    More specifically;
    Motorcycle Warning Products - Whelen Engineering Automotive

    I put a red winky one on my street bike and had my wife follow me to test it. When I hit my brakes and looked in the rear view mirror, I could clearly make out her face even though it was night and her headlights were on! She told me she needed a welding mask the brake light was so bright.

    Whelen makes the lights for most Law and Emergency vehicles.

    Problem I've found is they are so bright everyone things your on the brakes. Then when you do hit the brakes no one notices.

    For direct replacement of stock tail light with a LED bulb of vastly greater lumen output try searching Amazon’s variety of “LED 1157 Bulb”. Choose highest output.

    Or add additional lighting. I have been very impressed with brightness and quality of Powstro Led Car Motorcycle Strip Light, Universal 12" Flexible 36-LED Tail Brake Stop Light Bar Flowing Turn Signal Lights Position Marker Lamp SMD 3528. Flowing turn signals and very bright brake chipsets are very distinctive and will not be confused for slightly less bright tail light chip set array.
