Default Want to add an extra brake light bar on my tourpac, help?

Best forum in the world here, guys! So much appreciate all that is being talked about here, thanks in advance!

Anyway, I would like to have more Brakelight visibility, not sure exactly WHAT, and definitely not sure HOW, so I need some help.

I have a large tour pac I made from HD brackets with a VIP pack. I would like to add some type of highly visible brakelight to it. LED would be preferred, but I have a '98 rigid, so I don't think I can do this, correct?

Any ideas?

Thanks,

Stevo

Yes you can. Check out eBay for flexible LED light bars. Obviously you'd need red. I got mine for $3.00 shipped from China and wired it right into my harness. Mine is a 12 light and about 6" long. I have a 99 so it shouldn't be any different from your 98. Works like a charm and is bright as can be. I need to post pictures.

I used ShooGoo to afix it to the underside of my bobbed fender. I know, seems like it wouldn't hold. But ShooGoo is a wonderful adheasive. Dries clear, is rubbery so it absorbs vibration, and when it dried I could grab my LED bar, wiggle it, and it would wiggle the whole bike. I used this approach because I had to keep the mounting as thin as possible to avoid contact with the tire. That and I have no metal working skills what-so-ever so building any kind of bracket for it that matched the contours of the fender was out of the question.
