    Whimpie Blinkie

    Today I was at work, driving my work vehicle, I passed this guy with a sick blinkie, and it's like dark.
    I tried to stop the guy and offer him free batteries,
    All I wish to say is that a half way decent set of BELL lights is available from Wal-Mart, with a blinkie that can be seen.
    Another thing, setting them on other than ALL LED's flashing at once is not good, BE SEEN.

    I just don't want any of yall to get run over.
    I hate cars,

    The trouble with lights with nearly dead batteries is that they will look bright when you first turn them on (even though the batteries are low), but will quickly fade. So you may set out thinking that everything is fine, but not realize your batteries are gone until you get home.

    Too bad he didn't have a super-sexy FG/SS. If you're riding one of those you don't really need a light because all the cars notice you because of how super-sexy your bike is.

    I swear!

    I would think you don't a light because you are illuminated from the glow of your halo.
