The "looking cool" factor thankfully only affected me for the first few months I owned the bike. Now, for me it's about the ride, dressing for the crash, and doing everything I can to get to my destination safely. Does that make sense? :huh:Yeah, maybe you won't look "cool" but I think it's even better at 'taking back a piece of the road' than some vests I've seen because it presents a larger frontal area of yellow to oncoming cagers. It gets noticed I can tell you, and so what that's maybe not always in a positive way
Oh yeah, part of me wants the cool, dark leather jacket to ride around in but a smarter part of me doesn't want to get dead anytime soon, so I'm sticking with the geek jacket for now!
Here's the vest I went with and where I ordered it:

What sold me was the 6 light strips that you can set as constant on or flash mode.
