I have red Sidi's so I am always getting the comments. But that's pretty key since it guarantees that I'm seen. The graphic'd helmet also always got comments, yet another indication of my visibility.
Gear has two values:
1) Improved safety for skin and bones.
2) Increased visibility.
The latter is a reason I'm not a huge fan of black gear.
