Some rv s have their tail lights positioned high. Seems like a no brained to me but... Anyways, anyone do it themselves? Pictures?
I see you use a Blue Ox M/C carrier. If I recall, those are quite low in profile, even when the bike is loaded and at full height, correct? I used the Hydralift when I carried our '08 Honda Goldwing GL 1800. It, when fully raised, was about 40-45" off the ground. Yes, the Wing also covered the tail lights on our '04 Itasca Horizon but, it really only did when a following driver was extra close.
When they backed off a bit, those lights became visible. But, just as a secondary display of lighting, I also used two, 17" (one on each rear edge of the floor platform) LED light strip tail lights. Those things were seriously bright, even in the daytime. I also put a small LED light bar, in the center, the same kind they use on boat trailers for additional lighting.
There are flush mount round and rectangular bus type stop/turn/tail lights on sights like:
and others. You could flush mount those and accomplish your goal. They too are ultra bright.
