That's what I call a perfect opportunity to upgrade the tail light and possibly the handlebars.

Everybody must be out riding, can't keep this off of the 2nd page

OK, how about this, I was a little concerned that my cheapy tail light would not be seen under the rack specially if I had something on the rack. I'm sure most cars would see it as tall as the XR is, but we have a lot of pickup trucks around here. A cheap LED stop/tail light from the local farm supply store and some pipe clamps and I have a tail light than can be seen better

this is shortly after the loopout posted so generously a few posts back. pigs don't like flat landings. and zip ties work really well to hold the rear end of the bike together.

I was sick of the stock XRL long limp TV tail light's looks so I took a dremel and a razor knife to a spare one I have. I just stuck it on my 250R for pics.

Here are the results, Its even erect.
