headlight flashers?

i was thinking if there is any headlight flashers on the market. just like the car, it would be nice to hold the light button to strob for a moment to attract attention in trafic during the day and night instead of the horn.
any ideas?

I don't know of any motorcycle (or road glide) specific kits, but recon makes some killer automotive shit, I've run there strobe kits on many of my work trucks and never had an issue with them. Two 12v headlights, wheather on a truck or bike, is still two headlight, I'd guess

Good ain't cheap, cheap ain't good.......

Those are either on or off. You don't have an option to strob the. For a moment.

indirectly, you do. the flasher is hooked up to either high beam or low beam (depending on who makes the kit). say it's wired to your low beam. so if you want to momentarily 'blink', you switch from high beam to low beam. then switch back to high beam and the blinking is turned off.

I understand the concept of reality, but find it too confining for a way of life.

Or just press the override button

true, the hd unit does have an override, but not all headlight modulators do. but they all only work on one circuit (either high or low beam), but either way, it isn't difficult to achieve what the op is wanting to do.
