Nice, thanks!

Where did you get these things with 2" stems?  I bought some a year ago from NFG, and they didn't have any but the ones without stems...

They're in the NFG catalog, Page 115, center, item # Z90457, Amber, 2 inch stem. The photo shows the one with the 2" stem, $15.75 each.
The NFG site lists only the short-stemmed unit, so it's best to order them on the phone.
I ordered 4ea. and the two front units clear the forks nicely when mounted in the factory brackets.
IF you decide to use brackets NFG has pre-modified brackets for $3.98 ea +shipping. I didn't write down the part #, but Tim or Gary are most helpful, so whichever way you go, give 'em a call.

Ohhhh, yeah - the print catalog... I remember now.  They didn't have them when I was shopping.  Maybe I'll look into getting a pair for the rear, since I still haven't sorted that back end lighting out yet...

Thanks!

the best deals on short stemmed taillights come from Cycle Gear, about $17.00 a pair with a variety of shapes to choose from.

I've got lots of pics! Unfortunately, that's about all that's left.
I did put the same turn signals on the Goose, though

            After all this latest tail/brake/license bracket & directional blinker light work that I just finished I still don't like it even though it "looks" good. I think the next time I reeely have nothing better to do I'm going to switch to an even smaller blinker light like in your picture & THIS time I will paint any visible chrome black to make them "disappear" more.

           I would remove them totally, but there will come a day when I can no longer ride at all & it would NOT be a selling point in today's "safety delirious" world to tell a buyer he had to go home first & install blinker lights.
