In my quest to make my tail lights flash, i came across this, http://www.uoguelph.ca/~antoon/circ/flashing3.html .
The circuit is an adjustable tail light flasher. You can adjust how many times and how fast it flashes the brake lights before going steady on.
On the concours 14, it's will not actually be flashing the tail light, but rather additional led's mounted in the top trunk (likely these, http://www.lck-led.com/product_info.php/cPath/39_56/products_id/102 ), as can be seen here, ( http://home.comcast.net/~zx1100e5/c14/off.jpg

The circuit is relatively cheap ($10 or so in parts from mouser.com), and easy to assemble.
I always wanted to add something like this to the gpz, but never got around to it.
The output transistor is relatively cheap, and is rated at 65W max, so figure a good 40-50watt usable. Should be PLENTY of juice to drive many many many led's :).
