Rear Lighting...

I'd like to add some lighting on the rear of my bike.

Any suggestions?

I thought I saw something called Add-a Light, darned if I can find it again.

What are you folks using?

I have a trunk on my bike so I put a strip of tailgate lights around the bottom of it. It has the plus of having red and white lights, so in the dark I can hit the white lights and see into my saddle bags. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1 Then around my turn signals I put these https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

I bought the lights that you see under the tail gates of a pickup, cut them down and put on edge of tail rack. They have been there for two years and still work great. The video is not very good, hope you get the idea. They look brighter in person. Think I payed about $30 to $35 for them. Sliced into wire harness under seat. Make sure you solder and shrink tube all connections.

This is how it looks with lights off.

I like that, been looking to add something without looking way outta place. I just picked up an led reflector to replace the stock reflector that sits under the taillight on the custom.

That looks good Les, how did you get it to blink when applying the brakes?

I added the Kuryanyn LED run brake signal lights on the back and I love them. They are super bright

The lights are set up to blink 3 times, then stay on steady when brakes are applied. They came that way.

Where did you get them from? I would change mine out to those in a heartbeat, or just add them in to what I have now :-)
