1)Are there any brake lights that are better than what come standard with bikes? I know there are aftermarket headlights but are there safer, brighter taillights/brakelights?
2)When checking the VIN on motorcycles, if the bike owner, model style and insurance all say "2007" but a quick VIN check comes back as "2006" is this just because the '07 bike was built in '06, but is still classified as an '07?
3)Is there a helmet that is proven more "visible" on the road than another? Are there lights or something that can be added to a helmet? I read somewhere that cagers, when asked, after mowing down some poor rider, stated time after time they "did not see" him. Same article said studies/surveys advise that cagers stated that the "brighter" and more "visible" the helmet the more likely they are to see a rider, and that the bike itself is not a big factor in seeing the rider.
My apolgies for the dumb - noob questions...
