New LED's

I put LED strips under each side of the tank. Gonna mount a few more around the swingarm (facing rear tire), and in the chin scoop (facing the front bottom of the engine), when I find time. May even do a couple of other spots as well. I ran power direct off the battery using a battery tender pigtail (for the fuse) to a lighted switch that I mounted at the ignition switch. Here is a couple of quick pics. I'll get more pics once I get the other lights mounted and can get a decent shot of the entire bike outside.

Nice lighting! I'm seriously looking into LCD lighting as well. But I don't want to over do it. I've seen to many bikes that looks light Christmas tree's!

Nice lights and I see them all the time at my local bike nights. I'm on the fence about lighting my ride. But the lights look good on your ride, good job!

i hooked my uncle with quick release brackets and we mounted his saddle bags. well he didnt know was i took the liberty to install additional items on his saddle bags.
we are all about Z.O.R.T. for those who dont know (zombie outbreak response team) so he has that projected on the ground. i just had a 9v battery with a switch so theres no wires to hook up to the bike.

here what I did for my light on my Shadow
Go to AutoZone and look in the import tuner area they sell the LED strips for like 12 to 19$
it the kind u see on the Ghetto cars so they can make the cheap headlight rings.

they just have 3m tape back and I use a zip strip or 2 just to secure them in place and wire up to a switch or even a constant power. they are cheap and easy to replace
