This really is an amazing demonstration of why motorcycles are sometimes not seen:

If you do as instructed and stare at the center green dot the yellow dots will disappear from time to time...
If you nod your head up and down or back and forth the yellow dots always remain visible....

This lends STRONG support to the suggestion that motorcyclists should be careful to always be changing their relative position to other motorists..... slow up a little bit, speed up a little bit ... switch to the other side of the lane, but never stay stationary from other vehicle's perspective...
