Thoughts On Cycling Accessories?

I am currently using a Cygolite TridenX headlight and Planet Bike Superflash tail light. The Cygolite claims 600 lumens and the Superflash is the brightest taillight I could find according to reviews. I want to be seen, and see the junk in the road.

Current pump on the Rohloff hub bike is the Topeak Road morph pump, just bought so have not tried it yet General reviews are excellent. I also carry the Topeak large multitool and a set of plastic tire levers as well as a patch kit.

Anyone else have recommendations or thoughts on what are the best lights and emergency repair accessories? I know that thoughts on headlights vary all over from minimal so that the eyes dark adapt to bright like I am using.

Locally I see some people riding without lights or reflectors at night while dressed in dark clothing. To me an accident waiting to happen.
