    Anyone using BMW aux led brake lights?

    I'm considering adding additional brake lights on a 12GS. The BMW lights look interesting

    Not on a GS, but K1300S.
    Dealer installed them on our bikes at purchase and they work great.

    I had one on my R12C Montauk. Cars seemed to stay further back. Intend on putting one on my new RT.

    Didn't use the BMW aux light, went with skene design P3 lights
    So far I've done about a dozen installs for friends, who couldn't or wouldn't ride without them
    Great light

    I like them and have one on 2/3 of my bikes but some prior information could be helpful.

    The BMW light is on whenever your taillight is on and when you activate brakes the light blinks brighter rapidly maybe only twice and then remains lit brighter, just like your brake light. It's pretty subtle, and almost a flicker, but I imagine it's effective.

    As with everything else, factory styling is better than aftermarket styling and of course these are made to fit your bike so it's plug and play and there's no modification to existing wiring.

    It looks like it's either the BMW or the Skene. Both have advantages.

    I wish I could see them on a bike

    Couldn't agree more. I like the constant flicker. Great Product!
