    Cannot see the point of putting extra lights on my RT apart from the fact that they are extortionate prices , you will always get one doughnut who, states "i never seen you " I have already experienced this and it was in broad daylight !!!!


    Because at night the standard lights are shite. So I fitted extra spots primarily for night time riding, as I ride all year around and a lot at night. During the day if a couple of extra spots help then so be it. Bit like the argument for not wearing hi viz as well, because it doesn't guarantee someone not pulling out on you, but if it helps once, then its worth it.

      As per the Highway Code, using dipped headlights, together with wearing a light or brightly coloured helmet and fluorescent clothing may make you more visible.
