I think it would work best mounted on a helmet.

I'd like to put one on my car, but shine it toward the back. Then I could let tailgaters know not to follow so close.

If only it didn't weigh 65lbs...

Which wouldn't be so bad on a front rack, but you have to worry about the oncoming traffic - it's one thing to be seen, but if you blind them, there's no telling where they're going to swerve...

I think if I mounted it on my rack pointed backwards, it would be like cycling with a tailwind.

So where do I put the battery?

Now if I could just figure out why my winter bike is 2lbs lighter than my summer bike... And why my bag is usually heavier than either of them...

Forget the battery, drag along a small camp generator on a bob trailer.
For sure the old "I didn't see you" excuse would be null and void with this thing in their eyes. They'll see you in Siberia.
