Added Brake Light

Hopefully this will help get the persons attention that is riding my rear fender one day. Wired to the brakes. Dumb or Cool?

The LED strip came from Auto Zone. The light shines to the side. Hardly see it until the brakes are applied. The power wire is feed thru the backrest tubing.

Do the LEDs shine towards the inside on the leather?
If so, covering that leather piece with a white or chromed or polished reflector would multiply the visibility of the added brake light.

BTW...X5... I like it!
