Refective tape

I bought some on Ebay for my wife's NC700x. It's black and she wanted some pink on it. Just thought I'd post about the tape. It's really reflective and comes in a bunch of colors. I'm using a paper cutter and adding it to the NC. Looks good, sticks great and safer than just a vinyl decal.

I got a ton of reflective tape on mine. Easy, cheap, and by bike LIGHTS up at night. With no drain on the battery.

Throw a couple strips on the crash guard and bottom frame. Never thought about it until someone mentioned it a few years ago, but if you crash at night, that can save your life .

Ride on!

I used that stuff on the rear tubes of my pushbike when I was commuting in dark, rainy England. It's very effective. I got it fairly cheap off eBay. I put a little bit on the back of my KLR for a bit of added safety, never thought about putting some underneath the bike!

I never had either. Can't remember where I read it. But years and years ago, I was in a car accident and then got hit by a caddy doing 80. Car was upside down and sideways - basically invisible at night.

I love the black 3M that lights up white. Have it all OVER my bike.
