I read where motorcycle groups are sponsoring rallies and other events attempting to educate motorists to be aware of and see them, which I fully endorse. What puzzles me is their pleas to be seen and their attire seem to be contradictory.

Of the few veteran bikers who wear a helmet, most helmets are black with black or dark clothing and the rider is on a black bike. It seems to me an investment in a $2.98 fluorescent vest for visibility would be a better investment than say, an unscheduled visit to the E. R. or, heaven forbid, something worse! Just wonderin.’
