Even 15 years later, the best source of motorcycling safety data and advice is the "Hurt Report," a government-funded study done at the University of Southern California by a group of motorcyclists led by famed accident investigator Professor Harry Hurt. That report recommended painting the front of your bike bright colors -- whites and yellows -- and wearing a bright colored jacket. Unfortunately, unlike sport bikes and touring machines, few cruisers have any significant bodywork up front to paint. You can wear a bright colored jacket and helmet, however. A single yellow, orange, or almost anything flourescent will make you pop out from the background anywhere. No, they aren't the traditional black uniform or cruisers, but you are arugged individualist, a lone wolf who doesn't have to follow the herd, and you do dare to be different, right?
