I had a Epiphany

Discussion in 'General Motorcycling Discussion' started by Clayt0nB, Jan 27, 2012.

  1. Was on my way home, sitting in the cage and I was thinking about bike colors how someone here said they had a white bike which is clearly more visible then a black one. (Made my decision of weather to get white or black a little easier)

    Anyway, So you know how the ninja 250 is like "That beginner bike"
    And its main color is that bright green....?


    Green = High vis, because its a beginner bike!

    I felt boss when I figured that out.
  2. oooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooook
  3. pretty sure kawasaki green has been around longer than "high vis"

  4. You, indeed had an epiphany. Green is good. You know what they say about motorcycles. If it isn't lime green, it's probably a LEMON! Buy a green Kawasaki and join the good side of the FORCE!

  6. I had an Epiphany once, oh no, my mistake, it was a Tiffany :)

  7. They actually chose it because green was considered 'unlucky' by everyone else when they started racing in the 70s... Basically a big '**** you' to superstition and showed their confidence in the bikes they produced.
  8. I don't know what 'boss' means... but if you meant 'slightly retarded (just like middle management)' then yes. ](*,)

    And before anyone comments... I have a disclaimer. Read it. Cheers. :beer:
  9. Your 100% correct.

    And, I like that fact from toadcat about the superstition. Good move by Kawasaki.
  10. choosing a colour of bike purely on visibility is not what motorcycling is about.

  11. No one said that..

    I was just stating the obvious, and kinda asking if it was intentional or a coincidence.

    If you couldn't tell, this thread is far from serious.
  12. You are either a troll (who doesn't understand grammar) or you work for the RTA/Vicroads/other agency and are part of some misguided education campaign.

    Of course there is still the slight possibility that you are, in fact, an idiot.

    I seriously hope you are an idiot, because I have no time for time wasters.
  13. You said it right there.
  14. Green would be low viz if you were riding against a backdrop of a green field or leafy green trees.
    Everyone knows red came first and is faster and was obviously designed by a Communist.
  15. -Sigh-

    I was more referring to the fact that I can't decide if I like white or black more. The viz is a bonus. Helps my decision. I still love the look of the black though.
  16. **** your dumb
