I finally put some of this on my bike. Do a lot of commuting in the dark and the in the rain. Hope it helps.

 

Of course, I did not get a non-reflective pic. Sorry.

Overkill

 

Great idea, but just overkill

@AlbatrossCafe Nice! What color is the tape in daylight?
 

I wouldn't mind a tape that is clear during the day but reflective at night.

The Black is imperceptible on the black wheels... there are several colours

A little lighter the blurple. There were like 8 colors available.

Yes @r1limited I went ham but my FZ is not a looker. It is all function. I washed my bike for the first time in over a 1.5 years in order to put these on lol. You couldn't see any of the blurple on the wheels before. Anything to help me be seen in rainy/dark Seattle commutes.

Nice! I'd planned on putting some on my front fender as well as the back of my mirrors. A little on the front/back of my helmet as well.

I kind of want to put some of these on mine, just not sure if I should go red or white.......or just get the black so they aren't quite as obvious in the daylight. I have a white/red '18.

Helmet is a good call. I have some extra. I didn't even think of that. That would be much harder to do without looking tacky tho...

My helmet is black & wht. so a little black along the bottom edge of my helmet won't stand out so much. Yours would probably be a different story with that blue but just a couple small 1/4" pieces would do the trick without being super fugly. You can always change color and get the white that blends better, being that it's black. Your call.
