Once in while, I volunteer as Motorcycle SAG support at Bicycling events with my LTs. I would like to keep my Emergency Lights ON all the time during the events. But the lights self cancel after a while. Is there a way to keep them ON all the time? Thanks in advance...

Hmmmm...scratching his head, I do bicycle races and marathons and have never had that problem. The flashers even stay on when I turn the key to the first off position. I basically leave them on all day.

Matt, do both of your bikes do that? The years that I had(have) all stay on until I have turned them off, how long do they stay on for?

Both bikes do the same. Sometimes first both flashers flash then left then right then stops. Sometimes stays on all the time if I am going at constant speed or stopped. But most of the time emergency lights self cancel after like a few minutes.

You are activating them with the red button, right? I know I can quickly emulate eme flashers by holding both flasher buttons down, but that does not activate them on the LT like it does on the can bus GS.

This probably won't be a problem, but in Florida, it is a traffic violation to be MOVING with your flashes on. Many people do it in the rain or when slowing down, but the law says not to do it, except when not moving. Seems that trucks do it a lot too when they are slowing down in traffic.

It is a federal requirement that trucks run them on interstates when operating below 40 MPH.

Thanks - I didn't know that. Seems to make sense.
