    Posted early this morning on the way out for a 400+ mile ride in the North Georgia mountains. Got some pictures of the bags on my album on Killboy.com. Will take some tomorrow and post if I can figure out how. LOL!

    Grainger industrial supply carries these RED/WHITE strips (on a single strip). Think there was about 20 strips, 11" RED, 7" white (or the reverse IIRC) for about $30-ish? Call them. They'll know.

    You mean Grainger, right? Their catalog is a good way to waste a day - over 4,000 pages of cool stuff.

    That bike has got to light up like 60 christmas trees when you illuminate it from behind. I'd like to see the same pic, but using a flash.

    And this doesn't even include the Caribou Top case!

    Suddenly got motivated to take a flash pic of my cases:

    white '3M983:1w' and day-glow green-yellow 'srhi1fy' from identi-tape.com.

    While I'm at it, here's my helmet:

    I guess the tape works.

    Here is what I did to my saddlebags. I found out that it makes me seem huge to everyone. Cars stop at least a car length behind me at a stoplight instead of creeping up close.[​IMG] The visibility at night turned out beyond my wildest dreams. You can see me a mile or more down the road on a flat straight road.

    Nice.

    How 'bout a night pic with lights shining on it?

    Be careful not to burn the camera lens. :D

    That works well..........until you let it off the center stand and the side stand lands on your toes...... advice given to me by a trustworthy source.

    I have had people remark quite often about the visibility at night[​IMG]Funniest one was that it looked like an electric zebra!

    Badass, Yellow!

    Mine's a little more subtle. The black tape's almost invisible during the day, but lights up nicely at night:

    Just bought some cheap reflective tape from Harbor Freight Tools. Don't know how long it will last but if it turns out to be too cheap I will get some of the higher quality stuff.
