    Opinions recommendations on which is a better bang for the buck/idea - Varia radar to add to my awareness that vehicles are approaching or a recording device in the unfortunate incident that I get taken out by a vehicle from behind. Note: I'm not saying that in either case that I won't use a mirror, visually checking & keeping my ears tuned. This is just to add another level of awareness/safety.

    I've heard of devices like that but I've satisfied myself with a large mirror from Bike Eye. Tried the helmet mounted ones and even the expensive ones tend to vibrate more than my old eyes can deal with.

    I'm not overly paranoid out there on the road but I keep my head on a swivel. My wife has told me more than once... "Don't you dare come home dead or I will kill you!" Yikes! Twice dead!

    Hope somebody answers your questions with a recommendation or two. People in cars see us out there on a bike but I think what their brain tells them is... "I didn't see a car."
