Good site. The Military requires us to wear a reflective vest at night. I wear mine no matter what time of day it is.

I wear the ICON milspec vest on base, mandatory to wear contrasting color in datlight and reflective at night. The milspec vest does it all.

It's interesting around here, scooter riders have increased dramatically, (probably like everywhere), but here there's a common misconception that you don't need to wear a helmet when riding one. (we have helmet laws, 50cc and over)

Anyway, almost every scooter rider you see will wear a Hi-Vis vest or jacket, but very few will wear a helmet. (Usually you see the helmet being used as a foot rest on the the footboards.)

They sure seem to have alot of trust in the hi-vis stuff, and while I don't doubt it cuts the risk, I don't think it eliminates it, and I don't know what the hell the local scooter riders are thinking.

Theauhawk I really like your Kawasaki emblem with the woman on it!!! I'd love to get a patch like that!
Is there somewhere I can go to get that printed out? Or get a patch?
