On the way home from work tonight I passed a biker that had orange running lights on his mirrors. It took me a second to figure out what it was until we almost passed each other. It really made the bike stand out by far much more then without them. Don't know what kind of bike it was.

Has anyone else seen these or have them? Where can they be purchased at? I think it is a big safety addition to the bike so I want some.

mirrors

I had a set of kuryakn mirrors that had turn signals on the front, as well as in the back (glass side). Had to replace them after an unfortunate, "oops the kickstands not down" spill in the driveway, and kuryakn says they don't make them like that anymore. Bummer:mad:

if its for the bike....its expensive!
I notice from your sig pic that you're a sailor. Having dealt with THAT addiction for most of my adult life, I understand that anything for a bike, boat, plane, etc. is going to be more expensive. If you want to buy a cotter pin for 25 cents, they raise the price by a dollar or two if they know it's for a boat. :eek:

I like these and the ones below.

I really like these but I'm concerned they would be distracting to the rider. Any thoughts on that?

Regarding price, I found some that were a lot less. I know nothing about the quality, etc. and I think they're only lighted on the back.

I like these and they come with the metric adapters as well. Leds are bright even though directional, I would worry about seeing them and distracting me. Also it could make the mirror unless or hard to see in while flashing. I think the lights on the back are the safer of the two. Good price.

Boy, isnt that the truth! Motorcycles, boats, planes....these all are way out of line in their pricing. And in motorcycle accessories, exhaust systems in particular, why are the Honda vtx exhaust systems always more than Suzuki, or kawi or yami or hardly?? Grrrrr, agravates me..

Having supported aircraft, boat, and bike habits in my life, aircraft is the most expensive by far. They even charge more for the air in the tires.
