    Geno, Nice job.
    Alex, I wonder how it would work if the protective file was put down first and the reflective decals put over the protective file. This might make remove the decals at some point a lot easier.

    From what others have said, this stuff is very durable and long lasting, see Paul's post. I would hate to have to remove it though.

    Fred, are you talking from experience? LOL

    It sure would. Great idea, but then the film wouldn't be protecting the reflective film since that was your concern.

    I saw some reflective tape where I bought the 3M High Grade Prismatic film that looks just like the reflective strips used on Aerostich suits (but the stuff isn't cloth). That 3M product wasn't very durable and could be torn.

    I do remember having to remove the sticky residue from the bags on a used BMW that I bought. It took a while because it was mostly dried up.

    At my local BMW dealership, they had reflective decals which were specifically designed for the rear of the RT cases (as well as for other models).

    Having placed them on my motorcycle, I had often wondered just how they appeared to those behind me. I mounted my camera on the front of my son-in-law's car and had him follow me around the neighborhood for 3-4 miles.

    This is how it looks to those behind me..... (sorry about the poor quality, the camera has trouble focusing at distance in the dark).
