When I used to teach advanced motorcyclists I road a full instructor spec Honda pan euro with high vis paint job and instructor all over it and still people would pull out in front. You cannot see someone if you are not looking for them. There is a limit to effects of high vis.
IMO - its most important to have lights/reflectors attached to moving parts as this catches the edge of the eye which is tuned to movement.
What do mean that very bright lights reduce contrast? Is that to on coming traffic?
I would have thought very bright lights in front would create very strong contrast of me to the traffic behind me??
