I just had pin striping done to my black '08. I'll try to get good pics and post them.
I had the shop use the high reflective white tape that is used for police car lettering.
I was trying to describe it but I think there needs to be pics. I went for an old school BMW look with more night time visibility. You would not believe the number of people who have come up and had complements to give. That includes a number of HD guys.
Galls.com has reflective striping by the roll in many colors. I put a single reflective stripe on the top edge of the bottom trunk half. The stripe and cycle are both blue so it barely shows in daylight but really stands out at night.
Here is my LT with pinstripes. The pic inside gives an idea of how it looks at night, reflecting(hi vis tape). You also see how the J-Pegs look as I put the black reflective tape on them plus the reflective piping on the tank bag. There is no striping on the rear but I did add red reflective tape on the bag chrome and on the top rack.
I just wanted that old school BMW look.
