Default white led accent lights

I've only been able to find a couple pics with them on warrior, what does everyone think about white lighting on a warrior? I'm thinking about putting a couple led strips on the underside of the tank and rear fender.

I've always thought they look cool, unfortunately the police don't feel the same way. I say go for it just don't ride with them on. I'm sure the laws differ state to state.

Can't understand how extra lighting is illegal on a motorcycle,weather it's accent lighting or driveing lights, If you have a semi truck it can be lite up like a christmas tree,I would tell any Judge that is insane to ticket a well lite bike.

I know in my state any extra lighting emitting from the sides of a vehicle is deemed unlawful (exhibition lighting is what the cops call it i think). They claim it to be a distraction to other drivers,but being completely blinded by somebodies hid lights is legal (go figure that one out) also any lighting colors that are associated with emergency vehicle are illegal.

Ditto for us here in MA. The cops seem to be pretty relaxed about it UNLESS your riding around with red/blue lights, and they flicker or flash. Hard to blame them for not wanting people to "kinda" look like an emergency vehicle.

I think it will look cool..especially on your bike and wheels..and lights on a big truck..lol..I had a truck with 180 led lights on it, and a woman still ran into the side of me..can never have enough..and I was ticketed in that truck in ohio for my license plate light being mounted on the wrong side of the plate...

I would think that as long as you stay away from the colors associated with emergency vehicles (here it is red or blue that the cops don't like) and that you are not lit up like a christmas tree you should not have too much of a problem unless you hit a cop who just is simply a jerk or did not get any when he woke up. a few strategically placed LEDS should be cool.

I have white LED strips under tank and back fender. Looks great and never had any problems with cops. Actually got the lights at Walmart for $18/pair. I'll get some pics later if needed. The strips are on frame, under tank, and under rear fender on the verticle sides...

Space, if you could post some pics that would be great, that's pretty much what I'm looking to do. I don't wanna go crazy with lights, just a few under the tank, rear fender and maybe frame
