Wife just got an 06 baby blue Vespa LX150 last week. It was her gift to herself for getting her architecture license.
The juxtaposition of the huge LT next to the diminutive Vespa get a lot of looks as we cruise around town. When we go out for dinner, we take the scenic route and ride side-by-side like CHiPs.
Of course, it's already been farklized... we spent the day yesterday installing four of these LED marker lights in place of the factory reflectors.
Red in the rear and amber in front.
We set them up as always-on running lights, but with the pos+ wire on one of these rat shack relays on each side.
The lights are on the NC side of the relay, and the relay coil is powered in parallel with the turn signals. When she hits the turn signal, it both lights the turn signal light and opens the relay, which turns off the marker lights on that side. Thus, the running lights wig-wag with the turn signals.
And before anyone gets excited about the flashing red lights on this vehicle, I have a copy of Cal. Veh. C. Sec. 25251(a)(1) and 25106(a) printed out, highlighted, and stored in the registration package under the seat.
Tonight it's getting a set of these LED bullets in place of the cheesy front turn signals:
I'm hoping these farkles get her hooked on the idea and make it easier to convince her of the plain necessity
of my various LT gadgets.
