    I'd say, on safety, I carry my ID, AAA card, Health insurance card, and a cell phone.
    AAA will transport bike and rider a fair distance in case of mechanical failure
    ID and health insurance are so they can start treating me instantly.. Cell phone is to call in case I need support.
    Now, for day rides, I have a headlight, and a tail light, both in strobe mode. In the 3 years I've been running them, I've never had anyone pull out in front of me because they didn't see me. I've been wearing screaming yellow/orange for longer than that, and it doesn't work.
    The reason blinking works is that it cause people to pick up motion, and the eyes are wired to pick it up
