    Was looking out my window and I saw...

    What looked like a nearly new moped/scooter thing... Pretty normal, no?
    This one has a frigging blue CCFL stuck to the bottom!! Exactly like the one in my computer!!

    Of all the times to randomly look out the window and I saw that... Christ! The things people do!

    Anyway just thought I'd tell you lot...

    The fact that it was broad daylight and you could see everything but the nice glow on the road was kinda pathetic too!

    i know someone who's got neons under his scooter, and a little switch down by his foot embedded into the plastic so he can turn em on n off quickly and discretely if needs be (i.e. the coppers...), and it looks damn stupid. i would never dream of making my 50cc crotch rocket (hahahaha, i do love exageration) look that stupid, it looks stupid standard, hehe

    That's what you thought it was - it was actually the Flux Capacitor - when that baby hits 88mph.... er hang on, not much chance of that ! Doh ! Perhaps its just cause there's nowhere to mount LED washer jets on it and he felt left out !

    I don't understand the reasoning to having it underneath most cars tbh, yes it looks good on a riced up eclipse in california but not on a metro in essex

    On a side note - somewhat related to daft lighting - some mush got done for driving with fog lights on in broad daylight the other day. 30quid fine, which was good, and numpties with 15 neons need fining too imo.
