Some people adore riding their motorcycles at night due to decreased traffic and Roads that are more open. Other people hate it because you lose a great deal of visibility at night, and it is even more difficult for other cars to see you.
Whatever your position is on riding motorcycles at night, it is likely that you will need to do so at some point if you ride with any regularity. According to the Motorcycle Legal Foundation, in order to stay safe as a motorcyclist after dark you should focus on making yourself visible and protecting your night vision.
Choosing the right gear makes a big difference in how visible you are, particularly at night. Unfortunately, the signature motorcyclist cover appears to be black, and this is the worst color that you could wear at night. If you do not want to invest hundreds into a hi-viz neon green textile jacket, consider purchasing a construction vest, instead. This way, you can wear black leathers during the day and be much more visible at night.
Protect your night vision
Keeping your eyes focused at the far right line at the edge of your side of the road can help you protect your night vision. Most cars have very bright headlights, and these can blind you. Particularly since you are sitting up a little bit higher as a motorcyclist as compared to other passenger vehicle drivers, this can be very dangerous for you.
Also make sure that your visor is crystal clear if you are driving at night. While smeared bug guts may not hurt your vision during the day, at night they can be very dangerous.
