    Hi

    So just a post to share what i just did to the rear of the stock fender of the bonnie t100. I did not like the reflector and the plate support with the name of the stand so I just removed both. I am very pleased with the result. What do you guys think.

    Looks really good, uncluttered and clean lines, a nice job!
    Might you not have to have a reflector to remain right side of the law?

    You can probably find a stick on strip one which will fit in the space between the tail light and the number plate, you'll save a ticket plus it will be almost unnoticeable :)

    Hi Mate,

    Regarding the missing reflector....

    I see the plate has a black border. You could cover the border in black reflective tape.
    It'll be invisible during the day but shine like a lighthouse at night under headlights. Not absolutely ideal as the reflected light isn't red but it really stands out.

    I used it on my wifes previous trike

    Daylight....

    Flashlight....

    Or buy red reflective tape & stagger it around the black numberplate border in 10mm long pieces?

    Cool!
    Glad you like the idea lads.

    BTW.... The tape on the drive shaft wasn't accidently applied off centre. I wrapped it around deliberately off set. At night it looked like a rotating barbers pole.

    Hi HD,

    A lot of UK MOT test stations keep a stock of those with an adhesive backing.
    If you turn up without a reflector on your bike? They'll offer you one of those tiny reflectors for £1. Or an MOT fail? :eek:

    I've purchased a few of them over the years :kissing:

    I think some of the states here on the other side of the pond require side reflectors too. I took the original ones off like you did while installing a tail tidy and have yet to find a good side reflector solution. When I have my panniers on they have reflective material - I think it's required on them here as well.

    I don't really feel that varying regulations are a true reflection of owners views.............................
