Thumbs up Hyper Lites Really Work!

Hey Troopers!

I recently installed a set of hyper lites and was pretty sure I'd just spent some dough on a sparkly nothing. I wasn't really sure that they would help keep motorists off my ass. Much to my suprise today as I was riding to and from work I noticed something odd.... There was room behind me. At first I was a little confused, here in LA if theres a 3 second stopping buffer someone jumps into it. Yet there I was with a good two car lengths of space. "What the...?" I wondered, then I remembered the hyper lites. Every time I touched the brakes, people behind me slowed down much sooner.

I like 'em!

Hey Shep, did you get the Strom kit, or did you go with something different?

I got the Strom kit. 16 led's in two rows of 8 (I think). Sits right on top of the licence plate light. Wiring was easy. I just did a 300 mile circuit from my house to Big Bear Mtn. and back and all but one asshat behind me gave conservatively a two car length buffer. Pretty effective.

LOL! I tried calling you, got your voice mail. Yeah freakin' Harley's everywhere. Loud, slow, and anoying. Now I know why they call 'em hogs. Every turn they were going 25 mph. I rode half way up 38 in second (that's SECOND) gear behind a daisy chain of 12 wanna be's. What a bunch of lame posers. Couldn't stand it. :twisted:
