Overall, motorcycles are pretty small on the road, and easy to miss. That's why there are so many accidents with cars running into motorcycles because the cagers didn't see us. At night that danger is accentuated many fold. The same applies to bicycles. It's the the bicycle world that a product has been made that will make cyclists been seen in the dark, and if it applies to bicycles, it'll work very well on motorcycles.

Torch makes the Flux Open Flux link in a new window backpack, a waterproof backpack, big enough to carry a lot of your gear, made out of Denier Cordura Nylon, AND incorporating integrated LED lights. The LED lights can be set to steady or flashing.

The rechargeable battery however doesn't last too long, between 2 and 5 hours, but riding for that amount of time in the dark isn't easy, so maybe it's not going to be a problem. The battery is recharged via USB, so your portable computer will do the trick. The inside lining is made out of Tarpaulin vinyl coated polyester, so even if you're caught in the tropical downpour your portable computer and sandwich will remain dry. And at least, they'll be seen by cars on the road.

Cost: US$120 (was $180)
