    It does look a bit ridiculous but having commuted in all weathers for years I actually think I might have invested in one. Nothing worse than riding in the rain and dark in commuter traffic. I do think the design could be better if it was contained in a more streamlined housing a bit like the small shark fin roof top aerials found on cars.
    Be interested to see if it takes off and we ever see one out on the road.
    Life is not a rehearsal . . .

    Great idea especially in slower speeds which is when you really need it.  Rain X requires some speed to work (and you can also turn head side to side).  When you are in the city and in traffic the old standbys aren't always practical bc you need to keep hands on the bars and you can't turn your head in wrong direction (for rain x). I see this as a useful tool.
    I agree, the motor and battery Could be streamlined more.
