The most common phrase overheard after a vehicle/motorcycle accident is, ” I never saw any brake lights.” Your friends at K and G Cycles (www.kandgcycles.com) don’t want this to happen to you so we are offering some great products aimed at making you far more visible. Using a combination of BackOff Brake Modules made by Signal Dynamics Corporation and a high quality L.E.D. bulb (like those offered by WIXTECH or Brite-Lites) you vastly improve your ability to be seen by those behind you.
Part#TR-481001: The BackOff XP/Brake Light Signal Module is one of four taillight/turn signal control modules designed to alter visual output of your brake light/s. This particular module offers you 2 modes of operation to choose from.
Operation Mode 1 emits 3 short burst flashes followed by 1 long flash lasting 3.5 seconds and will repeat cycle as long as the brakes are held.
Operation Mode 2 emits 5 short burst flashes followed by a steady burn until the brake lights are released.
Other control modules from Signal Dynamics Corp. offer different “attention getting” flash sequences like alternating between left and right halves of the brake light, as well as the brake lights being held on with only one pull of the lever so your hands are free to take a rehydrating drink, adjust that helmet, wipe oof those shades, or other duties needing tended to at your next stop. Whatever model you choose to suit your needs, you will be happy to know prices start at $37.95 for technology meant to keep you safer.
After you have installed the light control module it is now time to turn up the intensity and install some high discharge L.E.D. bulbs. Wixtech offers a class leading 37 light L.E.D. replacement bulb that comes in a weatherproof housing is available in Amber and Red and single or dual circuit allowing numerous applications. $29.99 is what you will have to part with for each bulb, but can you really hang a price tag on safety?
Another great supplier with a 360 approach to L.E.D. lighting is “Brite-Lites”, an emerging company with a focus on bringing high quality, upgraded lighting with the most output to you at an affordable rate. An excellent choice when looking to light up your rear, Brite-Lites L.E.D. Taillight bulbs utilize a 360 degree design allows these lights to function in any position. A distinct advantage when using L.E.D. lights is the decreased power draw thus allowing you the potential use of more lights while not taxing your electrical system. Couple that with greater resistance to vibration and an average life span of around 10,000 hours and their higher cost is quickly nullified.

K and G Cycles (www.kandgcycles.com) takes motorcycling and safety very seriously and because we do, we offer a large selection of upgraded lighting and attention getting devices for your motorcycle.
