They are legal in my state. Most of the newer Goldwing riders around here use them. In fact, it is unusual to see a newer Goldwing without them. Many also put a whole row of flashing lights across the rear of the trunk that come on when they apply the brake.
And as I stated in another post, I often use the 4 way flashers in slow moving stop and go traffic.
As far as some moron slamming on the brakes in front of you, I have had that happen many times without a headlight modulator. I maintain sufficient following distance to stop in time. A motorcycle will easily out brake a car, but you have to give yourself fraction of a second for reaction time. I am also very careful about getting boxed in, I constantly look for ways to get around somebody in front of me. If I have to, I will run a red light, use the shoulder, or even hop on the sidewalk. Under no circumstances will I confront rabbit brained anthropoids like that, they could very well be armed. Better to get a ticket than get shot. Jerry.
I am a motorcyclist, NOT a biker.
