I always felt that reflective tape helped to stay above the darkness. Most drivers seem to keep their distance as well but that could have been due to the modulating brake lights.







wifey decided to go custom on the mirrors and cut out the Berlin Bear and spell out stuff on the rest.

I think it's a great idea! You've got a lot but you won't regret it when the little old lady who's been out too late sees you as she turns left into the old age home.

I think you missed a spot.....no wait. You got it.

Seriously though, i love using reflective stuff. But theres a line between "getting noticed" and being distracting which might cause target fixation (too focused on staring at your bike and end up driving right into you while trying to figure out what the heck they're looking at)

Its different for every person and driver, but i got some great ideas from your pics. Thanks!

Ps - i like using this in addition to a modulator cause when the modulator turns off cause of dusk, the reflectors then do their job. Also, check the laws on whether reflective tape is allowed on the front of a vehicle. Many times it's not allowed for fear of blinding/distracting. Only lights are allowed. But check it cause i'm not sure.

I have a roll of black reflective tape on order, will also go nuts on my bike. If it's against the rules, the man can give me a ticket when he stops me - I prefer that to be the conversation rather than him standing over me going "the driver never saw him, take him to the nearest hospital/morgue".

I was actually considering getting blue rectangular reflectors on the hand guards - nothing will draw a driver's attention like thinking it's the police even for just a second, but that might be pushing it a bit..

blue reflective might be illegal in many places.

Now you just need to add a flashing neon sign to your bike and the full look is complete :)

Looks good to me--and if it helps someone see you ( especially in the dark ) I say put more on. BTW-I have it on my bike too--white toward the front-orange on the sides-red on the tail end.
