My "Lane Splitting Lights"



I wired my amber spot lights through a heavy-duty 12V flasher unit, with an A/B (on/off/on) switch on the left neck cover. Now when I'm splitting lanes I can flip the switch and my spot lights flash light hazard lights. They work great, the traffic really parts for me... I think at first glance in the rear view mirror they think I'm a cop and get out of my way!

Nice job!!!!

Good idea. Just don't let the cops catch you.

You will probably eventually get booked for that....hope not though....

Life is all about making choices, and then living with the results (good OR bad) of those choices.

If you refering to lane splitting, this is California, lane splitting is legal here... and if you dont split lanes in bay area traffic your a sitting duck just waiting to become some SUV's hood ornament! It's much safer to keep moving!

Flashing amber lights are legal in a hazardous situation, ie: hazards lights (which my bike is not equiped with)... red or blue lights would be illegal. I talked to a friend who's a CHP officer. He say's its kind of a grey area open to officers interpredation whether traffic is a hazardous situation or not. He doubts a cop would cite me if using them responsibly for enhanced safety... but if they do, oh well. lol

AS A FORMER CALIFORNIA RIDER I AGREE..KEEP MOVING.. I GUESS IT WOULD DEPEND ON WHAT CITY YOU WERE RIDING THROUGH, MOSTLY THE CHP IS GOOD ABOUT MOTORCYCLE RIDERS.. SOME CITY POLICE THOUGH CAN BE A PAIN... STAY SAFE!! LOVE THE LIGHTS...

Nice lights! They lookg great! 

 

Nice lights! They look great! That being said, there are laws about how fast / slow they can flash. It may get you a fix-it-ticket.

I'm aware... that's a chance I'm willing to take! ;-)

like em, great idea too, if you get away with it

I like it, hell run it till someone stops you

Very Cool! I like it!

loke the idea, but i would last around a day and end up prosecuted under some daft law or other, i might give it a shot though.

that should read like,   not loke, i really must take typing lessons.
