Default Retro Reflective Stickers for helmets

So, I thought that I was going to be making myself safer by applying retro-reflective stickers to my black helmet and making myself more visible.

However, my stepson and his buddies think that I'm going to get my ass kicked by some redneck pickup driver instead and have advised me to remove this one sticker.

What do you think?

Any 'redneck pickup driver' who would kick your butt probably can't read your helmet anyway.

Of course, the final scene of "Easy Rider" comes to mind...

Probably better not to remove 'FORD' if you're planning on leaving 'BOY' on. A whole new crowd to worry about.

If I'm not mistaken, most rednecks drive Chevrolet pick'em ups.

I'm playing it safe. I took it off. But, I had to share it because I thought it was funny.

Everyone has to stop at traffic signs and lights. I've already had one truck try to run me down on purpose at a stop sign for "going too slow" in the rain. Guy was a jerk.

But, there are a lot of jerks in the world.

Still, I did like that sticker. LOL
