Headlight Modulator

I'm a believer in them also, have them on both bikes.  Only downside I've seen is that sometimes people think you are immitating a cop or something when you come up behind them.  I've had people give me the single finger salute after I passed them, but not often.  Another thing that may be marginally effective is a brake light modulator.  I was only rear-ended once but I put these on both bikes too and figure extra visibility from either end is a good thing.

  Until now, I have questioned the value of a headlight modulator. I bought 
  one and installed it a couple of weeks ago. I won't ride without one ever 
  again. It really catches a cagers eye and makes them pause to figure out 
  what that blinking light is long enough for them to recognize it's a 
  motorcycle. When I pass by those waiting to make left turns in front of me, 
  I see them looking right at my blinking headlight. I've had others creeping 
  out onto the roadway that stopped dead as soon as they saw my blinking 
  headlight. Some don't like it in their rearview mirror so they either slow 
  to let me by or speed up. In either case, they're not near me anymore. I 
  have been extremely impressed with it's ability to make others see me. I 
  highly recommend them. I've also added a 16 LED running/brake light to the 
  rear of the bike to help visibility at the back end as well.
