If you really want to be seen, this is an option.
I'm not about to spend $1000. on a headlight, no matter how good the
Betty is. There's been one negative comment about the Nighthawk
Emitter, does anyone have some positive experience?

One very simple light I think you are missing that is much better for
being noticed than all the bright lights you have currently. Mount a
small LED light on the handlebars pointing backwards so that it lights
up your body (angle it so you don't get light in your eyes). Wearing
something with reflective stripes on it makes it even better. People
being able to see that its a cyclist coming towards them and not just
some lights that could be anything, helps a great deal IMO. On a full
size you can also rig a rear light on the mudguard pointing forward to
illuminate your body from the back but on a PR its much more difficult
though not impossible.
