I think it looks really cool. I wanted to do red myself because its my favorite color and for visibility reasons. But as far as I know, isn't it illegal to ride with that on?

I installed them all last night, then rode down town for like 2 hours. Past several police with them on. They are legal how I have them installed, and I installed them a certain way. I have the texas law somewhere in my bookmarks regarding this.

As long as the leds are not slaped on the outside of the bike, it is fine. For example all of the leds are hidden, all you see is the glow where I accented certain areas on the bike.

Again everything is on a switch, 100% weather-proof, and 100% in compliance with DOT and TX laws.

Hmmm, I think if a cop wanted to, he could consider that the red light is visible in the center front of the bike. But it seems the sides and back are not regulated, and those would be my main areas of concern anyways yesss. Good job.

I've heard of people catching some flack for blinking/strobing brakelights... so, technically legal in Texas?

these are perfectly legal so i dont really see why your lights wouldn't be. many cops have already seen this bike and discussed it.
