Default HyperLite install - 2012 CCT

As I have no plans to ever remove the rear trunk I accessed the wiring alongside the left SB mounts. I placed the ground wire using one of the unused forward holes already in the upper SB mount with a simple bolt and washer for a good connection.. I have the Hyperlites on a frame underneath the license frame out of the way.

This is the 3rd bike I have had my HL on.

sometimes I think a tour trunk would be a really nice addition, but every time I mention it my wife makes fun of me. Just like when I admire a bike with a fairing, she calls 'em "old guy bikes." But it sure is nice knowing you can haul around exactly as much stuff as you want.

You can call me Billy. Or Luci. But don't call me Shirley.

Have same lights on my CCT and love them. Be careful with any high pressure hose. It loosened one of the glue points and had to JB Weld it back on. Cheers, Jim.

Exactly how much I want is usually just a bit more than I actually have room for!

Update:

Riding in town today people were definitely stopping much further back behind me.
Proof positive the hyperlites get noticed.
