Flushmount turn signals?? Hotbodies or Protons??

I want a pair of flush mount signals for my bike but not sure which to buy. I like the Protons and Hotbodies. The cool peeps at M.U. said the Hotbodies are better quality and are brighter. I've only seen pics of these two but never on the road. I want something drivers can see during the day. Anyone have a pair these? What are your opinions? I'm not worried about the cost just want to be visible on the road.

Drivers won't see either ones during the day! Your lucky if they see it during the night. They are flushmounts dude - if you wanna be seen, go with the stock.

I've had both - liked the Hotbodies more then the Protons.

I like the protons we have mounted a few. I think I like them because they are different though no functional reason.

Yeah BlackWidow...I understand flushmounts will always be harder to see over typical signals. I just want opinions on which of the 2 are better seen.

I have Watsen Design on my Bandit, they are pretty bright. Dunno if they make them for the Gixxer or not...

move your turn signals into your headlight (euro style), and then cover the holes...making it flush, and visible to drivers in front...

i had done this to my bike...
