ok...


but it is the motorcyclists' responsibility to watch for their own safety.

Period.

CaligoneTx: You are missing the point already. You didn't pay attention Sir. Yes EVERYONE, motorcycle or not, is Responsible. How many accidents car/car or car/bike do you hear where one hit never saw a thing. It's called Blind Sided. Get the right perspective here. No one can see Everything all the time, we just do the best, but there is Always the element of unknown.

and Lanzer913: What is the price of a human life? Once developed for production, and All that will be Sold, the price Will be made affordabel even to the sinical pessimist (miss spell probably).

So you are expecting every bike to put a beeken on it(which will help with cops and tickets) and every manufactorer, nah every driver to choose to buy a kit to install in their vehicle that tells them if a bike is in the vicinity... that would keep their eyes off the road ahead of them as they look around for this bike they cannot see even if its a couple lanes over.

I have around 50k miles on bikes street riding. I have been rear ended, yes. Of all the times cars have come over etc; only two times things happened infront of me. Otherwise, I see things before it happens even riding in groups that others overlook because they dont keep awareness, leave good spacing etc.


Common logic... learn to be visible. Great idea but never going to happen.

Just cuz you can put a helmet on and straddle a bike doesn't mean you know what you're doing. Aside from that, accidents will happen. If that scares you, dont ride.

This is how those feel good laws gets passed. I am 100% against these devices. Come on peeps, think things through before you get behind an issue.

Obviously it will only work if it is Turned On. So anyone who doesn't want to be "seen" because they ride with Warrants/unlicenced/etc, or "scared of not knowing where the biker is" can Turn It Off.

Like the Blog said, "No debate issue" and only the selfish squids riders and car drivers that don't have awareness as to when it is beneficial will even Try to debate this.

I read it. It's a dumb idea. Human lives do have prices, both in money and convenience. This exceeds both. The fact you "patented" your idea just goes to show you're more considered with making a buck yourself rather than getting this AWESOME LIFE SAVING IDEA out there and in use as quickly as possible.

And just because you say it's a "no debate issue" doesn't mean it's true.

I've never, in all my time on MH gone off on anyone, but you must have caught me on a bad day.

My experience is with bikes and being a Mastertech for BMW for the last 8 yrs.

You asked for comments, I give my opinion w backed up information/examples/ideas and you are flogging it...

Way to teach us the ways of a douche.

Hate to tell you but you can't patent that. This is not a new idea. But ultimately it will be a collective enthusiasm in the product that will implement it. I do wish something like this could be implemented but Unless you get with the Auto manufacturers and create a marketing strategy that could include transmitters for road bikes , mountain bikes tricycles skate boards etc and then the darn thing would be going off all the time!!! Ultimately it is up to the drivers. The right technology will come along but until then Saw off your mufflers so they can hear you!!!!!

I do support the agenda good luck

We all know that bright yellow glow in the dark slicker suits will make a motorcyclist much more visible. Let's mandate this.

As soon as someone mentions Fear of police finding them, you Red Flag yourself for a mentality that strongly states that you are not very responsible. Therefore require a curtain frankness to get through that way of thinking.

The first sign of a hater of any type is someone that First picks something apart someone else started, rather than acknowledge or get to know the person for why they thought of it. Then see if there is something good to it, or even good intention and then help them mold it.

Out of the abundance of the heart, the mouth speaks.
