Fun And Safety During Night Riding

For safety and showing off during a night ride, photolumininescent paint is already a well known process. But it requires charging in the sun or with black light, probably the reason why very few have adopted this type of paint. , a research and development company that specializes in electroluminescent (EL) coating technologies, now offers Luminor, a much more practical break-through paint coating technology lighting up at the flick of a switch. No special tools or hardware is required, just the ability to paint and wire. Watch the video below produced by Progressive Insurance as part of their “” campaign to reward those inventing solutions to improve motorcycle riding safety. See how incredible the paint job and helmet look at night. Add the safety factor of being seen at night. Some companies already offer training on how to paint and wire this innovative new product for the mere sum of $297.00.

    Really cool technology. Makes me wonder what it would take to program different colors, make the paint itself become a brake light for instance…

    Reminding me the neon obsession about 20 years ago. Come and go.

    People who will want this technology will adopt it to show off or for safety?

    I wonder if colors other than blue will be available?

    Iron Horse. Any color.

    Very innovative, cool and it will help to be seen at night. What’s not to like?

    Jerry I’ve been asking that question myself for years about loud pipes. The reality is, if it is safer does it matter if a guy wants to show off?

    I would think full fenders with this treatment might help visibility, but if you notice the video as he rides away his chopped rear fender can’t be well seen from the rear nor his tank, as it is hidden by his body.
    Lights (and lots of them) seem a better choice for visibility… the paint is kinda neat though. Might see some cool stuff out there soon.

    Dave Blevins, like you say, if the rider can’t be seen too well from the back perhaps the paint can one day be applied to the backs of custom leather and denim jackets for night riding via a snap on rear type of back vest, or even painted with large colorful decals, graphics or whatever name you want. This paint may even be applied to custom t-shirts.

    This has been around a while now. Look up “electro-luminescent paint” on YouTube for a bunch of videos on it.

    I’m surprised it hasn’t been more mainstream yet.

    Boomer. Read again the explanation. It’s not at all the same process

    What, like people can’t see the headlight and taillight? If not, they’re not likely to see dayglo paint either.

  15. 15 Dec 8th, 2014 at 5:15 pm

    Could have some practical use for a custom
    Hell, if you’re going to do it do the whole damn bike
    Not just a part you’d cover up anyway …
    I could never see any of the majors (U.S or Metric) coming in on this on a stock model

    Mainstream…U betcha on a select few…2 sum extent lining the pockets of an insurance company…pun intended.

    Now I do like it for several reasons elsewise! Very appealing, very functional and sexy to say the least.

    Put LEDs on the back if u really want seen!

    Can I spray it on the back of my jacket sleeves so my manual turn signals can be seen at night?
