    Ok, so it may not be so safe, but man, they are cool!

    I ride my bike a lot in the dark, and always am looking for more ways to brighten it up!

    Fabian, you always seem to say something like "I'm waving my credit card right now..." every time something new & awesome comes out... Why not order a set then? Think of all the "reward points" or "air miles" you would get from a purchase like this :jester: Also, surely you would be the first member here to sport them on your bike :D

    That is indeed cool, if I had a set I would have one wheel scrolling "MotoredBikes.com" and pictures of member's bikes going on the other :tt1: Hey, would I get paid by this site if I did something like that???? :devilish:

    Hi Rob,

    I've already done my research - i'll be going to see the Australian importer of these lights at the start of my week-off (this Thursday).

    Their location is not far from where i live.

    There's no justification for me to have them on my bike, it's just that need to have it.

    Are you crazy? That is the ultimate in combining cool with saftey!! I will be a distant observer till the price comes down, but I would love it on my bike.

    Well has anyone went to there site yet, you can actually buy the normal unit for only $65 with free shipping,(USA) it comes preloaded with all the images effects etc.....

    The unit on You-Tube is the custom built model with user interface, the standard model is reasonably enough priced..... it would be cool for those long summer evenings !!!!!!!

    I did go to the page, they say for speeds 8-25 MPH, not to exceed 30 MPH. I am over that!

    I was just saying safety problem do to driver distractions! I would prob put a pic of a schoolgirl with my bike on it!

    Thanks Vegas....no I did not go to the site, and I am ashamed to say so. I am now looking at this product more earnestly. I may contact them to see if it can be ordered with custom pics loaded.

    From the pics of your bikes I figured that kind of distraction in Hawaii was normal.

    since were checking out cool lights, how about this creation from flexpro. There not as wild as the monkeylectric setup, but they are cool just the same. They are also have the price of the other rig and since monkeylectric suggests two kits per wheel for best preformance, the price just went from $130 V $30.

    Maybe a set of each tricked out on a bike would be way cool

    That is cool also!
    As a man on a tight budget, I would like to add a poor mans approach to all of this. I am going to buy the cheep valve stem caps that light up during travel, untill I can afford these cool items.

    I ride in the dark daily...I want some good upgrades to all my lights. I ran the cheap valvestems, and hey are OK, but I had problems with them not turning on. I'd have to 'bump' the bike to get them to flash. Maybe it was just my set...

    That secon set looks pretty cool!

    I got a good idea for anyone in a urban environment. Have businesses pay you to ride around at nite advertising their restaurant or venue and the pro unit would pay for itself within a summers use. (and stick some cash in your pocket too!!) Man that would do great as a pizza delivery vehicle with the pizza parlors logo on the wheels or like get any large pizza for 10 bucks , etc.....
