Taping over the lights is as much about gluing together the fragile glass/plastic so it doesn't create a debris field in the event of a substantial get-off. Otherwise why bother worrying about headlights when no one has mirrors? Covering/defeating the taillight is about reducing the distraction, and resulting target fixation, for riders behind. Two recommendations - 1) use blue painters tape as it (generally) releases cleanly and won't leave your lenses all gooey. 2) Even with tape, defeat the headlight. It runs full time and may bake the tape, making removal more difficult. Have a fun and safe day out there!
