I've been riding a bike for 35 years and I thought I know by now what motorists should look out for - me on a motorcycle!

WRONG!

The other evening I crossed the road in my car right in front of an oncoming bike. His lights simply disappeared between the lights of the oncoming traffic which was way behind him! He missed me with millimetres and I felt like a total moron!

Do yourself a favour - if you haven't already - buy a colour headlight protector. It is much more visible than the white lights of cars - day and night! Its amazing how cagers make space for you to pass when they see the orange light behind them!

My bike's protectors are burnt orange which apparently is most visible, but you get yellow, blue etc,

I have been interrogated by cops for using it (some colours are legal and others not) but they agreed with me about the safety aspect and let me go without a fine.

The proctors are attached with valcro and is easily removable. They do dim the light at night but I installed spotlights to overcome the problem. Shouldn't be on a bike at night anyway.

The protectors are expensive at the stealerships, but there are other shops that make them.

I had mine made for R 295 by War Eagle in Pretoria 012 819 1687 (no - I don't have shares with them. I would like to have a share in the receptionist though......).

Most motorcycle problems are caused by the nut that connects the handlebars to the saddle.
