Great Picts Dev. Thanks for sharing.

If I might ask, how many miles did you ride on your trip?

I can probably figure it out by looking at the trip number from when I put the new tires on, but I would guess it was only about 350 miles....

The first day we were there, it was very cold, so we hiked...
The next day we went to the tail, so over the Cherohala, did the tail 5x, then back around to the cabin...
The next day the girls went shopping, so I took the bike in to Blue Ridge and they took the cage....
The next day it rained all day long....
And the next day, it snowed in the morning.....and was forecasted for the roads to freeze overnight, so we left that day instead of the one additional day we were going to be there....I still rode from Coker Creek in Tennessee to Mercier Orchard in Georgia before loading the bike up on the trailer....34 degrees....wind chill said it made it feel 29....way too cold for this Florida boy....

so the only real riding was one day of the Cherohala and dragon....
other than that, it was a few trips in to town in Telico Plains, the shopping ride, and the ride to Mercier....

I should of had a bunch of picture's of the Rally but the used GoPro I bought after losing my first one either didn't like the mini SD card I had or my -technodummyidis- set in and I screwed the settings up. Oh well it is what it is.
So that's one of 3 Pic's out of almost 50 that you can make out to some extent what it was. The owner wasn't there at the moment but his buddy said he had 30 to 35K in the bike and although not my style at all at least admit it was a nice bike with a fairly decent sound system. While walking around found a large tent (50' x 40' maybe) that was selling and installing LEDs. Not sure if it was the same pod and strip kit you have but they had one that was 4 strips and 6 pods installed for 300 or 350. that had I think 6 deferent preset patterns and a 2 customizable (not even 90% sure on that). Their biggest kit for a Slingshot was 999 installed.....! Holly cow that's not cheap. If it was the one on display then it made the thing look like a new era disco on wheels that pulsed to the beat of its 8 speaker stereo. I've got to get this GoPro fixed and hit the Lottery.

@Avintage69 if you're interested in LEDs, get the same kit from the company I have...it's a really good kit - all of their LED products are great - and their customer service is excellent - they let me purchase 2 different sets of headlights, INSTALL AND TEST THEM BOTH to see which I liked better, and send the one back with a prepaid label that I didn't want...
not sure if this was a special case thing for being a kickstarter backer since their inception, or if they treat everyone like that, but I've never heard of a company allowing you to install and fire up a product and then send it back....send it back with no restocking fee....and pay for the shipping back to them....

Full RGB (so something like 16 million color choices)....2 channels so you can have 2 different colors at once.....a chameleon mode so you can use your phone's camera to select a color you want, the smartbrake feature to change your lights all red when you hit the brake....and tons of preset patterns for changing colors, with the ability to make your own in whatever way you want....it also has something where the lights can correspond to audio from your phone or get brighter the faster you go with your GPS....

Last night, I actually used one of the preset patterns for hazards...it does 3 quick alternating flashes of white and then yellow.....one of my buddies had his glasses fly off, so we were looking for them...everyone appreciated me being in the back with those lights while we were driving slow in the left lane and searching

I just went to their page and they have a 10% off special on all motorcycle kits
I would do this one...
XKchrome iOS Android App Bluetooth Control Advanced 8 pod 4 strip kit for LED Motorcycle Neon Underglow Accent Light Kit Campatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch

and then add 2 10" strips

I guess lm not the type for the big bling but respect those that are. Now for the purpose of visibility... I like it. That is as long as it can be controlled for those needed stealth mode moments.
