I stuck some on mine when I went through France, and removed them when I got home.

Rode from Calais to the Algarve and never really saw any policemen..

Les who posted above you had one on all the way thru France! They could see him coming a mile away!! Lolololololololololol.
No.. I had TWO... same colour as my crash helmet, so un-noticeable in daylight..

At the time there were tales of British motorcyclists being stopped by enthusiastic French plod and getting nicked.. for the sake of two quid it wasn't worth taking any risk..

I think it all started when a number of motorcyclists were run over in the dark after coming off , dark clothing and lid etc. I notice a lot of Matt black or grey helmets lately in the UK.

You should try it, I did 1200 miles to Portugal without touching a motorway or dual carriageway except when bypassing towns etc.
