Enduro Turn Signals that make sense

Spendy for sure, but a cool idea. Take a look:

wow, that seems so obvious, and doesn't seem like it'd be difficult at all to build. You could probably easily build a set using a stereo jack for the rear that could do stop/turn/tail.
There, I said it.

They are not actually new. Have been around at least since the 70's. The Sprint I rode had them.

They work for about 5 minutes, then you find some dirt...

I just replace mine at the rate of couple per year ($15 each at KTM dealer)

Lol, I have no doubt the Berg would rattle those babies off in less than 5 minutes. However, the point is to take them off when you find dirt silly! Anyway, I may try my hand at making a burlier more MX friendly version with an attached cover for the inlet so as to keep the dirt out when removed. Anyway, I thought they were neat.

our dirt sections are connected by the public road, that's when the rangers get you... I have never been asked for my registration but on at least one occasion Ranger mentioned lack of blinkers being illegal.... followed by "I really don't care, you guys are awesome, we need more like you!" They are out there to catch morons with Jeeps who think they can navigate a goat path motorcycle trail.
