The LED'S are not dot approved gentlemen, and are terrible, do not rely on them for rear lighting. I cut my wires off and sealed up. They are a very pretty teardrop light and look very pretty even when not plugged in.

Don't you mean most LED's are not D.O.T. approved?

Who wanted pictures of top loading Mutazu bags? I just posted a bunch in my gallery for ya. I bought the GA Mutazu bags last year for about $115 and mounted them on the Kawasaki saddlebag supports. So far I've been pretty happy with them. They aren't as robust as the LeatherLyke bags I have on my other bike, but they're a lot prettier and go with the look of the VN750 better. -Sloppy.
