Because I do a lot of urban riding in some of the country's craziest traffic, I started installing these TIR3 Watt 4 LED strobe brake lights on my bikes back in 2013 as an additional high visibility brake light. They work well, I haven't been rear ended yet. I finally got around to taking a video of one on the GRiSO and thought I'd post it for those who might be interested. The 2nd video is of one that I installed in 2014 on my Triumph Trophy. They are of a very high quality, made of a steel or aluminum waterproof housing with thick glass lenses. The one I installed on the GRiSO was purchased in 2013 and taken off of one of my previous bikes, so they hold up well. The Triumph video shows day and night comparison.

That looks cool...so is that connected with a separate controller or spliced into the existing rear brake light?

Good on you ZR. It's a shame we need to draw attention to ourselves, for the great unwashed (tin top drivers, whose focus, if you are lucky is the end of their own vehicle - generally it's on their phone). Ban cars I say.

No controller needed, simple two wire hookup spliced into the existing brake light wiring in the tail section, 2nd wire is a ground wire. There's a 3rd wire that when touching to the power wire it changes the strobe pattern. So I hooked up an inline switch so that I can change the pattern at the push of a button that's hidden under the seat. The cost is under $25.00 and they are available here on Amazon [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] . If anyone orders one, make sure that you select the RED, they're available in different colors.

Looks good! Any pictures of how you mounted it and the wiring configuration with the switch you used?
