Default Rear Side Marker Poll

In discussion with Archon about the rear side marker lights I've become curious as to how many others have this same problem.

For some reason, these seem to be particularly problematic. I've replaced them several times between my two Bonnevilles. Much more frequently than the other bulbs. I've started using the 168LL (long life version) to try and reduce this.

I got my bonneville a little over a month ago, so I have not replaced mine yet. I could tell they were there just by looking. I knew to look for them because they were there in my intrepid also.

well then I'm not up with the Lingo. If someone told me my side marker was out I would check my turn signals. So then, we don't have front side markers?

ugh, this post is confusing me
