LED's In Your Hardbags

Went to grab a 24 pack and passed by these little beauties on my way to pay.
LED BARS.
Bright as hell and can be used as a flash light sitting roadside at night.
I thought I would Velcro mount them in my Hardbags. Man these little monsters put out some serious light.
Bought them at Walgreens, lol.
$10.00
Here's what they look like on and off & mounted.

Not bad, I was actually gonna look into wiring up LEDs like I did in my glove box with magnetic switches that come on and off when lid/ door opens and closes. And add some quick disconnects for the few times bags come off

I use REDA Cycle Sticks. Work great in the saddle bags. Still have not figured out a decent mount in the Tour Pak without drilling holes.

In theory, Theory and Reality are the same. In reality, they are different.

I carry one of those lights in my lowers compartment for emergency's.
I wired Alpena LED white light strips in my hard bags and they work off a switch.
They come in handy when looking for things in the saddlebags when it's dark out.

Way better than the ones I had my wife buy me for Christmas. Feel bad because now I want to upgrade, but I rarely ride at night due to the weather in Europe.

I bought the same thing. only it was labled by Sylvania and was only $7.00 at the grocery store. the plastic base sticks pretty well to the lid of the tourpack (if you clean it off really good first), but the stick has a tendency to pop out of it's channel when you hit a bump. I solved that with some gorilla glue.

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