HI Andrew, the tail tidy looks good and appears to be well made. Any chance you can photograph installed on a bike, to give a better idea of how it looks in use?

A couple views would be nice, especially a view from beneath to see where it mounts to the bike.

I would be interested in this but would need to see photos of it on the bike first so I can see where it mounts etc.

Good idea Chris,

here are some photos of our second prototype, and the finished kit.
We went with the license plate bolt lights mounted above the plate to start with.
However, giving the choices available for license plate lights we chose to clean up the
part and let the customer decide what kind they want or if they want one.
Do you think this is a good idea?
&
Thank you!

I would be interested in seeing one with lights.

Andrew, it looks like a good piece of gear. I think might be some concern by some of not having the illumination to go with it, as a rider can get ticketed for that, but it's certainly priced competitively.

Thanks for posting the installed pics!

It's a nice piece, but I think you need the license plate light, or at least a reasonably priced optional lighting kit...

I got a ticket for that on my M900. Of course I don't think the light had worked in 5 years or maybe longer, so I wouldn't say enforcement is heavy. Oh, and I got a second citation at the same time for no rear reflectors. YMMV.

In Florida, there is a massive police crack down on those who do not have a lighted plate. I think it looks nice but ....

It's not much prettier in California. Parts of San Francisco even have a sound orindance in place (Fisherman's wharf & North Beach), but luckily they have only targeted HDs.:p We may also eventually have a ban against aftermarket pipes. :mad: Signs of desperate times to make a buck and just pick on motorbike riders.

The R&G unit has a pretty nice LED tail light. I don't know how durable it'll be, but it is bright.

On the prototype,
we punched holes and add them above the license plate,
take a close look at the installed version.

Its very clean.

Also our is a very nice flush mount,
cut to the contour of the seat under tray.

We could provide those..
What do you think?

Thank you!
