I wanted to be more visible, so I made my rear signals double as running lights.

I used 2 amber LED's(2000mcd) that I got from unique-leds.com, per signal. These were seated in little plastic holders from radioshack(Part No. 276-079).

Power came from the tag light. Use (1) 330ohm resistor

I'm very happy with the result. The LED's are bright enough to be seen from a fair distance, but they don't drown out the flashing of the turn signal.

Simple and effective. It'd be cool if Kawi did something like this from the factory. Before I went buck wild with LED's just that little brake light being the only visible item from behind the bike is kind of... A joke!

Funny timing as tonight (1:30am) I was riding through a windy back country road and got behind a motorcyclist on some small honda type cruiser and I had a hard time seeing him and trying to gauge distance. All I could see was this little ass red light moving around in front of me like a red lighting bug. I had a hard time telling if the bike was 100 yards or 100 feet in front of me!

So yeah again kudos to getting yourself seen!
