LED brake light doodads

Any of you have these domino-shaped lights on your bikes? I have seen them made by Hyperlite, BackOff and several other companies.

Are there better ones than others? Bright and blinky when I brake is what I am looking for.

I made some for my CBR that was stolen and, as cheap as they were, I was never impressed with the intensity of them. Figured this time I will just shell out the $$ for them, but I want good ones.

I've made some lights for other guys and found a good source for all sorts of LED's at a reasonable cost.

Truck Stops. They have a bunch of different sized LED liughts and they're cheap! Also very bright. Lots of them are, of course, too big for mounting on a bike, but lotsof them are just the right size.

I bought some at a William's Truck Stop but have seen them at lots of others too.

Good luck.

I've picked up LED's and mini strobes through www.squadfitters.com which is a law enforcement supply company. They have a variety of LED's designed for bikes as well as some nifty little strobes that make superb emergency flashers. They come with red, blue, amber and clear lenses, needless to say, check your local regs...don't put red strobes facing the front of the bike

I also installed an LED light bar over the license plate, linked to my brake light, that shows up well:

I use a great tail light mod called TAILBLAZERS check them out at Kisan technologies

They consist of replacement tail light bulbs and base - the bulb is a 10 w halogen - the base is equipped with a circuit board that causes decayed decreasing flashes while the brake light is activated. You start breaking the brake lights, they start flashing at 20 times per second , then 10 x/sec, then 5 xsec until a steady light.
Great for catching AND keeping the attention of the guy behind you.

AND they also look cool......
