Re: Santa list?

Perhaps the HiViz derailment could be separated into a new topic in the motorcycle section by Admin/Mods?

Re: Santa list?

Personal opinion: For pedestrians - great, I'm all in favour - as long as they don't imagine it will help them. To quote Sussex Uni advice to the police: "It's a uniform, not a forcefield" Don't expect to be seen , don't expect a driver to know what they're seeing, don't expect them to re...

Re: Santa list?

So back to my question :) Where - describe an instance - where it might provide a benefit. I managed it ;) Well, like the one you mentioned of waiting in a side road to exit (I had it in my original draft of my first post :) ). How about sat a T-junction on an unlit B road waiting to turn and the v...

Re: Santa list?

Glowing: . . . all can reflect some light in various directions, but not at full intensity. Come on! You know that's not how retro-reflective material works - it does exactly the opposite! If it scatters light then it's just 'normal' material. Yes, I know it reflects strongest back to where it came...

Re: Santa list?

You are preaching to the wrong person. I'm well aware of the shortfalls of hiviz and reflective jackets. I regularly point out all the things you have mentioned to others. Likewise the current trend to make the front of your bike look like a Christmas Tree with add on lights ;) Do I ride any differe...

Re: Santa list?

I'd also add that the reflective material is also illuminated when I am presenting a side profile to any vehicle . At that time my headlights and rear lights are not that visible.

Re: Santa list?

Yes and yes ... but not that old model in the pic ;) The point you make is one I regularly make about hiviz during the day. I don't regularly wear it and I'm quite vocal about everyone riding around in it. However I do wear retroreflective at night and these jackets have many times the material that...

Re: Survey

Scores of adolescents have posited theories about significance of the number. The actor Stephen Fry claimed to know the true answer, but won't tell, saying he'll take it to his grave. The author himself rather undermined the myriad analyses when he dismissed them all with the simple answer that the ...
