Took me a few times of watching this crash to see that he ran over what looks to me oil or ice that was in the road. I was saying "Full face #helmet! Full face helmet, dam it..." the whole time! Ouch! It's just amazing to me sometimes how fast the day of fun riding can take a turn for the worst!

#Reflective Hi-viz #Riding Gear
http://bikerpunks.com/mediaviewer/5441/thoughts-on-reflective-hi-viz-riding-gear.html

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 gear on when I ride? The right amount of reflective/hi-viz 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 #hi-viz yellow and orange clothing from #eBay or #Amazon.

Yea the white truck is a jerk for left turning but as a rider it is your responsibility to anticipate that left turn happening. If you can't do that then you will end crash into the back of the other riders that could. #motorcyclecrash #bikelife #lefttuns #cagers #accident #crashes
