    The great thing about the RFT tech is that unlike most leds, these can be aimed properly so they will not blind oncoming traffic (unless you have them aimed high to supplement the high beams). I have mine aimed to supplement the low beams and run them all the time to make me more conspicuous to cars. The Piaas are bright enough that they totally drown out the stock low beam, yet I never get flashed by oncoming cars.

    Yup, it's the Raven Riders theme song.


    It's fun to ride a black Ten-er-re
    It's fun to ride a black Ten-er-re

    They have everything that you need to enjoy,
    You can hang out with all the boys ...

    It's fun to ride a black Ten-er-re
    It's fun to ride a black Ten-er-re

    You can get yourself clean, you can have a good squeal
    You can do whatever you feel ...

    Young man, are you listening to me?
    I said, young man, what do you want to be?
    I said, young man, you can make real your dreams.
    But you've got to know this one thing!

    No man does it all by himself.
    I said, young man, put your pride on the shelf,
    And just go buy a black Ten-er-re
    I'm sure they can help you today.

    It's fun to ride a black Ten-er-re

    It's fun to ride a black Ten-er-re
    It's fun to ride a black Ten-er-re

    You can get yourself clean, you can have a good squeal
    You can do whatever you feel ...

    Young man, I was once in your shoes.
    I said, I was down and out with the blews.
    I felt no man cared if I were alive.
    I felt the whole world was so jive ...

    That's when someone came up to me,
    And said, young man, take a ride on my bike
    It's a place called the black Ten-er-ree
    It can start you back on your way.

    It's fun to ride a black Ten-er-re

    It's fun to ride a black Ten-er-re
    Young man, young man there's no need to feel down
    Young man, young man pick yourself off the ground

    Black Ten-er-re
    then just go ride the black Ten-er-re
    young man, young man I was once in your shoes
    young man, young man I said, I was down and out with the blews.
    Black Ten-er-re....

    So they took a little liberty with the original lyrics. Those owners are black and 'blew'
    all the way through.:wink:

    Sorry about your snow. I feel your pain. I'm going up again this weekend to play in the
    white sand.:bluduh
