I was curious if anyone has any LED lights on the underside of their bikes? I am in the process of doing so. They don't use much electricity, and would make it look nice at night, plus have the added benefit of having other motorists able to see you easier. I know.. purists are cringing right now, but I like how LED lights look on a bike at night, reflecting off all the chrome and shiney engine parts.I was wondering if anyone has done this?

All who did that in this country were taken off the road by traffic police.

well in the good old U.S. I see them a lot, but I am going to use red. I do a friend that did use blue on his Harley up under the gas tank, etc.

I'm having great luck sourcing BA9, BA7 and BA15 6 volt LEDS from China. $6.00 for 10, Free Shipping.

I'm lighting up the Zundapp KS 601 a bit without taxing its 90 watt generator. Bright brake lights are a plus!
