    I ride at night and have reflectors on my pedals. The wife wants me to get a reflective jacket but I say no. What do you guys use?

    I've worn a green safety vest when commuting during the day. It's way better than being dead.

    You nead all the help you can get out there. Thay real don't see you evean if thay are looking right at you. I had the same person back out in front of me two mornings in a row. And thay looked at me like I should not be in there way. But I have had some people go out of there way to make it safe for me allso.

    I agree with Industry, all the help you can get when night riding is best. I know people who won't wear helmets because it's "lame looking". People amaze me too much.

    helmets and lights are cool. my bike looks like a ufo with all the lights i have.

    well, only two lights but when they are blinking at night they are very bright.

    I used to laugh at the thought. I've always worn a helmet, but considering I'm only two weeks out of a horrible accident I'm looking at my options.
