They're on Bimmers and not wearing hi-viz? Weird.

I am not sure that your argument is sound on this one Zelatore. We are likely to get the laws stuffed up our nose in the foreseeable future and the guys making them employ this rider.



See how his fluoro vest stops him from falling off?

And he can't even beat the hog next to him. He's clearly not man enough for the beemer.

Man, I guess they'll hire anyone.

I don't know how they do it without flouro. I got on my bike today to move it around the garage and immediately fell off because I forgot my flouro. I'm sure it was the mailman's fault because it sure as Hell wasn't mine.

They must mix in some anti-gravity compound in the fluorescent colored fabric. I can't figure out what else it might be that keeps the rider falling off the bike.

I was just thinking about this:

What if, instead of wearing flouro to keep from falling off, we put one or both feet down at a stop? I think that would give the bike more stability at a standstill and prevent the rider from having to look around for someone to blame when he falls. I mean, finding someone to blame might be difficult if you're all alone somewhere.

Better yet install flexible training wheels so the bike can only be leaned over only so far in any corner. They can be adjusted per the type of bike IE: Baggers, etc etc etc and weight of the rider.

No more of this:
