I want more brake lights !!!!

I am thinking about adding light strips from the auto parts store.These have a peel and stick backing to them.I was thinking that i should come off of the brake light switch. Anybody got any feedback ?

Look at plasma rods. http://www.customdynamics.com/plasma_rod_led_lights.htm, they will fit between the fender and bags. They have all the controllers needed for that type of light as well. There's a bunch of retailers that sell them.

I love my Plasma Rods. Very bright, but almost invisible when not illuminated.

Since you have an Ultra, do what I would have done if I had an Ultra...

Bright Ass Tail Light is all you will ever need (even the smaller one) Keeps the stock look and nothing in all of creation is brighter!

I never did like the Bullet lights. That is why I changed the turn signals to the Road Glide bar.
It moves the signals out and expands the light area.
I also added the CD lights with Badlands Run/Turn/Brake module.
I also added the Street Glide Fender Fascia with the light on the bottom and the Ultra TP Light Bar.
Makes for a lot of light. Both with the Tour Pak or without.

I added the CD Dynamic Rings in the front as well as LEDs in the rear, along with plasma rod run/brake/turn in the rear. Can never have too much light on the bike.

Agree with everyone as I'm running CD led lights light Plasma rods on the back. I've also added the magic strobe to ensure those behind me pay attention ... well, I just hope so.

I've been looking at these kuryakyn saddlebag accent lights. The gloss black would blend in nicely on my vivid black bags. They come in chrome with red lenses too

These guys have them for a pretty decent price
