Todays cars have sound canceling sound systems, my Equinox has it, better sound insulation, better speakers, plus most drivers are zoned out on a cell phone or something as well, you can fly a jet over them before they know whats happening, loud bikers just get tuned out, dismissed.
I advocate visual clues like red and blue reflective tape, led lights on the sides and angles because being a bike in a lane we are not aligned always the same as a car, since most cars are using hid, led headlights just the smallest amount of reflective tape will glow, even in broad daylight, much like school busses and emergency equipment, i actually have black and blue tape on my bikes, the black matches the frame on my Vmax, it does actually glow under light.
