If it is night and you are looking to ride, it is important that you be seen on the road. Many accidents involving motorcycles occur because the other party couldn’t see them on the road. This is why it is important to be see when riding with little light available. Below are some helpful tips from Paris Harley-Davidson® about reflectivity and how it can save you from a dangerous event. Have more questions. Feel free to contact us in Paris serving the areas of Sulphur Springs, Mt. Pleasant, Como-Pickton, McKinney, and Texarkana, Texas.
Harley-Davidson and 3M Reflectivity
Harley-Davidson is known for power and style, and that reputation doesn’t fall by the wayside when it comes to their selection of riding gear. To ensure that every rider on a Harley-Davidson bike can have a safe ride, Harley has partnered with 3M to create a lineup of the most visible motorclothes on the road. The secret is 3M Retro reflective technology, which redirects captured light back at the source instead of scattering the light like other reflective materials. This results in a huge increase in visibility on the road, producing over double the candlepower of other reflective gear, and allowing you to be spotted from ranges of up to 500 feet! When you’re wearing Harley-Davidson motorclothes with 3M reflective material, you give drivers more time to spot you and react on the road, increase everyone’s safety.
Full Body Visibility
Of course when you’re riding the most visible part of your body is your torso, which is why Harley-Davidson's lineup of reflective riding jackets runs the gamut to include something for every rider.
