Tested Full Lighting On Trike....

Post by Meat Hunter » Sat Jul 19, 2014 7:55 pm

Finally -- The moment of truth that I have been working & waiting months for.

Tonight, I put the canopy frame and canopy on my trike, installed all the blue & yellow Elwire on the canopy/frame, bike frame and front & rear baskets, the blue LED lights on the spokes of my three wheels and the red mini-strobe flashers on the four canopy frame up-rights.

As soon as it became totally dark, I turned everything on -- ABSOLUTELY MAGICAL.

I know that will not be the most creative or lit-up personal transportation on the playa at night, but I think that I will be able to hold my own with most of the also-rans. And, keep from being squashed into a greasy spot by most of the MV's with the sprites and light & airy spirits dancing on top

Truly sorry, but no images.

Being in my dotage and not as computer literate as I wish or as my younger cohorts, I am doing good to get this contraption turned on and post anything on e-playa -- although I am getting better.

If the truth were to accidentally slip out, I was ecstatic when I actually able to manipulate the ticket purchasing process without assistance. I am still surprised at that one.

Just you wait. I will make sure that I find you on the playa -- somehow. And, I will let you take a jaunt on this electrified buggy.

I am not saying that it is overly bright, but a neighbor commented this evening that any of the stalls in the Amsterdam red light district would be envious.

I remember trying to find Junglesmacks when he had a wall of light on his pants. No luck! The playa is one big place!

Stay glad and be proud. Never compare. There is always someone who has done something bigger, brighter, better, or more ingeniously than you did.

I too wish you had pictures, but there's a warmth in my heart that you can't post any. I like the idea that there is something that needs to be seen in person. It reminds me of "the old days" when nobody expected pictures to be e-mailed (or mailed). It was an okay world to live in. Getting to see everything instantly definitely has its drawbacks.
