lighting questions

hey guys, I was in a bad wreck a while ago and now feel that im a bit paranoid but I'm attempting to make myself more visible at night, I added some reflective wheel tape, and I'm adding an HID low beam for the 929. my next stop was to add a brake light modulator so i can get a few strobe pulses for the brake light to try and grab some attention. When I bought the 929 the PO had put some red underglow lights on it which I dont really care for but was thinking that maybe I can incorporate them into the modulator and brake light to cause the underglows to strobe when im braking at night, maybe have it controlled by a switch so I can leave them off during the day, anyone ever tried this? do you think I will run into any issues drawing that much power through the brake light harness? Thanks guys, also other options/opinions on attention grabbing features? I would rather be obnoxious and seen than hit at 55mph again. thanks in advance.

Re: lighting questions

this is actually the one I'm planning on getting,

Thor ? A Programmable Brake Light Modulator | Lakeside Electronics, LLC

just not sure if the strobing bulbs and led underglows will pull too much power for that rear harness, I should know the law for underglows since i work for my local police department, but to be honest I dont know if the strobing is a problem or not, as long as it cant be seen from the front of the bike I think it will be fine, just unsure if I need to worry about overloading the wiring, Im no electrician.

Re: lighting questions

Hi Josh , had a look at the manual for Thor, it doesn't seem to have a strobe disable when the indicators work, would have thought that was a good safety feature .Bill
