Being more VISIBLE from the side

I now realize how much disdain there is here for the stick-on reflectors on the sides of the front fender on my Brutale 910R (and other MVs as well). i believe that removing the stickers from the rear will have no ill-effects relating to "visibility." BUT... removing the side stickers on the front fenders will yield decreased lateral visibility at night.

i agree that they are ugly, but we need all the visibility we can get on the street.
so.... what do you (realistically) suggest that can be done to "aesthetically" improve our lateral visibility?

thanks in advance

well, I don't think they are ugly. as far as reflectors go, I think these are the nicest ones out there.

if you feel the reflector will help you be more visible and safe, then leave it, and be happy you don't have an ugly one that comes with screws, washers and brackets...

Interesting... Will you let us know how these work out? They appear effective in the ad, but you know what that is worth....
