    Question Have you made any modifications to your motorcycle to make it more visible?

    I know I'm big on brake lights...

    I have my center brake light, as well as my blinkers as brakes as well. I always run this way... 17 year old girl texting and driving needs to know I'm stopping.

    Many kits sold to pulse the brake lights, I will tend to flash my brakes sometimes...

    When I have my tourpack on, I have it's tail lights set to brake only/no running lights because I think it helps when a set of lights that aren't on come ON when the brakes are applied.

    Have you added reflective tape or extra lights to increase your bike's visibility more?

    I haven't done anything more... I'm actually known for ridding my bike of reflectors...

    You?

    I have turn signals turned to brake lights. I also make sure to turn them on even when I don't need to brake.

    I've added LEDs into the turn-signal lamp housings to use as extra driving lights. Also added an array of LEDs into the brake light housing to add to the brake light brightness.

    I changed out the old (1973) headlamp which was 35w with a new reflector that holds a H4 bulb, and wired the low- and high-beam switch to a pair of relays, instead of running all the lamp power through the switch.

    I have the run/turn/brake module on mine. But on the other hand, I removed the goofy reflectors.

    Removed those cheesy bicycle reflectors that were on the bike as soon as I got it home from the dealer. LED rear brake lights are pretty bright on this bike. Other than that...nada
