As the subject indicates, this is a recap of my shopping experience with
The Electrical Connection, Knoxville, TX.
My contact with them came from, I believe, the mention of their site this
last week in our Digest. The topic then was driving lights and their
mounts. This place is a goldmine!
FYI, I've ordered the following:
1) A set of small chrome lights that mount on the outside of the mirrors
and flash with the turn signals for view by those who may be alongside.
2) An ABS plastic repair kit.
3) A turn signal conversion kit that adds a red light to each of the rear
turn signals, making them into running lights until the turn signals flash
their normal amber color.
4) A Power Plate, which is relay-powered auxiliary fuse box for wiring
5) A Handlebar Switch mount configured with a momentary switch, designed
for handlebar-activated CB use (it could also be used with their Headlight
Cutoff wiring for Light Parades, etc).
Total Cost: $134.25, plus shipping.
This is an interesting shop. Prices are very reasonable, and the gentleman
who answered the phone was very helpful and pleasant to deal with. While
the product was originally developed for the Goldwing, he's now developed
product for every touring bike except the Cavalcade. He suggested that if
I've any problems during installation, I should use the 800# to call for
And I was reminded that he'd been contacted by someone wanting driving
lights for our 'Cade. His comment was that if someone in or near Knoxville
is willing to come to the shop for a couple of hours, they will make up the
brackets for his machine in their shop (they manufacture their own product)
and install the lights for free (they would then have the template for all
future orders). I would imagine that if that person could stay awhile, or
even leave the bike, the other systems could also be tailored to the 'Cade.
So Y'all who like to play with lights and such should go visit!
