I wear Black for the most part. I have a Green and Black Belstaff Discovery and an Orange and Black Belstaff Adventure. Other than that all my gear is Black.

I use lateral motion to have other road users take note of my presence.

Do bright colors help? Sure In most instances they would help. An exception would be Alien Vomit Green in the Springtime foliage is like camouflage.

I personally find bright colors distracting when I see the sleave in my line of sight or when reflected in my mirrors.

An alert rider can easily be safe without hi-viz.
