LED Lights

I have seen very few classics out in the road, and I never seen a Triumph bike with LEDs on it. Why is this? Are LED lights some sort of taboo on the classic style bikes?

Most bike manufactures have not factored LED light due to the cost of changing wiring harness. So you have to make a few changes due to the flash rate. See the following link for more info.

I have seen other Bonnies in Erie. Sadly, about the amount I can count on one hand, but there are some in a sea of HDs.

If you're looking for excellent quality LED running lights, these are the ones.
I have them on both of my machines.

I kinda meant more like bike frame and such with LED strips.

Although, I wasn't aware how much modification was needed for the LED flashers. Surprised that isn't a COTS item readily available from like British Customs or something.

LEDs do not make your bike #1 go faster #2 turn better #3 stop better or #4 ride better.
