I have the "stopper brake light" from cycle gear.

It was incredibly cheap, and I bought the extra resistor so it would also be a running light. It was kind of a cinch to wire, although I never really like splicing just because of the later troubleshooting issues that tend to come up.
It is the clear version since thats the only color my local cycle gear had.
just as bright, if not brighter than the OEM light at night, but the clear lense means it isn't viewable from the side suring the day. From behind, it's still very bright. I may be adding a modulator to this at some point soon so I can get some stobe out of it, and not mess with my tail light wiring. I still need to add a three wire trailer disconnect.
It's pretty damn bright, and makes me feel better about a light on the back of my seahorse case instead of the OEM which is kind of under it.
Although I got my license blocked out, I added an LED license light, and I think that actually helps with visibility. It seems like reflective material glows more brilliantly under led light than regular bulbs. I also added a license box for my paperwork, so I had to remove my license bracket in order to get it to illuminate fully. No big deal, just more black silicone.
As a side note, the box is cheap and handy, although its another key.

It is by no means waterproof, but a plastic bag around your registration and insurance makes it easy. I also keep a tire gauge in there.
Also, side note:
