Anyone used this? I have a cheap tail light that I'm using on my hardtail sporty build and I think that the vibrations of the bike are blowing the filament. I'm on my 4th bulb in a week. I don't think it is a wiring issue because when idling in the shed before take off it lights up fine. After coming back from a shakedown run one or both filaments will be out. This is an internally grounded light, so I'm going to try and ground it to the bike instead of internally to the mount, and may try the aluminum foil around the bulb trick, but this LED version seems like a good option as well.

I've been using the Vision X 360 LED bulbs for years in the bikes and my trucks. Hold up to abuse real good, My 4x4s take a beating, and the little chop has no battery, and an iffy charging system and its still going strong

I think that is the one I was looking at, thanks. Good to know they can take a beating.
