I have never been stopped, but I am convinced that tailgaters back off. When I am passed, I get before and after turn signal consideration.
Something to think about Rob is what might happen to your bike while parked in some parking lot while you’re away from it. Some low life who got a ticket last week sees your tag frame takes you for a cop and kicks your bike over or some such thing to get even with the cops for the trouble they caused him or her. If you go to your local police station parking lot where the officers park their cars you’ll see very few indicators on their cars to let the public know they are the police the few you may see are called Rookies. Sorry to get off the subject line but just a heads up.
I got a new white helmet just because I read here how helpful it can be. I wear ATGATT and earplugs mostly after joining this site. I know your right. It’s a pain in the tail to get ready each time but better a pain now than later. Every time you come up with a good idea I take to it like a dog to a bone. As well I should.
Now I am ordering a new vest. It is the right thing to do. Makes perfect sense.
This is a photo of me about to go to the grocery store. I have added a little extra gear which appears to help people avoid me. Even when I pull into parking lots people give me parking spaces its just amazing. I think it’s the white helmet!
The AR's nice, but you should carry your namesake--a Thompson submachine-gun.
