More Vulcan 750 Shopping Opportunities

I logged on to ebay.uk.co today and searched the VN750 stuff, they have things you can't get here! I bought a little device that is hand-made that makes a noise when the turn signals are on. It came to $17 and change with shipping. I wanted it but also want to test the waters on international purchases/shipping. Will let you know how it works out.

For those doing seat projects, there are several seat covers available, reasonable with shipping. I bought a new cover on the U.S. Ebay site for $15 including shipping, but it was the only one I've ever seen. The U.K. Ebay site has several others available.

Take a look - shopping options if you're looking for something you can't get here in the U.S. Use your U.S. log on and Pay Pal.

Has no one heard of JC Whitney here?
(shipping from europe will cost you around 20 bucks or more for larger stuff...most times you have to ask why pay shipping when you can get it here?)

Yeah, you'd think the blinking light on your dash would be enough, but seems some folks miss that too. I always thought "paying attention" when you are riding meant paying attention to everything.....

I know most cars have beepers of some kind, still see cars going down the highway with the left signal on for MILES.

Guess age is my best excuse for forgetting to cancel the turn signal. That flashing yellow light goesn't vie for my attention like the cages I'm scanning 360 degrees for. But eventually I see it.

I'm keepin' all the left over parts. I'm gonna use 'em to build another bike!

I paid a grand total of $17.49 for the signal beeper and shipping to the U.S.; let's see that's about $30 cheaper than J.C. Whitney with their expensive shipping costs.

I pay attention to everything while I ride, but there are times when one forgets to cancel the signal, a reminder is a good thing. If I can save a life, including my own for less than $18 then I think that is a good deal.

if you are good with electronics you could go to radio shack and buy a pizio electric buzzer and hook it up to your turnsignal circuit, it would do the same thing . dont know the price but it would be a diy thing you could be proud of . we made one at work for testing fuzes and it works great
