Whats up w/ neon & strobe?

Does anyone have neon or strobes on their bike?


Is it illegal to have or just illegal to ride with them on?

Consensus?

from what I understand.... its legal to own, but not drive with. Its a show thing.
But you put something like that and then you get bastardized with the "Bling blings" and "squids" comments.

Yes technically it is against the law. most cops wont bother you for a litle neon. but the strobes piss them off. I do have blue Neon onmy Busa but it hasnt worked in over a year. I've been meaning to pull it off there.




HDTony.... Damn glad to meet you!

it is illegal to have any lites blinking other then amber and white
and when it comes to strobes..if you even have white, let ALONE blue or red...you will be ticketed as such and possible impersonating the police which is a felony charge.

Ctually you can have blue and red if stopped or at a show but they cannot even be displayed while moving. A guy I know has a car he shows that is painted like a cop car with lights and everything. At the shows he has blue and red lenses and leaves them on.

When he gets ready to leave, he has to swap the lenses for clear so that he is legal.

Technically you could have neon on while driving as well. The rule is that it has to be red or yellow. Similar to tail lights or park lights. If you look at the law it says that no other lighting other than red or yellow can be displayed from the rear of the vehicle. Essentially you run the red or yellow neon's as if they are running lights. Similar to what a lot of trucks have on front visors and stuff. I think there is one other stipulation as well though about the brigthness of them.

My thought was that you can only have certain colors visible from the front and back. For the front would be white and orange...while the back can be white, orange, or red. If the neons are only visible from the sides then it's legal I think. Deerfield PD told me that.

I have LED blue flashing "tyre flies" on the wheels of the Fizzer, I can't believe they are illegal They are stupid little valve cap covers, that blink a small blue LED strobe, so when your at speed you tires look like they have blue neon on them, at a stand still they blink blue for 30 seconds and turn off, and this is illegal
