Chick - you talkin' about the saddlebag lights, or the bumper lights? If saddlebag, they prolly aren't any more prone to damage than the OEM stock stuff.
If the bumper lights, here is what I did. Rather than do 'em myself, I asked Larry to make 'em up for me. I put amber LEDs along the forward leading edge, and red LEDs along the trailing edge, BUTT, left a gap between the two - right at the bend/touchdown area of the bumper. I think if the drop is of the normal kind, I'll be ok, as evidenced by my previous experience!!!
If it's severe, as in a skidding drop, then I'm out the bumper and the lights and I get to replace 'em. Butt, they're not all that expensive - prolly would've been smarter of me to order two sets, butt ........
I'll be installing my sets within the week, hopefully, and plan on putting a pic or two on the site. May run 'em in this thread.
