I have a smaller version of that zip-tied to the back of my helmet, and I feel much safer than when it was down under the seat. I have had friends say that I am very visible from behind when they see me in their cars.

I have that same light! Unfortunately, my light broke when I dropped it several weeks ago. ;-(

I think that's the best place to put the light because the motorist in an SUV can still locate your position even when they're a few feet. And since the motorist never sees anyone with a light on the helmet, most are in awe or surprised.

I'm content with the fitting and it doesn't bug the back of my head. I'm going to see how well it working at the beginning of the week when I ride with my friend.

I tend to ride leaned forward a bit more, even more if I have my head in the wind. So the back of my helmet's usually into the air, pretty useless unless I'm signaling at airplanes. I had a planet bike blinker that self rights on a mount. Used to have that on my helmet but now I have it zip tied to the back of my bag.

I think that's a great idea. A lot of cars, many station wagons, now have a taillight up high on the back window. This is because if it's higher it's visible from further away in many situations.
