Motorcycle Night Riding Tips

Lights, Lights, and More Lights

Deer At Night


Building on last week’s tip of upgrading your headlight is simply adding more lights. We have added an additional LED light bar to the rear that that blinks when you first hit the brake then goes solid. This way anyone behind you will see something flashing and (hopefully) automatically start slowing down.



Another addition of lighting is a front light bar. These will help brighten the road and allow anyone coming from a side street to see you coming. There are also auxillary lights you can put down lower on the bike to help illuminate the road at night so you can see any potential hazards like objects in the road or potholes.



I have provided several links to show you examples of the differant types of lighting. As you can see, all are available on Amazon. Just remember when adding additional lighting to check the rating of your alternator. You want to make sure your alternator is strong enough to handle the extra electrical load.
