    Hi Banks, not the one from Gateway. They wanted way to much for it. I bought a very nice 04 with some extras and only 25000 miles for $3300. bucks. It hads around $1500 in farkles.

    Hey Banks,

    these are true plug and play. Hot wire, ground wire. Nothing complicated. If you've got a harness all set, then get some posi-lock splices and heatshrink tubing and you're good to go.

    The only consideration for the future would be adding a dimmer, but that would just be an inline switch replacement.

    And, these are going to be a lot brighter than your hella lights

    I'll be camping this weekend, but should be in contact. If you want to order, just paypal me at admin@teslaleds.com or ghoverkamp@gmail.com. 175 per set, shipped.

    All the best,
    George

    If you are asking about wearing my riding pants and coat in the rain, yes to the coat and no to the riding pants. The coat develops small leaks at the biceps during an all day rain. I do carry Frogg Toggs though and expect that I will pull off at a handy place at my convenience to put them on if the rain looks as if it is going to last a while. I have worn the Frogg Toggs in an all day downpour several times with good results. I just bought new boots that are supposed to be waterproof too. Again, I have some good rain covers to go over them if needed, I just like not having to dive for the edge of the road to don them when it starts raining.

    Hi Banks,

    Shiro Nakama Ju San translates to White Wee Thirteen.

    There is a White Wee-Strom group on the forum for owners of the white ones, also there are Orange and Blue and other color specific groups.
    It is just a bit of a fun thing and the member who started the White group found the Japanese translations and allocates a number to those who join (I specifically requested 13).

    I'm glad you are enjoying some of my posts, thank you.

    I will try to find a link to a three state ride I did back in 09 and PM it to you, and if I can't find that then maybe a link to my FB page (if you are on Facebook that is) or a link to my Photobucket page.

    Cheers,
    Ock
