    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.
