I weave or even stand up on the bike to make myself more visible even with my hi-vis jacket. Never can be to visible on a bike. There are times that I will flash my high beam but I often worry that the other driver thinks I am telling him to go so I don't use that technique to often.

Well it seems a lot of people in their cages forgot over the winter that they need to watch for motorcycles. I have had a few issues with not being seen lately since starting to ride again on a regular basis now that winter is over. An the cell phones are twice more abundant than last year also. Be careful and vigilant folks.
