If I was a normal person Id be putting these on my two bikes that have no indicators. But not, Ill replace the standard Lucas ones. Oh wait it won't be factory original then. Well, yes, but it would be prototypical for back in the day. Indicators were gone as soon
as we got the bike!
Yeah, removal of indicators, and mirrors, was normally the second thing I’d do to a motorcycle (after ‘improving’ the exhaust system)!
But it seems that a combination of age, busier roads, more distracted drivers, and less and less awareness of hand signals is eventually getting to me.
Recently I had a car driver staring at me as I approached a junction, I was turning left and signalling properly, he DID NOT know what to do. First he waited, then he went, then he stopped in the middle, then, literally as I started to turn, he went again. He clearly had no idea what my perfectly correct signal meant!
As posted in another thread, fitting LED indicators was incompatible with the warning light. This needs diodes to work, Other wise you end up with hazard lights (all 4 flashing together), in the end I went with a neat little assembly sold by Paul Goff. I also fitted LED warning light bulbs whilst I was at it, they are SO bright. So bright in fact that even I stand a small chance of noticing them !!
