    Lens size seems very small to offer great visibility. Will have to check at HD dealer. Please turn off the dealership lights!

    Very, Very Safe and a great Idea. F.Y.I. the lights are “Killer” bright and a small Lithium Button 3068 or 3128 will power those lights for a Thousand hours! Now all you Helmet “Un-Wearers” Who is going to be the first to get one?

    I wonder if they licensed this from the Akuma helmet company who has done this for years?

    They are brighter at night in the dark.

    Yep, other have been doing this so it must be a license deal.

    In a previous post (somewhere) cyril talked about a small
    LED device for clothing. I use one made for cyclist that is
    very small. Clip it on the top rear of your jacket collar for
    night visibility and then in bad weather (rain/fog) put it in
    flash mode for true visibility by others. Also look at small
    “frog” led’s to put on your backrest luggage. In clear or red
    they raise the visibility that your low down turn signals/running lights
    don’t accomplish in a world of Trucks, SUV’s.

    Greg.. in the article

    “Each light is powered by a AAA battery for 14 hours of continuous illumination, with an on/off switch conveniently located on the side of the helmet.”

    Looks nice for those that are concerned with safety.

    nice option but how well it fits the rider and durability is ultimate.

    Somehow “RoboCop” comes to mind. Wiz

    Wow, Harley blows me away with their radical innovation. What next? A vest that plugs into your bike that integrates with the brake lights and utilizes tassels for turn signals? This shit it lame. Just ride your motorcycle in a way that does not allow you to get rear ended instead of worrying about turning your helmet lights on and off.

    Note: If you are thinking of getting this as your first helmet, sell your motorcycle and do us all a favor.

    A better practice is to wear a white helmet. A white helmet increases conspicuity from all directions, not just for the back of the rider’s head. A passenger riding behind someone wearing the LED half helmet will obscure the LED lights making them useless.

    if your rideing sumone the one the person in front cuts theirs off and the riders lights would be seen ! does that help you ?

    full face helmet and half helmet that was invented by two guys out of Lewisburg Tn ,the lights
    will stay lit for over 300 hours stright , the concept was DOT approved back in 2007 by them
    through a testing Company called Southern Impact, you seen the Movie Tron, these Guys got
    it, the lights are under different color lens their logo is M1C ,standing for Motoshi One Crown
    Akuma has the Leds glued in vents i don’t know how the harley leds are but i seen these guys
    helmets they are fantastic! They also have different Color LEDS that match the Leds that some
    riders put under their motorcycles, and i here one helmet has over 40 leds in the shell and the
