The postman delivered my order form China: two LED 'bulbs' to lighten up my S-Wing.



One of these lamps will hardly ever be noticed: the underseat courtesy light. It is a lot brighter than the original filament one.



The other one will be seen: it is a LED-replacement for the H7 bulb. Not only does it offer a bright blue-ish beam, but when the high beam switch is activated twice, it starts to flash like a stroboscope.



I also stuck some 3M 'Diamond Grade' reflective stickers on the front cowling. In ambient light it's a warm yellow, but when it catches a beam of light, it brightens up like the Brighton pier...



I'm still pondering wether I should add more of this stuff on the Silver Wing. It does make the bike stand out in dim light conditions, but I don't want to look like a complete twit... pig

Check your country's lighting laws. Here in England flashing lights on a moving vehicle are illegal as they are reserved for emergency vehicles, being in the EC you may have similar law.
Keep to reflective or better still in daylight fluorescent stickers then I would have white = forward facing, red = rearward facing, and yellow /orange on the sides.
You can get black reflective stickers that actually reflect white if you want to be less obtrusive.
Silver is a good colour for the wing.
Cheers,

I stuck some 3M black reflective material on the side bits on my Airflow. Smile
