I was failed for my motorcycle inspection in NJ maybe 7 years ago by some arsehole because I didn't have the reflective tape. I had never heard of it before that and never heard about it again. I haven't inspected any of my bikes since

Default Reflective

I bought a 8 x 10 sheet of black reflective that show up white when light hits it.

I cut into strips that aren't hardly noticeable till the light hits it.
I bought it from a local motorcycle shop but they have gone out of business.

Lets face facts...yes its nice to have reflective tapes/clothing and hopefully someone will notice you....but if they are on the cell phone or texting...you think tape on your helmet is going to stop them? My bike is lite up like a christmas tree at night it seems....that doesn't stop people from pulling out in front of me or moving over in a lane without looking.

I was hassled when I was younger for the reflective tape thing..
Nothing on my helmet now. My RK had no side reflector (tape on the guard) when I bought it used at a dealer.
I think it's going to be a tough year for motorcyclists. Toward the end of last season I heard alot of talk about loud pipes locally. THis maybe the year of "F*CK with the bikers". They're done with the anti-smoking rant, it maybe our turn to be harrassed.
