I knew I would be the only one to think of that!
I see a man with those riding around Waltham in the evening, usually in the area of the old Watch Factory, or around the Woerd Avenue / Rumford Ave area. He's the only one I've noticed. Well, MA law does state that you may have as many lights and reflectors on your bike as you wish.
-Two strips of red Scotchlite tape on my rear fender. This is the same stuff you see on tractor trailers. I like it better than reflectors.
-Blackburn Mars 4 tail light. Very bright, and has Amber LEDS for side visibility. Takes two AAAs. Seems very good on Battery life.
-White Helmet, White, or mostly white, jersey. Jacket, when needed, has reflective piping.
-reflective leg bands. I like the ones from Jogalite.
Oddly enough, MA law requires that you have either reflective leg bands, or pedal reflectors. Leg bands are better, IMHO.
-Busch and Mueller Ixon IQ headlight. I'd rank it as one of my top ten purchases.
Pricey, but it is regulated. The light does not dim as the batteries discharge. I only use the high setting when there is no street lighting, or weak lighting. Uhhh, I never realized there were so many Raccoons in the Cemetery near my apartment complex. Oh well, they have to get out too I guess.
