Motorcycle helmet reflective tape.

I bought myself a new Arai tourx3 helmet but wanted to make it extra safe for nighttime visibility. I had some ‘high conspicuity’ sticky-back tape, so set about cutting and applying different patterns following the shape of the helmet. in France it is law that you have to have reflective stickers on your helmet. I don’t know why ALL helmets don’t automatically come with some sort of  reflective Hi-vis markings to keep us safe at night? The tape I bought quite cheaply off the internet, I got white and red for the back. I like the checker pattern it gives it a bit of a racey feel. Although great at night it also has a kinda silvery metallic look in the daylight, it was not intentional but is also looks a bit star wars themed(x-wing/tie fighter pilots) which is ok with me. I have seen similar ideas on a few motorbike touring forums and thought I’d share and maybe inspire someone else to do similar.
