I added reflector tape to the front shocks and to the sides of my Bike. I believe it it lights up like extra lights, but lot cheaper and easier. The pics are horrible, sorry but it helps make the point of what it added, some were at about 50 yards and others about 75 yards I am not real technical. I put blue tape over the reflectors to try to show before and after. They are just cheap reflector tape, tell me what ya'll think.

Kind of hard to see what Im looking at but being extra conspicuous certainly never hurts. Some of that stuff has a really high reflective rating

Is your avatar upside down?

It's a view at night from the front, I had the pickup lights on bright, to see how much the reflectors add. Sorry about the pics, they are bad pics. I know my avatar is upside down, but I don't know how to fix it, I would rotate it, and upload it, again and again, it would still be upside down, I finally gave up.

I don't see much difference in these pictures, but there's no question they are very reflective and you will be more noticeable!

I use reflective tape on the crossbar under my license plate from my luggage rack. Helps the back end stand out from behind.

do you use red on the back, I know on trailer lights everyone uses amber on the front and red on the back. I don't know if its a regulation or just what people do.

I had the same idea. I added red reflective tape around the LP and back edge of the swing arm. I'll be adding a red strip on the forward wall under the rear fender as well.
