I bought a second hand Givi box that has brake lights fitted.

Morning Dazcoates,  I fitted these on a 90 brackets rivetted to the underside and joined the two lights to one cord, then dremelled a shallow channel to the rear of the box and sealed in the wires, which connect to a waterproof connector on the near side.  I first bought a second hand light unit for about 25  and cut the wires into that, so the original is still intact.

Sorry, images didn't load and I couldn't remember how to do it, but if you look in the photo gallery under my name there's a few pics!

Thanks Philmcglass!  I did manage to do some time ago, but I'm using a kindle fire, which has some silly ideas!

I also have a Givi Trekker and was contemplating Scotchlite film instead - the black stuff that relfects bright white when headlamps shine on it.  Just wondered if anyone saw that as a reasonable alternative to additional lights?
