Found a spot on the front that a 12" light fits very nicely. Trying to convince Reggy at TricLed to make a knight rider mod for me so this light bounces back and forth here like KITT.

I could make it do that, but only if there are 8 LED segments in the string. One of the programs for the Butterfly microcontroller does that with 8 LED lights.

With white lights, it may be legal, similar to the headlight modulator products. The federal law states it has to modulate 240 cycles per minute +/- 40 cycles. Also, can not modulate the headlight at night. With red lights, it would be a problem I am sure.

With the Butterfly controller, you could program many different lighting settings. daytime running lights (all lights on steady), off, Knight Rider, all flashing, random flashing patters....

I'm not sure you could get away with a " modulated " headlight either as they are not supposed to be able to run at night, that's why they have a sensor to make sure they don't operate at night

true, but means another switch of some sort and then possibly another just to turn the lights on/off

seems to be such a hassle for a "conversation" piece . I guess maybe on a show bike that never gets ridden
