How many yellow jerseys have you seen today?

With the tour now going strong, I was amused to see at least three or four riders wearing yellow jerseys on my morning ride today. This was over the course of an hour. How many have you folks seen?

Just my own. It's a Coolmax Raglan Sleeve Jersey (no logos or fancy stripes and only $19.99) from nashbar that I use for commuting to and from work. Not trying to be a poseur, I just want to be seen by the cagers.

I have one jersey, and it's yellow with black accents. The Nashbar Tranzwick jersey, in case you're wondering. Not anywhere near a Maillot Jaune...And I like it that way!

I wear a yellow jersey almost every day on my commute to and from work. Bright colors work for me.

I saw at least one on each ride this weekend, as well as Discovery, CSC and Gerolsteiner.

But you said you didn't like yellow -or something else which suggested that you were sick of yellow in the jersey comp. forum.

Anyway, did you see my post post on page 8? Do you know what I mean? Did you come up with anything?

Does my yellow Hanes Pocket-T that I got from WalMart count?

There was a guy on a group ride Saturday that was wearing an exact replica of the TDF yellow jersey . Needless to say he caught some grief for that one

All the guys I ever see wearing Maillot Jaunes look like couch transplants. But then I live in Illinois.

Liking a color has nothing to do with visibility. I would never wear a yellow shirt off the bike, but while I'm riding, visibility is key to me, so I wear a yellow jersey. My comment in the other thread called for more yellow (than blue), or totally different colors.

I only own 3 jerseys. 2 are yellow with black sleeves. The third one is blue with black sleeves. I purchased all 3 last year. Her's a link to the yellow ones I own.
