Who has aux brake lights?

I know that some of you have extra brake lights on your side cases, but who has an extra brake light on the bike?

Pics?

Holy $hit that's a monster !

Is it only brake light, or also running light?

Dimensions?

Did you mount that on a plate in conjunction with the license plate?

These next photos show how you can adjust the light bar to not block the license plate light.

Here is what I came up with. The top row is running lights, the middle row is brake lights, and the bottom row is turn signals. They are mounted to a piece of plexiglass I had laying around which is mounted to the back of the license plate. It didn't save me money over the other options, but I like to be able to replace a light if one burns out or breaks.

I have the admorelighting LEDs in the V35s. They are run, turn, and brake.

I also have skenedesign LED lights on both sides of the license plate. Super bright and great controller. On the Versys they are run and brake. On the Concours I have run, turn, brake.

The two red round side reflectors towards the back of the bike (on a gen2) are now side marker LED brake lights. The main brake light is on a modulator and the bottom rear fender has a 1x3 rectangle side marker type LED that is connected to the brake light (non modulated).

I just finished the install of my TUSK panniers onto BIG RED, then added the SAME 7", 31 diode LED lights as on the GREEN HORNET, my Canuck V, THIS time as tail-lights/ brake lights, PLUS added an amber rectangular LED light as turn sigs. Here's a pic of them ALL lit up at the same time (and I apologize for the 'blurry' pic.......)

I know they will NOT be the choice for some, but at least the "Cagers" can't say they don't see me!

I have the Admore kit on the Givi bags, but since I take the bags off about half the time, I was interested in getting a set of the small Admore bars and fab something to attach them to both sides of the monokey frame. Does anyone know if these have the same connection fitting that is used for the bag wiring hook up. I'm talking about the small round connector that is wired to the running, brake and turn wiring at the rear of the V that screws into the female fitting that has been attached to bag. I hate to have another set of wires hanging out and junking up the tail section.
