The diary of a moto-commuter
Visible from far away? You wish... you know people still don't see us...
Sonja,I believe you are right, people just don't see us. Still, I find myself gravitating toward bolder colors. I figure what can it hurt. That said, I will continue to ride as if, "I were invisible and made of glass." I wish I could remember where I heard that first, but it is so right.Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to comment.
Keith, what are those alien mitts?? I have read about Maine lobstermen's gloved... is that what they are?
They are Aerostich Triple Digit Rain Cover/gloves. http://www.aerostich.com/off-and-riding/gloves/rain-glove-covers/aerostich-triple-digit-rain-covers.htmlLove them.
I wondered what that warm glow was in the south....knew it wasn't the sun....sigh. I love those gloves. Sometimes it's hard to find things small enough for me, but I'll look for those. Your backpack is excellent, too!
Glad you could see the glow :)It took me a while to warm up to the gloves, but now I love them. Good like "Tiny" hands.
Circleblue, hi-viz is good but don't depend on it. You are invisible.Good commentary re Hi-Viz
Dom,I'm glad you spoke up. As I was commenting to Sonja about my belief we must ride as if we are invisible and made of glass, you were the person who came to mind where I first heard the invisible part. It may have been the post you linked to.We must do everything we can do to be unhittable. Hi-Viz is a tool not a solution.
