Here is a related article written by a fighter pilot that I have found immensely helpful, at least from the perspective of improving my own environmental awareness.

Good article.

Feel having suitable LEDs would show your presence readily than only the oem headlights on. Safer for both drivers. 

As a fire hazard, it can be if it overloads the bike electrical system. Normally see this as poor faulty wiring done.
This is a bloody great Bike....!

Another good article that touches on perception, and it covers the importance of movement very well, in particular how we crash into things that don't 'appear' to move though it still doesn't touch on my pet theory that the human brain is wired to prioritize 'eyes'.
