Don't think its legal to ride with them on. It is different in different states. In Vt, you can't.

Motermike, you can find this information specifically to your state in your state's list of statutes which should be posted online somewhere. The biggest problem with using LEDs on a vehicle is when you are crossing a public way. Keep in mind these laws vary greatly from state to state. Another factor is what color your lights are. In the end, I have found that it really all depends on how much of a dick the law enforcement officer is on these type of issues, mostly because these laws are relatively insignificant ones, after all they are just lights. So the odds are that you are taking a chance but its nothing too big. In Maine, it is 100% legal to have underglow/LEDs on a vehicle as long as it isn't on a public way 'and not in motion'. It's laws like this that give all the power to the officer because they are rely heavily on the officer's judgment.

If you posted some pics of the tears it would be helpful. If it is anything slightly significant I wouldn't get too far away from home with it lol.
