Question Backside Lighting - MORE!

Looking to find ideas about adding light to the rear of the LT. I have plenty up-front and on the sides with adding the driving lights and converting the front turn signals to running lights. Also added the LED saddle bag lights.
I just want some more light on the back side.

Thanks!

Re: Backside Lighting - MORE!

PIAA has some red LED lights I put under the trunk. and will also mount two others under the side cases for a winter project. I use it mostly for a fog light or during a hard rain

Re: Backside Lighting - MORE!

You may want to also look at my latest kit (sorry for blowing my own horn...). It's a 3x5 LED taillight/brake light kit that mounts above the license plate (after you move the plate down a little). There are pictures on my Web site.

Re: Backside Lighting - MORE!

For those who have the Harely rack on the top case, for 09' Harley has a new rack with an optional led light that fits into the back of the rack and the wires run down into the case through one of the mounting feet.

Re: Backside Lighting - MORE!

While in Bob's BMW, I saw another set of rear lights that are for any motorcycle. The nice thing about them is you can tell them how you want them to react every time you turn on the bike or you can just let them default, p3 Lights by Skene Designs.

He also has a set of bright LEDs for the front of the scoot too, Photonblaster.

+1. This is a great light and pretty easy installation.
