Hand Guards with Turn Signals

Acerbis Dual Road Handguards - BikeBandit.com

I saw these at Bike Bandit. They are Acerbis hand guards with LED's They look pretty cool but not much info on them on the site.

Seems like this would be a great addition if used as turn signals (If they are bright enough)
Anyone have any experience with these?

i have no experience with them, but if you do decide to try them out, keep us posted! I wonder if you can get them in different colours.. seems that blue isn't a very good choice.

It's a funny thing about comin' home. Looks the same, smells the same, feels the same. You'll realize what's changed is you.

If they really are blue, that would be a terrible choice in Florida anyway. Blue lights are the one thing cops have no sense of humor about around here.

Sometimes grafics do not tell the story (just cause they are blue in the picture does not mean they are blue in reality)

No experience with these, but I think they are a great safety idea. I have the Twisted Throttle Storm Handguards with aluminum braces.......have thought about adding LED's to them. Another option I have looked at are mirrors with built-in turn signal lights (Ebay).

I went to Autozone and rigged my own on my existing Barkbusters for $20.
All indications are that these indicators are more visible than stock, day or night.
I think it's very helpful moving the indicators up and out, to get away from the headlamp halo.
