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 ~

Agree that's why I set mine to flash three times then solid on.
