Best safety accessory there is for bikers. I have used the Kisantech TailBlazer on my previous road bikes and again on my new SCR. I also have the PathBlazer or headlight modulator, but I only use that under specific circumstances. My experiences with headlight modulators leave me with mixed feelings. I've had people make left turns across my path at intersections because they thought I was flashing them to "go ahead". I've had people pull off the road thinking I was an emergency vehicle, and then give me an angry look as I ride by. There is no doubt that headlight modulators draw attention, and with today's distracted drivers we do need all the advantages we can get. But I limit my use of the modulator to times when I am the only vehicle traveling in my lane. Makes you noticeable when it may otherwise appear as though the path is clear for some mom in her minivan full of kids to pull out of her driveway into my path while she is talking on the phone. I still remember the look on her face.....

I'm torn on headlight modulators as well. I've seen some bikes around here with them but not too many.
