Just searched for and read through this whole thread. I'm looking into a headlight modulator after my wreck. I practice situational awareness, extremely defensive riding, and have been riding for about 11 years. I still found myself in a situation where my "outs" were taken away and I could not avoid taking the hit. All of those habits did keep my injuries to "just" a dislocated shoulder. However, in the specific circumstances of my wreck, a modulator might have made a difference. It might not have, but I've seen a guy running one once, and it was eye-catching as all get out.

So my question to y'all is: What brand/type do you recommend from personal experience?

I have an '07 Aero 750. I've never really looked into modulators before, but I have time to shop while I wait for my bike to get fixed and my shoulder to heal.

I'm for anything that helps people see a motorcycle. I've lights front and rear to both my Valks. Mounting them down low on the front creates a very effective triangle but nothing is 100%, still have to look out for everyone.

A modulator won't help when a distracted driver approaches you from behind while you are stopped at an intersection, won't help in many situations involving your lane position, the position of cars around you, and traffic turning across or into your lane of travel. I agree that they can be seen more readily in a one on one situation with opposing traffic that wants to turn left, but you are still a speck in the mix with traffic all around.
Yes we are still a speck but anything and everything I can do to become more visible is worth at least looking into. i agree we all are responsible for honing our riding skills however even the safest most skilled rider can still be unseen at the wrong time. If the modulator helps you to be seen even if it is only from the front then that is a great help.

Live for today because tomorrow is not promised.

Thanks guys. I was looking at the Signal Dynamics one. Looks like it has all the features I want. Much appreciated. Might have to get the brake light unit as well. First I have to figure out how to pay all of the medical bills I'm stuck with at the moment, but once I'm able to get something I'll let you know how it works out.
