Question Quick Survey about Visibility.

Hi there, I'm just working on an assignment at the moment about motorcycle visibility. It would be most appreciated if you could take some time to fill it out. Thanks.

Question.

1. While riding your bike are you concerned about how visible you are to other motorists?

2. Have you at any stage made attempts to become more visible? If so what steps did you take?

3. Are you concerned with your image and what are your thoughts about high viability vests?

4. Are you aware that black is one of the least visible colors and should be avoided by motorcyclists? What are your thoughts on this?

5. What experiences have you had where another motorist failed to see you?

Nobody will see you when they are drunk, distracted, or texting. Just check out that guy that ran over six bikes and killed a few people. He didn't see all six of them??

It never ceases to amaze me just how many motorcycle related marketing assignments there are in college these days, The times that I've looked up classes I can't find anything motorcycle related.

1-yes
2- yes. Orange jacket. Loud gun.
3-No - probably better then nothing
4-Yes, but the danger is over blown. Cellphone users are the greatest danger and they see NOTHING.
5. Take too long to answer properly. Just remember that all cagers are @ssholes.
