Thoughts On Reflective Hi-viz Riding Gear

Thoughts On Reflective Hi-viz Riding Gear


It’s a funny thing as you get older. You become more aware of the dangers of riding. One thing I think a lot of riders overlook is reflective clothing. This day and age with all the smart phone drivers out there the time for being seen is more important than ever. This is where proper amount reflective riding gear comes in.

I remember way, way back when I bought my first street motorcycle. I wanted to get some good riding gear to go with it. I asked one of the salesmen about reflective/hi-viz jackets and he pointed out a couple brands. My first impression was that these jackets lacked the proper amount of reflectiveness or color for them to actually be effectively seen out on the road. I said to the guy, don’t you have anything else? Something with more reflective material? He laughed at me and said why… do you want to look like a Christmas tree all lit up riding down the road? I laughed back and moved on never really thinking about it again.

Fast-forward to now, many years later. I have little more rider wisdom and now I fully gear up for the war on the streets. The enemy, the distracted driver and they are all over the place. I have grown out of the, “but I don’t look cool” thing and think more along the lines of, "Is this gear going to protect me? Are cars going to see me?"


That brings me to reflective jackets, pants, gloves, etc. Ask yourself the question. Do I have enough reflective/hi-viz gear on when I ride? The right amount of reflective clothing can be very effective at all times of the day. If you don’t have riding gear that has reflective material on it then you can easily add on a vest or belt and can even go as far as buying some high-vis yellow and orange clothing from eBay or Amazon.

Just think, someday you might be riding along and catch someone’s eye before they pull out or worse left turn front of you. You never know, a little reflective high-visibility clothing might save your live.

Fast Bikes Riding Mulholland!

Fast Bikes Riding Mulholland!

I laughed when I saw the cop with the radar gun. I can't believe that people would want to do that for a living, oh well. Like I have said before, this has got to be the coolest roads to ride sport bikes on. If you have good riding gear, good tires and you know how to handle your bike you can have one of the most mind blowing experiences of your riding life!

Misjudges A Corner And Crashes Hard Wearing His Airbag!

I wonder if target fixation was the cause of this crash? Anyway this rider crashes pretty hard. The cool thing is that he was wearing a neat airbag protection system. Looks like it worked!

Loops And Crashes A Wheelie. Nasty Road Rash!

As most of us riders know. When you play around on motorcycles with no gear on, you're asking for some cool road rash to show the lady's. Win win is guess...

I guess he was trying to hand shift gears while riding a wheelie. Remember, get distracted while riding a wheelie and you might crash like this guy did.

Not having a good day is right. Watch as this rider takes a corner and then lowsides and crashes into off the side of the road. Glad to see that he was all geared up!
