I got that. Do Not Modulate Anything, Period. End Of Story.
Seriously, it's a waste of time and money: it beats the heck out of anything with a filament (the repeated change in temperature flexes the filament excessively), and creates confusion (is he dipping the lights to tell me something or what?).
Not only that, but if you watch most bikes coming down the road towards you, there's enough unevenness in the road to create some flickering or change in intensity without adding more pieces waiting to fail some day. And, when you stop, there's no blink-blink-blink which may mean nothing or may mean I want to tell you that... you go first or your muffler's falling off or you're being chased by zombies.
Honest. Modulators are a sign of mental deficiency on the part of the rider.

I assume the concern is being seen. That's why there's lots of "hurt my eyes" hi-viz gear. It covers 360į, it works 24/7, and doesn't need batteries or fragile electronics. Past that, all you can do is assume every driver around you is blind, on crack, and hates you; ride accordingly,
ADDED: And, yes, my avatar was shot before hi-viz gear was even on the market.
