General rule of thumb across the USA is NO blue lights on a civilian bike unless it is parked or a "show bike". Rear facing indicator lighting must be red or amber. Front facing indicator lighting must be amber. Headlights, driving lights and brakelights must be DOT approved regardless if Halogen, HID, LED.
What I have found asking LEOs here in SoCal is that offically you shouldn't have any lights besides signal, indicator, headlight, brake light working while driving down the street. So get a switch so you can power off the green purple pink and blue lighting when you are riding and leave the bar. An arguement can be made that under tank and fender lighting at night (if amber or red) is a safety feature, which allows drivers a better view of bikes side profile at night.
If you run a full lizard 120 LED setup with color shifting lighting in any place but the parking lot, you could find an unfriendly LEO having a bad day that could do anything from scold you to writing a fixit ticket.
Personally I love the look of a cruiser bike running through the desert with full LED lighting. Looks extremely cool.
