VERY nice job, but are you certain you want to tow someone behind you to put 'em on...?

Wow- Nice job indeed!! I've been considering adding some extra brake lights to my pelican topcase. Good inspiration for me...

You going to issue sunglasses to the poor fool behind you?

Looks great. I plan to upgrade my V35s by spring, bikes parked for "Salt Season"

Or was that look THEN leap?

I laugh about but a friends son got rear-ended a couple years ago in Jacksonville. It didn't kill him but did really mess him up for months. Both my Versys and KLR leave me feeling "Hung out to dry" with the dinky little rear light so I have been thinking of some way to do this upgrade and you guys show me the "Light". I upgraded the KLR to a LED and add a marker light under the tag, where the reflector was. The Versys has a LED but both need more.

I am also going to try and add side marker light front and rear.

Or was that look THEN leap?

Great job!

My neighbor just got killed hit from behind on his bike!

So I went hi-vis but these lights would help too!

Thanks guys,

Here is the image how they are looking in "passive mode" when there is no running/brake lights just with reflective decals.



E-bay for v35īs decals (there are black ones - glow white when illuminate with light, and red ones - glow red)

At a minimum, anyone with hard bags should place the brightest reflective tape they can find under the lens. There's no good excuse that they are not truly reflective from the factory...Givi/Kappa should be ashamed.

I have the Admore kit for my top case, and I'll get the upgrade for my V35's. Passive lighting is good, but active is better.

Pumpaljka: very nice!
