Having ran the modulators on 2 1800s, I do know they work. I have the ability to run with them off or on, and there have been times when running with them off, that cages just seem to ignore you and cross into your lane or cut you off. Not so with the modulator on, though. They see you. Now, if riding in a group, as DaveO430 and others that have ridden with me knows, I usually remember to turn them off to keep from annoying the other riders in front of me. It has never bothered me to see a bike with a modulator, but then again I know the difference between a modulating headlight and a alternating headlight on a emergency vehicle. Now, if I could only get the deer to move to the side of the road when they see me coming.
