As a long-time night rider (road and trail), I've always wondered if it is better to be identifiable as a bike by motorists or not.
I used to think that you wanted drivers to know you where a bike, but now I'm not so sure.
I almost think keeping the drivers confused until to the very last second is the best strategy now. Lights that strapped on your legs used to very popular. The up and down motion of the lights made your very recognizable as a bike.
In this day and age, I think you want drivers to perceive you as a possible threat to them. Once a person knows you are a bike, they will relax and they become a threat to you. I use a dinotte 300R and I'm pretty sure that confuses them real good.
Interested to know what the schools of thought on this are....
