"Back Off" brake light signal module?

Anybody using the "Back Off" brake light signal module (by Signal Dynamics)?
If so:
- Do you like it?
- Does it work as described?
- Do you recommend also upgrading the brake bulb to LED (using the "Back Off" XP model)?

I know there are some other options out there that do the same thing. But the better ones seem to be about twice the cost (and I'm a frugal/cheap KLR owner).

I use the BRAKE! led tail light from Cyclenutz (http://www.cyclenutz.com/KLR650-LED-...-Kit_p_66.html). Absolutely fantastic product. Has 8 flash patterns to choose from that'll get attention for certain. The LED unit is far superior to the incandescent bulb in both tail and brake brightness. Well worth the cash in my opinion.

Back off brake light

FWIW:
You may already know about Venco Wings, but just in case you don't, he has quite an assortment of different lighting modules in his shop.

Jim has a good background in electrical and electronics.

Venco is just “down-the-road” a piece from you.

I will definitely be purchasing one of these when the funding is available that thing is sweet! I've been looking for an LED tail light and that is even better! Looks stock but performs better! Thats the way I like it to be!
