Anyone use these helmet LEDs?

Saw that the manufacturer is sponsoring a Bike Night @ my local Cycle Gear shop. The LightRider looks like it might actually be a big boost for safety - any thoughts?

I'm trying to be as safe as practical while getting my riding groove back after a 25 year hiatus. Loving the ride...not so much the crazy inattentive drivers around me. If I can get everyone in a car to stare at me, I figure that is a plus.

Anyone see any downsides to these lights?

Kind of expensive, for what's really just a LED rope like and a plug-in adapter.

Yes, I'm a Chrome Whore.

I don't know if these lights flash. If they do, that is a serious downside. Drivers who are tired or drunk will tend to steer toward flashing red lights.

Even sober drivers can get target fixation.

Just my 0.02.

Yes, they certainly make the rider more visible.
