<p>Your idea inspired me to work out, on paper so far, using LED strips on a &quot;Stealth Black&quot; guitar that I own. Have to give it a &quot;test run&quot; and post the results if it works like I planned. Have to admit that is one wicked idea for motorcycles, really cool idea !!!</p>
<p>From what I heard only red &amp; blue together is illegal, and leds on bikes are illegal only if the light is shining in your eyes. It should be fine if you have every bulb hidden but the light can still reflects and comes out.

Don't use blue lights as these are designated for police use only. Other than that, good lighting on a bike is essential against the &quot;I didn't see you&quot; excuse.
Illegal here in Ohio for sure. I really want to add some LEDs to my ride though
Omg this is badass. :)
Awesome looking project - I want to do this with my cruiser for more visibility at night. What is a good source for the remote relay box?
