Great Support from Rider West
Just wanted to relate the great support I recently got from Larry Schumer, owner of Rider West. They make safety lights for the BMW K1200LT, which illuminate the saddlebag reflectors and blink with the directional signal. I had just bought a 99 LT that had their system in place, but the left saddlebag reflector was missing. Got it from the previous owner, but all the LEDs were blown out (I think he tested it with a 12v source, and they are only 1.5 v LEDs!). When I contacted Larry to get some advice, he was more than willing to help. I sent the defective reflector to him, he replaced all the LEDs, and sent it back with extras (new resisters, extra connectors and ties). All for ten bucks (postage included).
Its not often you find support like this, I believe. Many thanks to Larry and if u need/want to add safety lights, I definitely recommend Rider West.
