What Is Lightning Strike
Lightning Strike is a unique lighting system designed to make a motorcycle more visible while traveling on the road. It uses high-intensity, optical LED lights that notify a driver a motorcycle is near or approaching. There is no need for a separate controller to operate our systems, which makes installation easy. Fewer parts means greater reliability. The lights are impact-resistant and completely waterproof. Greater visibility in traffic increases your survivability rate. The system is used just like a horn. It is normally off, but can be activated by simply pressing a button whenever needed to gain more visibility and become noticed, using a safe, brilliant flash. Hold down the button as long as needed to get a driver’s attention in a variety of driving situations, then let go of the button and the system turns off. Use it day or night to become more visible at intersections, merging and passing situations, congested city driving or open highway driving. Use it in poor weather conditions for enhanced visibility. Our intelligent, optical LED lights are available in amber or white for the general public. We also have blue, red or green for Police, undercover or escort riders and credentials are verified prior to sale.
Lightning Strike was designed to address the current problem of a driver failing to yield to a motorcycle. It happens every day. Nearly 2/3 of all collisions between a car and a motorcycle are due to the car driver failing to yield to the motorcycle. In most cases the drivers stated they never saw the motorcycle approaching. The sad fact is, we are not being seen. Distracted driving is making the situation even worse with people texting, talking and checking email behind the wheel. People are looking down while driving. A benefit of Lightning Strike’s bright LEDs it grabbing a driver’s peripheral vision. When a driver sees a flashing light out of the corner of their eye, it can help break their fixation with the phone and pay attention to the larger task at hand;…DRIVING. Where a horn is an AUDIBLE signal, Lightning Strike is a VISUAL signal. With a visual signal, there is little doubt where the signal is coming from. We recommend having both systems on your motorcycle so people can see and hear you. Every bit helps. You are probably remembering a time when you were cut-off or someone didn’t see you. How could you have changed that situation? Quite simply, people are not watching the road and disaster can strike at any second. Lightning Strike Systems are worth every penny…a small investment for such a great return. What is your life worth? ITS TIME FOR A CHANGE AND THE TIME IS NOW…FIGHT BACK WITH LIGHTNING STRIKE.

What Is Flashback
Flashback is an auxiliary, rear-mounted warning system that notifies a motorist following you that your motorcycle is slowing or stopping. The light will activate any time you apply your brake. It is not a brake light. It is wired into your motorcycle’s existing brake wire and is energized by applying your hand brake or foot brake. It will light a high-intensity, flashing red, optical LED for approximately one second with 9 short blasts of bright, red light, then it will automatically turn off, even with your brake still applied. The system logic is built right into the light module, so there are no additional controllers or bulky devices. Any time you release and re-apply the brake, the light flash cycle will repeat. There are no switches for this system other than your brake handle/lever. it is fully automatic based on your braking activity.
Flashback was designed to address the current problem of a driver rear-ending a motorcycle. Many motorcycles have brake light systems that are not very bright and drivers often have a hard time seeing a motorcycle stopping. Flashback is a quick blast of light to get a driver’s attention and make them see that you are braking or stopping. Like our Lightning Strike products, a benefit of Flashback’s bright LEDs is possibly alerting a driver’s peripheral vision if they are distracted. The quick burst of a flashing red light get their attention. If you are sitting at a traffic light and your Flashback system has already timed-out and you see a car coming up behind you, just release and re-apply the brake and Flashback will begin flashing again. Works great for the distracted driver. Flashback is available in a variety of kit styles, including a license plate frame, flat-mount, tour pack mount, bagger (dual light). All designs have a factory appearance and fitment.

SAFETY TIP: Remember…when you are downshifting to slow your motorcycle (and not applying your brake), your chances of being rear-ended are much greater because there is no brake light warning the driver behind you. Use your brakes and let Flashback help them see you.
