  • fluorescent Jackets...

    Well, had my first bike for 4 days i almost got killed today by someone turning into a street from a junction. Emergancy brakes, new tyres (I'm careful at junctions in general too) saved me today.

    I pulled them over, and excuse was I didn't see you. Poor guy was shacking though.

    Anyways, now i think fluorescent clothing are cool, they are hip and sleak, and i will be buying one

    Just wanted to share that.

    If cleanliness is next to godliness, why was jesus a dirty sandal-wearing beardo?

        by PSB standards, that was practically a hug
        Being an Australian is not an excuse for being dumb and racist.

                I did the bright vesty thing when I was new to riding. Cant remember why or when I stopped!!!
                while riding home today ... I spotted a person on the freeway.... on their bike...in the middle of the day...with the sun out....with the bright fluoro vest on.
                They were obvious as and stuck out like dogs...thingys...
                I just reckon any behaviour that keeps us safe... is a good thing...

                    I nearly got run over by a lovely young man who decided not to give way at a roundabout....on my first ever ride on my bike. For the rest of the time I was learning, I always wore a bright yellow or orange vest.

                    Now I wear black.... and ride like no one can see me anway.

                      If my Dririder came in Fluoro - I'd probably do it, but the vests disappear a fair bit with a back-pack...

                        It's simple. Ride like no-one can see you.

                        Even if you wear a bright flouro jacket with a yellow helmet and paint your bike in bright orange, some idiot will still be playing with their wang or texting their mate and turn in front of you or cut you off causing a near-miss or worse cause you to have an off.

                        Just don't put yourself into a false sense of confidence because you decide to dress like a lollipop man or start preaching safety gear to everyone.

                          the jackets, they do nothing!

                            Yes, they can help sometimes, when the driver is already looking out for you.

                            But when they aren't, it can give you a false sense of security. Assume they don't see you and things will go much more smoothly
