connector, and now have red and orange rear markers and the indicators work as normal brighter than the marker.

I was recently in the usual cue at dartford tolls in my works van, i could hardly see bikes filtering throught the traffic due to the amount of headlights in my mirrors, suddenly i saw a headlight with 2 orange lights flashing as it got closer i realised it was a bike with hazzards on. brilliant idea, guess what i fitted last week. took about an hour cost £15.

Brighter headlights

I've previously said I like the direct replacement Xenon bulbs you can get, which are brighter than the special tungsten type and a lot cheaper than HID, but I'm now not so sure they're that much better than ordinary bulbs.  The HID option seems to be the best, if you have space for the extra bits and there are no legal issues (I've not researched this bit as I'm not thinking of changing, but if you can get replacements at places like Halfords or on line, perhaps it's OK).

LED's

The introduction of daytime running lights for all vehicles will not result in safer driving for motorcyclists. Bikes will just be another light among many. I am thinking of getting some Led strips like the ones on the Audi A8 etc as these are a very bright white light and they have a constant light output irrespective of their vertical angle. A normal headlight can appear to flash on an uneven road surface as the bike pitches up and down. Leds do not appear to suffer this phenomenom. Anything that stops morons from pulling out in front of me.

Xenon Bulb

I have Xenon bulds fitted in my car and was planning to fit one when my bike comes back from the shop. Then I saw a kit that required all sorts of rewiring and fitting of some sort of pack so I gave up the idear.

Does a Xenon bulb just plug in like the original or do you have to do all this fancy jiggerypokery to fit them
