If yellow was available in the US, I would already have traded in to get one. Bikes that are black, on black, on black don't appeal to me at all; to gangsta-like.

Yeah, that’s a statistic sample size of 1, category “anecdotal evidence”, but there it is.

I think the yellow is hands down the best looking color on a versys

I’m pretty much convinced that it wouldn’t make a difference if you had a revolving beacon on top of your helmet and lit road flares taped to the handlebars... they still wouldn’t see you because they’re busy looking at their cell phone, map, newspaper, sandwich, eye makeup, ...

You’re better off just making believe that you’re invisible — and riding accordingly.

People just don't pay attention anymore, period. I assume they don't see me....ever....and go from there. Some people actually seem upset when I honk to get their attention when they start creaping out into an intersection or scream up to a stop sign. I would rather tick them off than get creamed by some idiot on the phone who isn't paying attention.
