My Chinese Eurobet Fairings

Thin, no rolled edges like stock
needed holes widened
no gromets
bit of white overspray but can’t really see it on black with how much clear coat
windscreen nicer than the aftermarket i currently have (surprise!)
intake cover complete junk, rough and looks like it was only primered
rear passenger holes need to be widened
bolt mounts for pillion seat lock dont even come close to lining up
different bolt size and thread for the lock mount (see above about alignment)
interior of headlight cover overspray all over, looks like shit from the saddle
paint cure ok, not stellar
heat shield a plus, but would have had more and placed higher
front tire hugger was a little too friendly with the tire
prepare to apply heat to your shiny new parts

Strobe (Wig Wag) Brake Lights in Iowa

NOTE: This information is dated 12/09/2014 and may become obsolete in the future

I’ve been researching the legality of strobe brake lights (sometimes referred to as wig-wags). I contacted the Polk County Sheriff Department to ask and they provided the Iowa Code below. I have highlighted the section of interest. It’s ambiguous at best, but it looks like they are legal by the “letter of the law”. I’ve contacted an attorney but have not heard back. Emphasis mine.

Of particular note is the “prohibited except” and the “intent to stop” language.
