lol dude it's for bike nights and show's, people love the LED's and all that cool stuff that makes the moto look "COOL"

I got my storbes on my moto for some reason's I can't say here.. ahahahahah

Dude listen I had the daytime running light on also but what I did was just take the bulb out
of the day time running light out and now I can turn my strobes on without the light being in the way.... ahahhaah works like a charm

Not everyone likes them....

I personally think lights and stuff like that are for a completely different type of sportbike crowd. I have really strong opinions about it so I'll keep my mouth shut because I'll probably end up offended a lot of guys here on the forum, LOL

yea i understand stobes for a good time shall we say, but then when u want to run you got to put bulbs back in, so basically all the angel eyes is good for is if i took out my hid bulbs?? haha sound like a hassel..

in cars they use them as parking lights, most of us just have old orange lights. on bikes its a same concept, and to make your bike look different and cool.

If you buy one of the hid/angel eyes combos can the angel eyes be daytime running lights? Or are thr hids always on? OR is there a way to control them seprately possibly?

I was gonna get some for my bike but if i cant ever see them idk

i think they run of off your running lights. but you can set it up as you please. you can make them just parking lights running it of off the battery with a switch, or you can make them your running lights.

Can't really call LEDs all glam. Here in PA they're legal while riding to provide rider visibility. And I'm extremely visible at night with my LEDs on.

Now having them breathing, flashing or cycling thru the colors is pure ego. Breathe mode in blue goes with the blue of my bike rather well
