That used to be a requirement (and may still be insome states). Now the trend is to wear as much camoflauge as possible. Unfortunately hunting accidents seem to have increased as a result.
Yes camouflage I prefer but the places I used to shoot did not have many other people there and it was shotguns rather than long range rifles I had.
Back to motorcycles.
I find that practicing emergency stops and manouvers in a parking lot twice a year helps me to react a bit faster. I also practice low-speed riding. The rear brake is a wonderful tool for maintaining a below-walking-speed pace while allowing you to keep the engine speed up and take advantage of the gyroscopic effect of the engine.
Yes I agree practice is very important. Low speed riding was part of the motorcycle test here as I am sure it will be in the States. Reaction times and speed control are lifesavers. I had a few close incidents with cars when I was younger, and I learned my lesson.
My wife got me a florescent neon green sweat shirt it is now required riding gear until I get a flo neon green jacket. I am amazed at how far back cars are staying from me when I wear the sweat shirt.
May get them back even more if I strap on a shotgun
so many sq inches of orange is required when hunting in NH
As Thomas Hobbes wrote 'a power to keep them in awe' well the shotgun would do that lol.
That reminds just bought a new camo hunting suit..
