I will never wear "Hi-Viz" yellow when I ride.
Yep, I said it.
Not gonna do it.
No, it is not just to, "be cool". I just don't like yellow. It's so frickin' sunny looking. It's all like, "Ew, look at me! I'm all cute and chipper, like a fuzzy little chick."
But that high visablity crap is way too much. It's like that Frankie says Relax/Wham day-glo crap from the 80s, and I don't like the 80s.
So you can throw all the "safety studies" you want in my direction. Like scientists DON'T manipulate their data to get the results they want.
Look, I worked with a bunch of archaeologists back in the 80s doing data entry. There was one guy who thought that every pot sherd from a site was a, "Ladle Head". Honestly, it was like the entire site was covered with ladle heads. So how did these people fricken' eat without any bowls or plates and just ladle heads. Mind you, NO HANDLES, Just the HEADS!
I used to call him "Ladle Head Ed"....Good Times.
Anyway, Anita Zaffta, was wearing her hig viz riding togs and she got mowed down all the same.
I have people look directly at me and nearly hit me, including that Fokker that made the crybaby gesture at me afterwards.
Some of us just believe a color is not going to stop some jay-hole from knocking you into the next life.
