While exploring the edges of the internet, I discovered this really cool retro website. You can peek back a few decades and see the things that were innovative for their time. Some pretty crazy inventions, and some others you will recognize. Clearly, this particular idea took!
By the way, this is a good time for those of us who ride to take an inventory of our lights, flashers, and reflectors. Do a test run in the dark and have somebody see how well you show up. Front, back, and sides. You want a bright headlight that keeps you from bumping into things, and makes you visible to oncoming traffic. Lots of folks are using a helmet-mounted setup, which helps to keep your handlebars free.You need red flashers behind you, and plenty of reflection all around so that folks in cars can see you from a distance. With less daylight, as well as the upcoming change in weather, it’s time to shine!
