    I need illumination for my license plate with my RPG rear bumper. I have seen the LED Tag Bolts and interested in getting a set. I asked forum member JustinBieber, specifically which ones he went with after reading one of his posts. He choose these:

    Amazon.com: Rupse 2* White LED Motorcycle, Car License Plate Screw Blot Light: Everything Else


    Also, asked DezRaceSVT which ones he used with his custom built bumper, which were ones from Pep-boys.

    I am very appreciative for them taking the time to help. Awesome that there's people very willing to assist in you in our little online community.

    However, surfing Amazon while viewing the ones JustinBieber purchased only complicated the decision making process. I need them ASAP, so I'm probably gonna just pick something in the morning. Everything is closed at the moment, so I can't effectively make an impulse buy anyway... Too bad I couldn't, because I stress over the little details.

    I happened across these on Amazon, liked them and went directly to their website to investigate further:

    Tag Bolts Motorcycle LED License Plate Frame Light Illuminator - LED Tag Bolts

    Anyhow, on to my question... I like the idea of having two different LED colors serving multiple functions. Would you choose the secondary light color to be red for brakes OR amber to use as another safety light? I imagine I could even put the amber LED on a switch that would control all safety lights, perhaps even with a flashing pattern. Hope to hear y'all's input before the morning.

    Any suggestions, recommendations please let me know.

    ... Oh and I called RPG. The bolt size is 1/4" or 6mm, either works (if anyone else is in this pickle).

    Dan,
    For whatever it's worth, I personally like the black tag bolts with a red rear led and white tag light. Having the red led illuminate when the brakes are pressed would be pretty sweet and add an extra factor of safety.

    Kinda what I was thinking. The amber safety light idea just kinda sparked my interest as being nifty as well, after reading MobileBeats's "Whelen Vertex Rear Facing Ambers" thread a hundred times.

    I'm definitely doing that in the near future.

    Do they have license plate lighting? I'm unable to find anything on their site.
