BAL Tail/Brake light

BAL Tail/Brake light American made. Been around for awhile .
3 settings for how bright tail light is and a bunch of brake light patterns.

Same here. Added it about 6 months ago; cars & trucks give me noticible more distance now.

Run on wife' s 1998 Dyna. Recently installed. Very impressed. Certain to be noticed. But is there a downside?

Question on possible "driver confusion." Reading on various forums it has been asserted that super bright tail running & break lights detract from rear turn signal. Seems reasonable but unimportant. Comments?

Had one on my 10 Ultra LTD ~ really liked it ~ now I am determining how I want to add lighting to the CVO to make it a bit more noticable ~ BAL is a quality light and well worth the money ~

Same here. It has saved me a couple of times. at a light staring in my mirror, cage coming up fast, cycled the brake to set the taillight off again. behold, see the car hit brakes hard. they didn't even see me at first!!!

+++1 on the BAL

also, yet another reason i keep in in gear and stare at my mirror while at a light

Sometimes to achieve the impossible,you have to try the absurd!
