I've always maintained that Triumph invented the 3rd Brake Light...
they just didn't have the 1st and 2nd brake lights.

Another way to get a similar advantage is to use dual filament bulbs
in the turn signal fixtures with the second filament being used as
additional brake lights.  This is what I have done.

Of ocurse when driving in Phoenix (or even a cow town like Tucson) I
have this on the back of either TR:


Harbor Freight has sets of magnetic towing lights for about 10 bucks.
Ugly but perhaps effective.
