Blinkers to Driving Lights?

I was wondering if anyone had wired their blinkers to also run as driving lights. I saw a BMW K1200GT with the lights hooked up this way, and it made the bike soooooo much more visible.

Anyone ever done this?

red H,

yo, my versys has all four blinkers as riding lights.
hence both the left n right green signal idiot lights on the display will be lit whilst riding.
but when i use the signals, the riding lights will go off n only the appropriate side (either left or right) will flash. when i cancel the indicator, the riding lights come on again.
definitely more visible on the road especially for cars coming out of side lanes. these drivers will notice me from a longer distance away n identify me as on a bike.
my only concern is burning the signal lights out early as these are on all the time. so always carry at least a couple of spares with me.

dun ask me how it's wired up. the dealer did it for me before delivery.

Here is a way to do it for about $5.00.
