    Talking Extreme tail-light

    I scored a RR crossing 8" red traffic barricade light with a 1/2" wide reflective band around the outside recently. I will install it on my rear rack with a 3 watt bulb inside and an in-line vibrator switch to make it blink. Hopefully people behind me will think," Oh My God! There is a 50 ton locomotive in front of me" and slow down.

    The RR crossing just down the road has changed to the 8" LED lights. Every time I have to stop and stare at them while the train passes I wonder...how long would it take for them to notice one of those lights "Fell Off"

    or you could spend a whopping $25 on a Superblink, and get a great light, without wasting a lot of time and effort...

    Yep, scored. A car went through a down gate in Irvine, CA and the police just threw the gate arms into the brush near the road. Saw it on my commute home. It sat there for days. I recycled the light. The schredded fiberglass arms may still be there. I suppose I could blow $25 on a "superblink" but where is the fun in that.

    Zero Enigma, I'll put up pixs one of there days. After I rig the 100 watt headlight.
