Well my Harley riding buddy doesn't really care what I ride or wear but it was some guy he knew that we were riding with. Of course I always think of something clever I could have said after the fact.

I think my next helmet will be Hi Viz and I'll get whatever jacket I want. That way when off the bike I don't look like a fireman wannabe or a spacemen, but MAY catch some extra attention on the road.
I bought a Schuberth helmet this summer and couldn't really think of a good reason not to get the hi-viz so that's what I got. I would like to think since it's higher up and not behind the windshield and the like it might help.
