Xfire Bike Lane Safety Light
Here's an idea, or rather a product, that was made for bicycles but could be of us to us motorcycle riders. Bicycles are more at risk than motorcycles in the dark by being sideswiped by a car, since they have less lights (sometimes none), and are often invisible on the road.

Motorcycles are bigger, and more visible, but often enough cars edge up real close to us since they haven't really estimated the distance between us and their cage. At night, this becomes a bigger problem, and there's not much you can do about it apart from kicking the car (which is a bad idea since you'll loose your balance).

Xfire Open Xfire link in a new window makes an interesting solution for bicycles that could be used for motorcycles. After all, we've both got two wheels, so with some adjustment, this could work. The Xfire Bike Lane Safety Light is a small light, battery powered, that shines two powerful laser lights onto the road. The lights form a red line on both sides of the bicycle. So you end up getting a bright red lane alongside your bike, with enough brightness at night to "mark your territory". Interesting concept.

It costs US$39.99. Have a look at the video below to see how it works. What do you think? Would this work on a motorcycle?
