My lovely wife and I run her family's liquor shop, I do deliveries around the area, I have used the Honda Gyro 3 wheeled scooter and the Kei van we have on rainy days, but this past spring I decided that I needed to get back into shape, and one thing I thought that would help, is to get back to cycling. I built a trailer for doing the regular deliveries around the shop.

As winter has and the days are getting shorter, I decided that it was time to put some lights on my trailer, people just simply do NOT see the darn thing :eek:

I've had some near misses where people see the bike and me, but then step out expecting the space behind the bike to be empty.... SURPRISE..... As it is now dark when I do most of my deliveries, I figured I'd try to stay ahead of the game and put some stupid bright flashing lights on the trailer....
