About to install the Backoff XP that I purchased last year. I'm trying to decide between mode 1 and mode 2. The modes are defined as follows:

Mode 1:
4 short break light flashes, followed by 1 long flash - repeats the cycle as long as the brake is on.

Mode 2:
5 quick flashes, followed by a steady on - stays steady on as long as the brake is on.

I'm leaning towards mode 2.

I prefer mode 0, a continuous, steady light.

Mode 2. Brake lights should settle to a steady on.

Mode 2.
The flash to get attention that you are starting to brake then constant to indicate braking is happening.

The cycling flashing would be confusing to many if you were using the brake for a longer time slowing down.

^^^ Yep, Mode 2 ... Mode 1 would probably confuse people.

Seems like we all agree, mode 2 is the winner!

Install completed. I also completed the install with the led light kit on my Givi top box. Massive difference in brake visibility.

I'd be surprised if Mode 1 is legal here.
