hmm, you didn't happen to see that low recumbent just go flying by you did you? I don't see any recumbent here. Do you? No orange flag........nope I just can't see him. He's gonna get run over.
The cars not being able to see you is just plain BS.
Now I do agree though that the biker wearing the bright yellow is way more likely to be seen. My next racing tailfairing will have bright yellow on the rear like what this guy is wearing.
This was a pic a buddy took of me on the hilly hundred. He was following on his lowracer. Pretty good shot if ya ask me since we were both doing well over 32mph at the time.......passing the upright guys doing maybe 19mph by my estimates. Going these speeds, I'm also in front of cars for a longer period of time, so it probably gives the driver more time to see me.
10,000 miles on the road now in one of these and never had a driver tell me I couldn't be seen. They have stopped me plenty of times though to ask questions or just plain gawk at it.
