Modulating Tail light

I'm looking to add a tail light that will flash when braking. I know that I saw one somewhere, and I can't remember where. Any help I'd appreciate it. Thanks.

Mine are on their second bike as well, and at least for me, they do their job.
With the hyperlites installed, most cars leave a full car length between us and don't tend to creep closer while waiting for the light to change.

I haven't checked out the custom dynamics yet, but the hyperlites. Do they go underneath your stock break light? It looks from what I can tell, that they are a separate light system? Were they easy to install?

They have more than one style but they are separate lights. I use a Kisan Modulator for my factory tail light and have Hyperlights mounted to the sides. I used the Hyperlight version that does not modulate since I have the Kisan modulator.

They are relatively easy to install. They require splicing into a few wires as I recall but all-in-all a relatively straightforward installation.

+1 Hyperlites

Real easy to install. If you don't want to splice into the wires Eastern Beaver has a really nice kit that lets you tap into the lines without cutting stock wiring. Here' the link

Version 1 is for Hyperlites, version 2 is for Backoff Breaklight modulator.

Hope this helps
