That looks pretty intriguing... I know that last year I installed one of those brake light modulators and switched my tail light to an LED, and I believe it has made a difference in making me more visible to cage drivers behind me. The tail light flashes four times before staying on with the fifth flash.

...and so far, no cops have said anything - because according to the website where I purchased it, the system still isn't DOT approved.

People should not be afraid of their governments. Governments should be afraid of their people.

Those have been around in other forms before. They just never really caught on or the quality wasn't there yet. This is a nice looking unit but I have to admit I would rather buy $100 worth of gas.

It would be interesting to see one in person.

It's interesting, but not in my future. If I bought one, my helmet would most likely fall off my handlebars within mere minutes of installation and break it.
