Tenty LED Brake Lights

Pt 917

Tenty LED Brake Lights. Pete writes –

I Purchased a motorcycle about two weeks ago.  Interestingly, whenever I tell someone this news, they immediately proceed to tell me the most gruesome injuries and stomach turning plights that they or someone they know, has fallen victim to while motorcycling.  In some cases, these raconteur’s briefly pause to look over their shoulder, presumably scanning for small children or otherwise offendable ears, before delivering the goriest details.

One commonality in these stories, aside from the macabre and arguably poor timing involved in telling them to me is that many accidents come down to a lack of visibility of motorcycles and their riders.  Less than Argus-eyed motorists often pull out into the path of a motorcycle and with insufficient time for evasive action, that quickly an accident has occurred.  Other times, drivers may focus on the car ahead of the motorcycle and in the event of stopping at a red light or similar, fail to leave enough room.

  1. If the end result is increased safety, then doing an accurate measurement of the light intensity output is probably important. There are very specific *Federal* guidelines for this.

    A very good discussion of this (including diagrams, etc.) can be found here:
