I have one of these
a friend gave me, I haven't installed it "yet" for this same reason "riding with other bikes".
When I do get around to doing the install, I will have a courtesy cut off switch for riding buddies.

I'm all for being seen, but dang there's got to be a reasonable limit.
Thanks to the Interstate Highway System, it is now possible to travel from coast to coast without seeing anything.
