CD Trueflex added to my TP

So I stole an idea from Drifter-11 on how to brighten up my ass a little more since I added an TP. CD talked me out of using a plasma rod and talked me into their 12.8" truflex LED. I bought it along with the Magic strobe I have been wanting since buying my 2016 RGS. I am extremely happy with how it came out. Was able to make it a run/brake and it strobes to whatever setting I have the module set at. Best part is when I have the turn signal on the LED strip continues to strobe. Other than the nervousness of centering the strip and the drilling of 2 small holes in my TP for wiring it was a pretty straight forward install. Might add plasma rods to the bad gaps down the road but this will be good for now.

That looks like a clean install. I'd still add the Plasma Rods.

That looks really good. Nice and centered too.

I'd add the bag lights. Ciro or Electra Glo. I'm not a fan of the rods. To much wash out with the light.

Looks really good Harley! Do you mind posting a pic with the light off so we can see what it looks like on the pack? Love the extra visibility!

Thanks bro! I actually bought a Z-flex light from Radiantz, very similar to the CD one you have, a while ago but wasn't really sure if I wanted to install it. Seeing yours helped me decide to go ahead and do it. Thanks for the extra pics.

Was that a plug and play set up or did you have to cut and splice? I am looking for something like that to light up my rear some more but I would like a plug & play light if possible.

Not plug and play. Have to splice and soldier in the tour pak. I have quick disconnect so I ran wires and put a connector under the seat
