Well I just finished a few last minute preps getting ready for tomorrow's ride, which is all on public roads. Thought my rear turn signals were a little dim. Removed the amber lenses & was surprised how dirty they were on the inside. A good cleaning with a damp rag has them much more visible ( I have the BD DSK). Got me thinking about safety. I'm no longer single, racing bikes & basically riding balls out all the time. Now I've got a wife, kids, job mortgage, etc. I just want to be as visible as possible out there. Short of wearing a neon green tuxedo I want as visible as possible within reason. I recently posted questions about LED replacement bulbs in hopes that they are brighter with the added bonus of requiring less wattage. A friend today told be they indeed are but are pretty spendy. He said a 1157 equivalent replacement LED is like $40! I think I'll just go to the local NAPA & see if they have a brighter single element bulb that will fit the stock signals. Anyhoo if anyone out there has any other "bright" ideas I'd be interested. Be careful out there!
