Show me your rear end...

I just finished installing the ADV panniers and luggage grid on my '06 1200GS. That's nice.

For my next trick, I'd like to make use of the ample mounting opportunities that exist with the luggage grid and pannier mounting system to enhance what's going on in the rear. In particular, I'd like to add a tool box and some enhanced lighting...LED running lights would be high on my list.

What else should I consider? Perhaps something reflective for the sides?

So, what bit of genius have you applied to the rear end of your GS(A)?

Extra credit for pictures.

Save the LED's for your upcoming Gold wing purchase.




I ain't smart enough for arrows

I picked up some 6 inch reflective tape from Lowe's home improvement and put severals strips on the panniers and on the pillion case. I also put the tape inside the lid so that when the lid is open it adds more reflectivity from behind. Should be red when viewed from the back. Also I put white strips on the front of each pannier case as they stick out into traffic so far.
I'll PM you a link to an eBay item. there is a small device you can put in a line to make your brake light flash I believe four times when you first step on the brake. I'm going to put an LED third brake lamp on the top of my pillion case as it is on the bike hundred percent of the time.

This is from the front. Should be white when viewed from the front.
