In many situations, motorcyclists will find themselves waiting long periods of time for a car to pull up and trip the sensor before they can proceed through the light. Under the new law, anyone riding a motorcycle, moped, bicycle, or tri-mobile can wait for two-traffic light cycles, and then legally run the light.
Many two-wheeled riders have already taken to doing this in Nevada, but now they don’t have to worry about getting a red light ticket.
The law is hard to enforce according to the Metro Police, as an officer much watch the entire process to be able to hand out a ticket, from the time the bike pulls up to the time it leaves.
New Products M11R:
RTD motorcycle LED Headlights
Dave Buerk isn’t just a fan of motorcycle safety; he’s actually a chief instructor for the Connecticut Rider Education Program (CONREP). To say that he does everything possible to make his ride a safe one is a monumental understatement. So when Harley came out with its vastly improved LED lighting for its Project RUSHMORE 2014 baggers, Daymaker, Dave read the reviews and promptly ordered a replacement headlight and fog lights for his 2009 FLHTCU Ultra Classic Electra Glide. Specifically, he purchased the Rayton Reflector LED headlight M11R and RTD Reflector LED auxiliary lights M02K.
Step 1: Dave removes the accessory chrome headlight trim ring with a Phillips screwdriver and puts it aside for reuse.
Dave is an exceptional rider, admirable coach, and all-around good guy. But a handy wrench, he is not. That said, he tackled the installation of the RTD LED lamps like a pro. Armed with only the few tools needed and a well-lit garage, Dave had the new plug-n-play lighting installed and running in about an hour and a half. And that includes time spent cleaning all the exposed nasty dirt when taking parts off the bike, pausing for pictures, and documenting each step.
The RTD LED Headlights imitate natural daylight by producing a bright-white color. Comparing them to the stock halogens, it’s a no brainer how much cleaner the light is. The headlight works by distributing two separate rays of light through two D-shaped lenses. The low beam shines light directly in front of the bike while the other projects a super-bright, focused high beam.
