Still waiting on a few parts, but this weekend I was able to get started on the metamorphosis. Starting with some electrical upgrades that will help with visibility whether I’m commuting or cannonball-running. First something called the Signal-Minder. It does a number of things – auto-cancels turn signals, turns the turn signals into running lights to help with visibility, and gives a hazard lights feature.
Second is an Admore Lighting kit. It replaces the reflectors on my top box with actual lights that turn off and on with the brake lights. This puts a brake light at eye-level for cars behind me. Anything that helps me be seen.
You know that phrase it’s gotta get worse before it gets better?
