I know my Silverado HD camera is much better than my Canyon was, and the rear view camera I installed on my travel trailer has IR capabilties - it is pretty good even after dark.With an IR capable camera you wouldn't even need the lights--although they would still signal other drivers what you're about to do.
A guy I knew from Brazil told the story about a radio contest they had in Manaus, Brazil. Radio station got in trouble. I guess it was for registered motorcycle riders, the first one to get killed riding his bike would have his funeral fully paid for.Read a post I believe on this forum that if you ride a motorcycle you have to always feel like everyone else out there in a vehicle is out to kill you. That’s not being paranoid that’s saying you have to be exceptionally alert.
