    Have you noticed that many new cars now have LED daytime running lights? They're big, bold and bright and they're hard to miss.

    Meanwhile, the motorcycle manufacturers have been asleep at the wheel. It used to be that only motorcycles had DRLs, so at least we had a fighting chance to stand out in all the traffic.

    Now, even with the headlight on, a motorcycle is lost in the crowd, like "Where's Waldo?"

    So while the automobile manufacturers have jumped on the LED DRL bandwagon, the motorcycle manufacturers have given us basically nothing for increased conspicuity. C'mon manufacturers -- let's get it together!

    The external size and shape of the BikeVis Bullets hasn't changed since Version 1. They're about the size, shape and diameter of a fingertip from the tip to the first knuckle.

    Each Bullet puts on just one Watt at about 72 mA at about 60 lumens. While that may not sound like much compared to, say, the 3,000 lumen FandyFire flashlight, the concentrated Bullet shape helps the light to cut through the noise.

    The "must have" accessory with each pair of Bullets is the BikeVis PodMod modulator or "twinkler". It rapidly modulates the Bullets from bright to dim 10 times per second, which attracts the eye and improves the conspicuity even further.

    The Bullets are relatively easy to install. Each light has double-sided tape on the back and although Rick was reluctant to drill a hole in the fairing of other bikes, we flush-mounted these on the Versys and it was easy to do and looks great.

  2. Aye, ain't that the truth.

    But the proposed solution, to add even more lights......... sorry, doesn't make too much sense to me.
