I use a headlight modulator on my BMW K1200LT. It flashes the headlight during daylight hours. Couple that with my riding style, which is: Always assume the driver can't see you. We had a driving method taught by my basic motorcycle instructor: Think what if. What if the car next to me comes over in my lane, what if the car waiting at the stop sign pulls out, what if every scenario. Make it become second nature to plan an escape route. I find myself using those techniques while in the car as well. I may have strayed off the original thread, but felt compelled to add my .02.
