Very nice job indeed. I've added LED's for turn signal as well as additional brake/running lights. You can never have too many lights on a bike.

Sorry to hear about your cousin. Too many distracted drivers out there. Can't count the times I've been on a highway and watched drivers texting, trying to read a book or newspaper, eat breakfast, etc. while driving...

Looks great. I'm still looking for the right lights to add to the rear of my Vaq. Nice work.

Like the look.
It is something I will do next year.
Just finished putting on the custom dynamic curved license plate and LED turn signals.
Really cleaned the ass end.
Glad to see another Southern Ontario Vaquero in the area. Don't see a lot of us around.

Thanks.

I've seen three...but haven't met the guys that ride them. They have always been at a bike night somewhere but I don't catch them near their bike.

Just food for thought.

I was checking out your lights and noticed the Lumens rating on the lights you used. The lights you used have a 12.88 lm rating.

The factory bulbs are like an 1156 or 1157 bulb. If the information I was given is correct, they are rated @ 402 lm.

I am looking at the same idea but I want the new lights to put out the same or more lumens.

I don't want to here the excuse "I didn't see the lights."

I don't want to be at fault because I installed something that was not as bright for the daytime conditions.

Now if I don't have my facts correct I'm all ears cause I would like to clean up the way it looks also.

Yeah, the bulbs at the link he posted are marker lights. Not intended to be as bright as brake lights or turn signals.

You may be correct with respect to the lumens rating...however, at night when behind the bike in the dark, the small lights really stand out compared to the taillight. I'd say it's a little more intense as opposed to all the single LEDs in the taillight. I've been told they show up well in the daylight too. That said, there is still a good visual difference between them and the break light.

Having grown up on the Canadian Prairies, as kids we looked forward to the seeing the Princess Auto catalog in the mail. It's sort of the Canadian equivalent to Harbor Freight.

Check out their Showcase on their webpage which features projects built by their customers. Some pretty ingenious projects there:
