Ground Lighting

I was surfing and saw an image with a light housing in the chrome piece behind the side bumpers.. I assume this is for some sort of ground lighting ... does anyone have lights, turn signal, or brake lights installed in that spot?

Jerry,

I saw some installed additional lights there at BMW Motarrad Days in Germany. I think the fellow LTer was a KOGer from Italy.

I believe that's a stock OEM light installed on the newer LTs. I know a couple of them that were here recently for the Tech Fest had 'em.

06-07 maybe?

Ground lighting is an available option on the 2007LT's here in Canada. I have it installed on my bike. I believe that you need to order the central locking option as well to get it.

....or it could be my "landing lights" project - 16 white leds illuminating the sides, kickstand and center stand.

Those lights came standard on my 06. They only come on when it's dark out and when I use the KEY FOB to lock/unlock the bike.

They caused me a lot of ribbing on my first outing with the Harley Riders in my group. I just told them I had them installed so I could be sure I didn't step in any OIL PUDDLES left by the HD's they hadn't been paper trained. They got quiet!
