TESTING THE LATEST HI-VIZ VEST
There are appears to be some interest in hi-viz vests of late.
This interest has even caused respected motorcycle publications to conduct non-scientific “testing” of a certain, and especially odious, hi-viz vest, probably in order to ascertain the vest’s efficacy in a) being seen by drivers; b) getting the wearer beaten like a lame dog by a fellow motorcyclist, or c) having the wearer Tasered into organ-failure by the police.
Our interest was piqued.
We thus caused such a vest imported into this country by buying it from the makers, took it to the Pilgrimage, and tested it as only proper motorcyclists should test such a thing.
Here are the results…
BIKE ME! would like to express its gratitude to the makers of this vest for selling it to us and for shipping it over in good order. Having bought one, tested it and subsequently burned it, BIKE ME! is pleased that it has removed such an insult from the face of this planet. BIKE ME! would like to apologise for the toxins this burning has released into the atmosphere and trusts that any future such burnings will be conducted in a controlled environment.
THE BIKE ME! TEST VERDICT: It burned magnificently.
