I do, everyday.

After being hit and run once and almost hit 8787676454 times, I make sure it's on whenever I'm on the bike.

I ride BW8 too, particularly in the morning.

Some of us make our own Fayettville on our commute route. And Isle of Man, and slalom course, and skidpad... whenever it is safe to do so, that is.

Why? was the dude weaving in and out of traffic at 90mph?

Just kidding. Nope. I only terrorize BW8 west between 59 and 290. Usually on my red C14. Easy to spot when I have on my fluorescent yellow Icon Daytona jacket, like this morning.

Put on my overpants first time this season. Comfy. Arguably the best money I spent on gear so far.

It was not too bad. 41 when I left the house (Clay Rd & Fry Rd) all the way to BW8. My only problem is my hands. Wearing gloves withe the freeze-out inner-gloves didn't help. If I wear winter gloves I feel very uncomfortable operating the levers.
