Reason I won't install a headlight modulator:
I flash cars with my lights to let them know they can pull out, make a left turn, go ahead of me, etc. I have seen many bikers with modulators get pulled out in front of because of the recognized "courtesy flash". People don't pay any more attention than about 3 seconds, they don't realize your lights are always flashing, not just for them.
On that same note, I have seen more than 1 very apologetic cager almost in tears thinking they almost took out a bike because they thought they were being told to go.
Many States and I imagine, some other countries, have 'flash to pass' laws, what does a modulator tell the driver you are riding behind?
I am all about visibility, but ride like I am invisible.
Purely my opinion... I could be wrong.
