    Is legal to take the reflectors out?
    Is safe to?
    Do they really work?

    I still have my reflectors, don't know why but if it's theoretically going to help me be more visible, why bother taking them off. [​IMG]

    Even if it were illegal (it's not) since when do we obey the law? If you are worried about being legal, go buy a bike that can't go more than the posted speed limit in your town!!!!
    Now, go get them ugly things off your bike.

    Came off after being abused on my first post here. Haven't had any trouble since. Think it does depend on where you are though.

    Legal yes at least in Washington, safe well do you ride much at night? They do increase your visibility at night, during the day they do nothing.

    Im still thinking about it, but I already took the t&^*0 stikers out. I believe that douring the night the most powerfull thing are the llights(brake, parking).:blush:

    easy Jeremy, he didn't mean it [​IMG]

    I think he meant the guy riding the speed limit. Even a harley can go faster than the speed limit but you go turn around and pick the parts that fell off every couple of miles.

    I guess even most sprees will do the speed limits now, maybe not on the interstate.

    Like he said though if you are worrying about breaking the law, you can give your busa to me. Because you break the law everytime you get on it because it is just wrong in so many ways but it feels so good though [​IMG]

    I don't have a problem with mine being on.

    That's my Joe Rocket tank bag, Aerostich suit, Tourmaster Saddlebags, and Oxford Sport Tailbag. Add in the Fog City sticker (that little light at the top of my head [​IMG] ) and the front reflector and I'm visible from the side.

    Of course it won't stop some drunk from running the light [​IMG]
