Recently, we ran a poll that asked you whether the color of you moto gear mattered to you. This time we ask you whether you wear high visibility gear and if you don’t why. This poll comes on the heels of a recent National Traffic Safety Administration report examing why motorcycle riders do or do not wear high-viz gear.
The report grouped riders into four categories:
- Cruiser Motorcycle
- Touring Motorcycle
- Sport Motorcycle
Interestingly, the report did not include a category for adventure motorcycles which is a significant segment of motorcycles.
The report concluded that the number one reason riders don’t wear high-viz gear is that it is ugly or that the color(s) don’t fit in with their riding “culture”.
So we want to ask you whether you wear high-viz gear regularly. Or if you don’t, why you don’t. It will be interesting to see whether our community’s riders match the findings of the report.
