Bill, not a lot of harm using Positaps, but other solutions.... Admore harness provides lighting circuits (or switched power), or an aux. fuse panel (that needs that same switched power).. depending on what lighting you get, it MAY come with a relay and switch harness, however, if low draw, no prob. wiring direct.

Agreed, I am running my '17ES super bright LED High beams during daytime, plus the four Aux LED's just in case

I found a marked increase in notice-ability from wearing hi-viz clothing. Bright orange and lime green seem the most effective. It seems especially helpful in towns and cities where people are more tense and/or in a rush. Maybe it's all in my head but folks seem to be waiting instead of pulling out.

Why Skene P3 ?

Damir, I'm thinking of adding some rear facing LEDs - preferably brake and turn signals - to my FJR. I'm wondering why you chose the Skene P3 lights over other options (HyperLites, etc.). Are the Skene LEDs brighter, or easier to install, or a better size for where you placed them, or Ö.?

Just curious. Thank you!

Sete, I just happened to have Skene's installed on each side of my licence plate as intended by manufacturer, but didn't like the look. They are perfect size to fit instead of that little square red reflector.
I am sure most other brands will work just fine.

There are also some "bicycle" high tech (and i don't mean Walmart cheap stuff) USB rechargeable LED modules that are super bright and programmable, and some come with wireless remote, which would work great for people that are taking panniers on and off and don't like to fiddle with wires. Some last for 5-20 hrs, and have built in "smart breaking" feature to come on under breaking, so that's another way to do it.




Also available are some "laser red" modules that you mount at the rear and they project highly visible red lines or patterns on the pavement behind your bike (cca 5-10ft behind). Especially visible during fog, kind of effects they use at rock concerts. Again stay away from the cheap ones. These modules are small and very adjustable so maybe they can be pointed to shine the laser beam towards your pannier reflective decals. (Warning, You'll have to check the regulations, since shining laser lights toward others is punishable by law and dangerous thing)

Many, many ways to decorate your bike and make it more visible. Cheers

here is a cheap laser version:

Why choose the Skene's?

Skene's "flicker" technology and ease of installation:


Have them on the front and rears of ALL of my motorcycles.
