Anyone PIMPED their LT yet with LED's

Interested to know if anyone has pimped their ride with LED's, other than the ones in the tip over wings, rear panniers and mirrors ? Noticed quite a few Goldwings that have and they look quite good.
Some pictures would be nice.

Re: Anyone PIMPED their LT yet with LED's

Met this one guy at the 08CCR that has his pretty well lit up. Its all mostly blue lighting, but he got the floresent behind the air grills and everything.

If you look closely in the pic, you can see the LED wrap around he has on the trunk. I have his info in my bag somewhere if your interested. He should be on the board here as I told him how to get signed up.

Here's a formula for the math geeks out there.

lim BMWLT (Accent Lighting -> Infinity) = Gold Wing

Re: Anyone PIMPED their LT yet with LED's

I have the LED's no pic's to share yet will try to post some this week.

LED Lighting does not = Gold Wing a farkle is a farkle its your ride your style. Just keep the RPMs up past 4k with a good lean in the twisties and and there will be the separation from a GW.

I have tried to keep mine pretty much legal. Any blue leds will immediately attract LEO's so I have avoided them...

Pimped their ride? LOL. Does a BMW owner actually use a phrase like this?

Re: Anyone PIMPED their LT yet with LED's

I saw the Blue LT at CCR also. I talked with the owner briefly after Thursday night dinner/auction. Very nice guy.
He had every thing lit up on that bike. A rolling lighted sign above the lic plate, a light that seemed to outline the windshield, lights everywhere. He had also upgraded the headlights and the sound system. I thought it looked pretty neat. Not for me, but alright. I will tell you one thing, he is "seen" at night.
Has to be a plus on the safety side.

My wife and I saw that bike. Her comment was "You wouldn't catch me dead on that bike, much less alive."

Re: Anyone PIMPED their LT yet with LED's

I saw the bike at CCR. My first thought was "Circus Wagon"; but to each his own.

He had blue rope-lights about everywhere you could think of. Also, having blue lights are reserved for LEO's, I thought??

Does that come before or after the matching short pants and flip flops?

My wife said the only way that we can take a teddy bear is if it is tied to rope dragging behind the bike.

Yes, since we gained independence we are not averse to using the full spectrum of English, even though Irish remains the official state language.
How does a "BMW Owner" speak in the other former colony West of the mainland. Should I be ashamed?

Re: Anyone PIMPED their LT yet with LED's

Mark You got it just right. Everyone who read that post knew exactly what you meant right off. I got some good ideas for this winter from Pozo Izquierdo
and his visibility is greatly improved which is what we all should want on this side of the puddle.
