Road King LED Taillight

I think the Road King was getting jealous by all the mods going on with the Sportster so I bought it a new taillight.  I had been running an aftermarket smoke laydown taillight with a Kuryakyn Iridium coated red incandescent bulb.  The bulb has a silver coating so it didn't look weird with the smoke taillight.  I liked the look but the thing I didn't like was that it wasn't very bright.  I use a run/turn/brake module so the rear turn signals double as running and brake lights and since those are LED, they outshined the Kuryakyn bulb considerably.  It was time for a change.

I bought a Custom Dynamics Genesis II smoke laydown taillight with 120 super bright LEDs.
 

Here's the old taillight (running light, brake not applied):

Installation was extremely easy.  Remove 2 screws, unplug old light, clean housing, plug in new light, and reinstall the 2 screws.

Running light (brake not applied):

The pictures don't do it justice, especially in daylight.  It's a lot brighter and more noticeable than the old light.
