I got rear ended by a little old lady while sitting at a stop sign which resulted in a broken arm. Since then, I have installed flashing stop lights and stop/tail lights on my Pelican cases. I also wear a neon yellow jacket on the street.
It appears that you're still using the stock mirrors though. Have you considered swapping them out to something that offers better rearward vision, like the looooooonng KTM FAR mirrors?

Or Procycle mirror extenders. They work well on the road too.

Or, the Doubletake Mirros look promising.

If I am not mistaken the doubletakes help support Neduro in the Dakar so by all means check em out!

Pelican case wiring

C2, these pictures show the plug and wire routing. I secured the wiring to the inside of the cases with silver duct tape. It works very well although I'm sure black duct tape would have beem more fashionable but then you wouldn't be able to see it as well in pictures.

Pelican case exterior & wiring plug

Case exterior. It's just a plain old flat 4 trailer plug. The fancy, expensive ones didn't work as well.

Aleeoop's DR650

Oh, and I do have 2" mirror stalk extenders on the stock mirrors so I can see past my shoulders but there may be better mirrors out there that are lighter too. Plenty of light with the 55W 7" Hella Euro headlight bulb & reflector. The running lights are LEDs. Not for illumination but work great for being seen and being recognized as a motorcycle.

Thanks Aleeoop. That looks awesome.

I bought some ammo cans with hopes of mounting on a happy trails rack, which would still work with your same method.

I'm in line to get one of the 5 prototype Moto-Mule Dual Sport Trailers, which may be a great alternative to the ammo cans (doesn't add weight to the bike like the sidecases with racks would, want it for 2 up touring). Plan to do taillights just like yours either way, trailer or sidecases.

Here's the dual sport trailer thread: http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=113997

Question

C2:
Those two links you posted, labeled male/female, look like there are 3 male pins on each of them; no female sockets. On one, the wires go straight into the plug, on the other, the wires enter the plug at 90*.

Wow, yeah, guess that was an oversight on my part. Can't seem to find anything female.
