It's real popular with the (by stereotype) BMW & Goldwing riders...

I have reflective skull hoodie. All the piping and logos are reflective.

That style of reflective is common in the HD clothing line up, but it is NOTHING compared to the BMW stuff that is safety green

HD is coming around with their line up of Hi-Vis Gear

What do you have?

I have reflective plastic tape on the helmet. Also added reflective cloth tape to my backpack. Way cheaper than the BMW jackets.

I have a black jacket that has reflective piping, but I only wear it in the spring and fall. I have the HD Hi-Viz rain suit, the jacket has a big reflective HD bar/shield logo on the back.

Black jacket with two gray reflective stripeing bands running accros the back and front. Only wear it in the spring and fall as well. Other than that, it's stealth mode for me.

Yellow green scorpion exo 700 helmet, tourmaster yellow green jacket. Since I started wearing these, so far no one turns left or pulls out in front of me anymore. black reflective piping wasn't enough to be seen at distances.

Some of my gear does have reflective striping but I would not really call it "high visibility" I was thinking about picking up something like this http://www.motorcycle-superstore.com/1/1/39/30354/ITEM/Icon-Contra-Mil-Spec-Jacket.aspx but I am now leaning towards a perforated leather jacket rather than another textile (for summer).
