Smile Retun to two bulbs in the tail light

Apparently, the earlier V-Stroms had two bulbs in the tail light, making them very conspicuous during the day as well as at night. My 2014 only has one bulb and I am looking at some extra lighting on the back to increase visibility. In fact my buddy followed me the other morning and remarked that my brake light barely registered to him as we approached intersections. So the single bulb is dim in the daylight as well.

Suzuki, please go back to the two bulb tail light on the V-Stroms. We riders need to be seen in the daylight as well as at night. In the immediate I have switched up to an LED bulb, but am looking at an LED Strip to glue on under the license plate.
