At least we think about visibility and accident avoidance. I've just come home. It's wet and it's getting dark outside. I've just driven down the lane to the house and passed a young man on a push bike, no lights, headphones on and hoody up. I despair. One for the Darwin Prize?

I sometimes use a Heine Gerick hi viz jacket and a white helmet, particularly during gloomier winter months - am absolutely sure the combination increases my visibility and gets more than a second look for exactly the reason you mention. Will be interesting to see what reaction there is from forum members to talk of hi viz full banana gear - hopefully it will be more measured on a BMW RT forum than on many other bike forums where it is often lambasted by the "if they don't see me headlight..." brigade.
