I was riding in the dark often due to my work for a few years. Adding the 3M Diamond reflective tape seemed to help. From the rear the stuff is really bright. I put it on my pelican bags. Red on the rear, yellow on the sides. I put the black reflective tape on my FJR, looks black during the day and reflects white at night. I didn't mind my DS bikes looking like a school bus at night, but I didn't want the FJR so ugly...

Most bikes benefit from good quality low powered auxiliary driving lights to stand out. And one or two strong led spot beams to come on with the high beams.
