When Safety take Precedence over Cool
« on: July 04, 2013, 08:26:04 PM »
Reflectors ala Blue Pilot...Thanks Pilot for turning me on to these things.
In my mind, these things are as ugly as they are effective...but hey, cool has worn out its welcome in my riding days...replaced by options more in line with comfort and safety.

You can get these from http://www.bluelite.co.uk/  They are too expensive for its worth, but, How much is it worth for cagers to see you better?

good find Blue!

Of course it looks ugly (sort of).  Standing out isn't such a bad thing on a bike.   Being seen is good.

I did a similar thing with mine, though not as expansive an install as this.

...it looks like something from the railroad yard...a train...or a hazardous container...

Hey, there is an idea: put Hazardous Placards on the bike such that people think they will die if they come too close...and ride with a gas-mask on... :034:

..logical to me... :017:    :153:

I am sure you can already see pictures of people riding with gas masks on.....

But I think they may be 'specialist' sites of a more adult nature!

LOL
