For years I thought I was "safer", lulled into a sense of false security by using a pair of the air whistles on the bike...that is until I T-boned a deer that jumped in front of me. It was hell on the Ducati (and me) but much worse for the deer. Now, I limit riding at dawn and dusk when the animals are on the move seeking water. Nothing takes the place of "see and avoid".
