We need a tail light from Lupine

As does a few other makers of high end headlights. This would start some competition in the field of tail light manufacturing. DiNotte and Niterider is really the only ones that makes a high end super bright tail light. Don't get me wrong the Cateye 1000,BLT super doopler and Planet bike super flash are great lights. I would love to see more of these cutting edge company's get involved in the tail light world. This would up the bar for all tail light manufactures.

This is what I want from a tail light 200 to 250 lumen's(not sure if thats possible with red LEDS lights), With multiple output levels at the flick of a remote switch. Now wouldn't that be nice for someone approaching you at high rate speed and blammo 200 lumen of red light flashing at high rate of speed.

What do you guys think?

i'm all for tailights that sear the retinas of inattentive drivers.

a few years back when i ws riding to work every night (nightshift) I got so pissed off at being almost hit so many times from behind, that i mounted an old nightsun team issue behind my seat, with TWIN 50 watt (prejector bulbs) halogen narrow spots , and custom red glass lenses in place of the clear glass lens. I had a 10 amp hour SLA on the rear rack to power just the taillights. Very effective, you could see it from over 6kms on a straightaway , even with fog.
