I put some high-intensity LED driving lights down low on my fork tubes and feel that they dramatically increase my visibility, both from the added brightness and the triangle of lights now visible to on-coming motorists or those I'm following. I've read about the theory and thought it was plausible, then have tested it and now totally agree. This isn't the best photo of what I'm talking about, but it's all I've got right now - the bike is buried in the garage 'cuz it's frigging Winter here .

The added light is also VERY NICE for night riding and the low-mount position doesn't blind on-coming vehicles.
