Need your Opinions on Tour Pack enhancement........

Greeting from up north.
2015 Black RG Standard - purchased new tour pack addition.
Of course HD doesn't sell you the tour pack with the taillight installed. According to my dealer I can purchase the $300 taillight and another $600 or so for the install/wiring....... if I had them do it. I'm thinking that's not going to happen.
Of course the new tour pack has to be cut, etc to accept the HD taillight, so I hesitate to do it myself, even though I do a lot of my own wrenching. Not sure the wiring (connecting) plugs are even there on the standard model.
Sooooooo, I'm in search of a high-end led (running) light that could be used and installed in good taste without ruining the looks of the unit. Haven't found one yet that seems to fit that area decently, of good design. Any ideas out there are welcome !!
Maybe it's not a light ....maybe some other form of trim or decoration. I simply know the back end of a black tour pack, without the taillight or trim looks very plain........ Thanks !

Look at the Custom Dynamics light for the tour pack, it's a light bar with 110 led lights, run, turn, brake

You could always go with the LED spoiler kit if they make one for the new pak. I had one years ago & I thought it was badass. Run & brake light is incorporated into it so it reall helped out with visibility from the rear.

I have the color matched spoiler light, and I like the fact it puts some light higher up in the rear. But yeah still have a big red box back there. I have been thinking about maybe some sort of reflective decal back there if I could find something not too tacky and to my liking.

Look on ebay get the aftermarket led light around $100, do a search on here for the install and it had the list for the wiring from HD for about $100 and you can do the install yourself in about 2 hours and it makes it a run, turn, brake light looks just like the light on the new tour pack. PM me if you can't find it.

I kinda like the look of a plain tour pak. When I had mine repainted we removed the antenna mounts and filled the holes. The only thing showing on the back is the light bars on the bottom sides.

I think if I was going to add more lights to the rear I'd put a run/brake light bar on the rear face of the detachable mounting bracket so it'd be under the tour pak.
