    i'll update this video later with a better shot of my tail lights so you can see what they actually look like. for now this is all you get :)
    the center 2 are just brake/blinker lights, not running lights, I could make them running lights also, but i think this would get better attention to the people behind me.

    Steve watch the video again, i added more

    the 4 inch round lights were like $15 bucks, it was a poorly done auction, these usually go for double, but i lucked out. and the little bulbs I bought a long time ago on ebay for about $20. There is no trick video here, the speed they are flashing is real, i just did the switch by hand.

    i was thinking the same thing, but with "for 2 minutes and 33 seconds" was added to the end.

    the lenses dont go on, this way i dont brake lenses on the trail, plus i took the plastic part the lenses screw onto off to put the lights in, so i couldnt put them on this way if i wanted to. But i know people brake lenses alot on trails, so this was my fix so I don't do that

    Thats a great idea. So are you going to unplug them when you wheel and plug them back in when you drive on-road? Or is it wired up? it looks sort of like a connector is between the wiring and the wiring on the LED.
