Had two really narrow escapes where cars just havent seen me decided to buy a Richa reflective waistcoat now nobody nods!! do they think Im an anorak!!!
Riding an unusual bike in the correct gear is most likely to be the cause for cagers to be more curious as to your mode of transport.
I am not a anorak .. just VERY VERY UNCOOL ..
Well thats the option of the Sportbikers round here.. Its very uncool to be seen ...
Very uncool to drive a transalp rather than a R1 ..
Very Uncool to drive a bike with a white helmet ..
Very uncool to be a friendly and courteous driver.
But at least the cagers can see me , I noticed a huge difference when coming to junctions etc ..
I was unsure if I wanted to be Uncool .. but like you after a close call ,
I decided to be uncool and ALIVE .
And most bikers still nod or wave .. even the bike cops .. Haha
Agree alit about colour as there is usually a see of hiviz in urban areas.I don't think it is the colour that is uncool, but the generally cheap design of the bib/jacket. Some manufacturers are starting to make day-glo variants of their motorcycle clothing, and these do look much better.
Iam cheap .. live in Aberdeen .. LOLI don't think it is the colour that is uncool, but the generally cheap design of the bib/jacket. Some manufacturers are starting to make day-glo variants of their motorcycle clothing, and these do look much better.
I have the yellow one, they do look better than the old builders bib type.Agree alit about colour as there is usually a see of hiviz in urban areas.
This is expensive but in orange is good

People tend to look twice as they can't suss out what you are! Two looks are better than one
I can well believe that. I used to have a bright AA yellow 110 Defender and I used to get people pulling out on me!I remember a discussion years ago as to the merits or otherwise of having your motorbike headlights on for visibility - one person said when they weren't on their bike they drove a bloody great big red fire-engine, with all headlights on, flashing blue lights and sirens going, and STILL people pulled out in front of him!
