Tail light

Hello everyone ... I have a 2005 R1200GS and I have been notified by many motorists that my taillight are hardly seen especially when I place the back paneers.
Anyone would recommend extra/ additional tail light that can be added to make it clearly seen?

And what brand is recommended.

Thanks,
AF

I have added additional rear lighting in the form of LED strip lighting which includes tail/brake/turnsignals and 4 led lights that frame the license plate by using the 4 bolt holes mounting which are screw in tag hangers. Replacing bulbs with led modules increases visibility.

Get a Clearwater Billie Brake Light. They are easy to install and are very bright.

I installed the Weiser Technik tail light upgrade and front turn signal upgrade. Extremely bright and low profile.
