    If you made it out of aluminium you would be surprised how easy it is to cut and make the shape you want.

    Plus it's light in weight and won't rust.

    Same as anything in life. You don't know unless you try.

    Then one day they'll fit a radar camera to the overpass and you can wave GOODBYE------------------------------------to your license.-

    I used to do the speed thing a couple of years ago. Only doing 178 !!!!!!--Had to spend the next 6 months walking everywhere.---

    The "up" side was I got quite fit.--

    Got my Yoshimura exhaust and power commander V on today!!! It was 16 degrees this morning for my ride to my favorite Honda dealer but not to bad...The ride home was warmer but still a good ride.

    I ordered some Proton 500 flush mount blinkers, LED flasher, and a integrated tail light today and it should be in for this weekend to install......I also went by my Honda shop today and they broke out the service manual and showed me what I need to get the front headlight off and how to get the "dust cover" off to access the wiring harness.....After looking at manual it should be an easy install! I hope I didn't beat ya'll down to much with all the questions...

    AWESOME---------------------------------------------However try very hard not to forget what they are there for.


    They are to let the half blind driver of the two ton box behind you know what your intensions are.

    If he can't see your indicators, as an early warning that you are slowing down to turn, then your chances of survival are GREATLY reduced.

    Your bike will not look quite as pretty as you'd hoped when it's wedged under the front of a car.---


    Good, clear and easy to see indicators have a considerable bearing on the length of your biking years. ---

    Those Flush Fitting jobbies are best left as decorations on your garage wall.-----
