People, if any of you feel that you dont get enough notice on the road these days, I have a simple solution.
Buy a headlight modulating assembly.
In case some of you dont know what this is, it is a 100% legal way of making your headlights flash hi-low at a set speed.
Its a simple plug-in to your headlamp socket, no more difficult than changing a bulb. Cost was 60 USD.
It comes with a photocell sensor that prevents the high beams from flashing at dusk/night.
I guarantee that you will get way more attention on the road from idiot cagers.
Its amazing what a difference it makes.
I did a test and rode around for a day with it turned off (just used my low beams) and the difference was phenomenal. People really dont see us at all.
Its sad that it takes a flashing headlight to get the notice of some of the retarded drivers out there.
For those of you who think that it looks annoying.......I rode with my buddy and he said he had no problems with it.
Personally, as a sport bike rider (and a car collision surviver) I would rather use this than resort to wearing a orange safety vest.
