Extra REAR light-brake lights?

I've yet to search here, but I figured I'd post to get the latest and greatest from the members, anyway.
If you have supplemented your C650s hind-end, please tell with what/how? I would be particularly enamored with
BOTH: the OEM lamp having a rapid-flash/then steady sequence...supplemented by say...those lighted license plate frames.
(but maybe only ONE is workable-practicable)

My service tech today said he like Clearwater products?
However, they're not permitted to install them right now because
the OEM (or the intermediary vendor?) has not provided a
certificate of insurance for the product. Thus, the dealership won't put themselves in the
chain of vicarious liability. (Grrrrr.....lawyers).

As to other farkles, I have a headlight cover enroute, and the Denali mini-horn blaster.
Plus, those Chinese barkbusters with amber lights that another poster showcased on his
somewhere in the past here.

In any case, whatever I decide on, I will have be having someone doing the work, not MOI', LOL.
(Vehicles shudder in abject terror when I approach them with tools. :ROFLMAO:

Sorry, I haven't made any rear-end mods on mine. The only lighting changes were to install Denali DM-1 auxiliary lights. Make a huge difference in both being seen and seeing. And really easy for DIY. Info here.

I have ordered front and rears of this product. Have not received them yet but will let you know once I have it installed.

I had a brake light flasher on my last scooter. Dirt cheap, and very simple to install once you identify the power and ground leads for the brake light.
I'm skeptical about the value of added lights that are even closer to the ground than the brake light. If you have a tail trunk, IMHO that would be the mount of choice for a supplementary light.
But see also my post about SOLAS tape on the helmet. https://www.bmw-scooters.com/index.php?threads/conspicuity-bang-for-the-buck.2192/

SLant, thanks for posting this. I love the fact they are plain up-front about CANBUS compatibility.
Dr.C, I have already recieved some SOLAS tape, and it rocks, as you've pointed out.

Got the Skene lights installed this past week. The installation is straight forward. Toughest part was fishing the alert wire for the front lights to the rear brake light. So much plastic parts to take off..o_O They are very bright and from scooting around I suspect many drivers perk up thinking I am a motorcycle cop 😆
