under lights on bike?

What do you guys think about the lights people put under/around your their bikes? At first i didnt care for them but now they are growing on me. Anyone know what the laws are regarding the lights? I was thinking of going with white lights (bike = red silver)

goto EPO and get the LED strips. 3 bux a peice. I did my installation myself for under $40, thats cause I bought connectors to make everything come off easily too. They are legal as long as they aren't flashing red or blue and they don't light up the road something like 70 feet away (which they wont).

^ and like I stated, red & blue ok as long as it is not visible from the front or rear.

That statement compliments of the Dept of Public Safety, motorcycle safety division. If you want/need a copy of the email let me know.

yep, suprised the heck outta me. :-)

I was expecting another run-around answer like the stuff I was getting before. Always thought it was funny they talk about visibility and all that stuff, but then essently tell you to leave the bike completely stock.
