The Invisible Man

It happens SO often.
It happened to Bob.

I barely noticed a guy on a Black bike, with black jacket and black helmet in back of a black car one night not too long ago, stopped in front of me at a stop light. Thank goodness I did notice him; but I first saw the car in front of him, then I saw the bike. Guys, be thinking about your gear so it might draw some attention to you and your bikes.

Stay safe.

I always ride like I'm invisible, as you told Bob to do.
Don't you be turning into road pizza, amigo. Got few enough bikin' friends as it is...

Unfortunately, true.

Say, what does Bob fly? Is that a Hiller in his profile photo?

He's presently flying a JetRanger BZ. And yes, that's a Hiller FH1100 in the background of his profile picture. Go back in his archives and you'll find he was involved with an outfit that bought the rights to manufacture that bird, and they had hopes of bringing the machine back to the market competitively.
(But Robinson's R66 is gonna be a tough cookie to beat today. Bell quit JetRanger production recently, partly because they no longer wanted to compete in that niche.)
