finally a picture as I promised!

Here is what I did to my saddlebags. I found out that it makes me seem huge to everyone. Cars stop at least a car length behind me at a stoplight instead of creeping up close. The visibility at night turned out beyond my wildest dreams. You can see me a mile or more down the road on a flat straight road.

Nice.

How 'bout a night pic with lights shining on it?

Be careful not to burn the camera lens.

I think the only thing missing is a couple Bio-hazard stickers.

That works well..........until you let it off the center stand and the side stand lands on your toes...... advice given to me by a trustworthy source.

Okay, weren't really looking for opinions, right?

Here is the night time picture.

I have had people remark quite often about the visibility at nightFunniest one was that it looked like an electric zebra!

Badass, Yellow!

Mine's a little more subtle. The black tape's almost invisible during the day, but lights up nicely at night:

Just bought some cheap reflective tape from Harbor Freight Tools. Don't know how long it will last but if it turns out to be too cheap I will get some of the higher quality stuff.
