Lol @ joesam. That's what we call some redneck thinking right there, cmon. I can honestly say I've never seen that.

Just get the reducer that Scotty sells. And get a fuse block with a ground strip. Once you install it anything else you ever install will be a breeze.

. . . I can honestly say that I would never have thought of connecting the lights in that fashion . . . sort of exemplifies "Necessity is the Mother of invention" . . .

I know, I know - laugh if you will. But at the end of the day, those silly ol' lights get me home when the sun sets on the beer aftermath of mens night golf (happens more frequently than you might think)! I've even used the headlights to lliuminate the last few putts when we go back out for an emergency (beer induced) nine.

Oh....and yes, I live in the "crimson neck" West in Canada.

Well the blinkers would work (just like Xmas - they would ALL blink). But I'm thinking four horns would be a neighborhood disaster, and far exceeds the price of a reducer!
