Blinkers - any truly durable ones?

Have any of you found better versions? Anybody tried the little flexy ones from Summers Racing? I'm not worried about DOT approved - the blinkers would only be one of the violations

The downside is they stick out further than what I would like- about 6 inches.
Just my $.02

These have been on my WR now for 2 years, I don't know if SRC still carries them.

but I did not mount the rear blinkers directly to the fender. Instead, I bought FLIP-LITES from First Trails. They are folding(retractable) brackets made of light-weight aluminium. You can contact Tom Evans at First Trails P.O. BOX 3884
Big Bear Lake, CA. 92315
I bought a set three years ago for my XR600 for about $25.00. I sold the XR in nov.'00 and bought an '01-WR426. After three years and many get-offs, the flip-lite brackets have held up nicely. They tuck in, out of the way when you're off road. Then flip out, into street legal position while you're on the street.
p.s. Tom also rides a WR426. Call him, you'll be glad you did.
