Angel eyes

angel eyes are what some of you have seen on of bmw's cages.
Lately i have seen them on bikes and think they are a great eye catcher. Really makes you stand out in traffic and gets you noticed. I found a "how too" diy if anyone is interested and have also seen them for sale on the net. My only question is if some of the for sale ones will fit my bike? Anyways there is the "diy" info for anyone thats intrested. Also if anyone has angel eyes on their bike feel free to throw in some input, pro's, cons, etc. Oppinions welcome.

I would use CCFL as long as you can seal the inverter from the elements.

I use CCFL through the engine compartment of my Scion, and I dipped each inverter in a silicone like bath. 2 years and still going strong!

Hit up Firebretha. I am not sure if he has ever done it, but his retro taillights are the shizzle. If Rick does it, I would like to take a look at it.

Life's Journey Is Not To Arrive At The Grave Safely In A Well Preserved Body, But Rather To Skid In Sideways, Totally Worn Out, Shouting "HOLY SHIT... What A Ride!"

All you have to do is follow three simple rules. One, never under estimate your opponent (mentality). Expect the unexpected (could work out in your favor). Two, take it outside(or to a table). Never start anything inside the Bar unless it's absolutely necessary. And three, be nice.
