4. Reflective Gear


Even the most offensive brightly colored riding gear is just about impossible to see after dark. So, the next step in your plan to keep from becoming a hood ornament is to make yourself light up in headlights. Much of the functional motorcycle apparel currently sold has at least a little reflective material on it. Even cruiser jackets feature reflective piping. When you’re looking to buy riding gear, make sure that it has plenty of reflective material. However, you can always buy a reflective vest that folds up small enough to fit in your jacket pocket if you still prefer that 20 year old leather jacket that has just reached the perfect patina.
