    2021 Safety Gear Thread


    So as we enter the new riding season here in New England.

    There are some new products out on the market .

    My better half had seen this product featured on Shark Tank .

    So for some reason she wants to keep me around thru at least another riding season.

    Commence Beta testing on Brake Free .

    This time of year I've taken to riding in a hi vis jacket similar to ones worn by cops on detail.

    What's the difference between a bolt and a screw?
    First you screw, then you bolt.

    Ah, the point I was trying to make was that it seems to me that people pay more attention to you if they can't quite tell if you're a cop or not until they get close.

    My new lid arrived so I can attach the Brake Free and get started on testing.

    Anyone think I am to old for the design ?

    I've had cars pull over and let me pass when I wear hi-vis. Last week, riding past construction details, one police officer gave me a thumbsup, another gave me a friendly wave.

    I would like to find a good MC jacket in orange, imho, it is more visible, than the hivis yellow/lime that my Kilimanjaro is, or the hivis yellow of my old Stitch
