jrw69 - that was my only thought of using it was if i was broken down on the side of the road so that people saw me.
2007BruteForece - that looks like what i have. when i hit the break, it flashes 3-5 times really fast, then stays solid. it is a great safety feature. the switch and flashing threw me for a loop since i havent seen it before except for like bikes at bike shows or TV.
not my style but since its tied up under the seat, no need to get rid of it, just keep it in case i need to be seen on the side of the road or whatever.
