Well, I don’t normally do this but, I like their products so much I thought I would pass this along.  Custom Dynamics has a new and much easier to use website.  Something that was long overdue.

If you are not familiar with Custom Dynamics they create lighting replacement and accessories for nearly all cruisers.  I have purchased two of their products so far and I am very happy with both.  I first purchased their LED Turn Signal Inserts (5 Stars from me) and then their Magic Strobe Brake Light Flasher (5 Stars from me) for the tour pak.  I wrote a blog review of the flasher not sure way I did not do one for the turn signals.  You can read my post on the flasher here 

The new Custom Dynamics site is a vast improvement over their old site. Now you can more easily search for products by brand.  I particularly liked their “new products” section and because of that I am now interested in their vent lighting.  SIGH… will this bike ever be finished?!?!

In West Virginia it is illegal to use additional LED lights while riding.  Bob Cunningham, who lives in Martinsburg, WV, did not know that either until a State Trooper pulled him over and handed him a ticket.  But that traffic stop set Cunningham on a mission to change the law.

First, Mr. Cunningham gathered more than 1,000 signatures on a petition supporting the change and then he enlisted his State Delegate John Overington in the cause.  He convinced Mr. Overington of the safety enhancements that come from the auxiliary lighting and gave him a battery operated example of the LED lights that Overington could use in support of a bill to allow the lights.

Long story short, Delegate Overington pushed for the bills approval and it passed the House of Delegates but ran out of time in the State Senate.  Mr. Overington is going to reintroduce the bill in the next session of the WV legislature and work with the Transportation Committee to get the bill into consideration faster.
