After a lot of procrastination, I put the headlight flasher in last night. In the vid, the strobes are on too, but they're flashing too fast for the camera to catch anything but an occasional flash. The Whelan flasher has 7 different settings. The one in the vid speeds up and slows down the flash rate.

I also got a set of these for the local cruise nights:

Everyone says it looks like a death-mobile, so why not reinforce the notion?

The strobes came with an epilepsy warning :-)

THose flags are great, but stay at REALLY slow speeds with them,. The Magnetic bases on the Hearse CLub flags are ****ing AWESOME, but they flags themselves catch a LOT of wind and can fly off your car and bombard other vehicles. I have totally done this on the highway with no streetlamps and had to circle back and find them

Yeah, I just got them for the cruise-ins and car shows (same reason for the wig wags and strobes). I don't plan to drive around with them. I've seen companies that claim that they have "50 MPH" magnetic flag holders, but I don't believe it.
