They are not road legal here, its that simple. RW rules states that indicators must be a certain distance apart. Though that number keeps decreasing with each year to come in line with new models (and unmarked cop bikes), they won't reach a 0mm distance.
FYI, if you d/l the requirements off the web they never contain the amendments, you often have to ring a bike shop about that. Like the document saying the rear indicators must be 30cm apart only applies to bikes before 1994, its been revised 3-4 times, so check what lines up with the year of your bike, as most cops when they try and get you for it are using outdated info.
There is nothing to say though the flashing brake light is illegal, I've had it on my monster for years without issue and seen a few new BMWs with it. I just never connected up the harness to integrate the blinkers that came with the motodynamics light.
