Vololights

I just ordered a pair of these for my bikes.
They're supposed to flash when deceleration is detected, whether rolling off the throttle, or dropping a gear.
Supposed to be as simple as tapping into the license plate light, or any other 12 volt source.

Between this, and a back off module, I'm hoping those behind me get the picture.

bbqjoe: You will love the Vololights! As you are probably are aware, I was one of the original Kickstarter backers of this project and have used them for a long time. I have seen a noticeable difference on how people follow me and they have been a conversation starter at many stop lights. They are simple to install and along with the additional set of rear LED lights, I'm pretty sure it will be hard to ignore me.

Please let us know how they work out for you.

I put the back off on my Bully, and noticed a difference right away.
The Kingpin though has such a small tail light, I fear it's almost non-existent.
This should do nothing but help.

They should be in today.

And yes, I learned about them from a post you made.

I thought you just wanted to get rid of tailgaters.

Well I do.
My spark plug and ball bearing collection has dwindled greatly.
