Steve you still out there? got a EZ-TAD that needs pole light or what you think is better. Friend killled by PU truck with wide mirrors, knocked tail over teacup in the ditch
IS Steve Newbower still there?
Of course, I am still here. If you follow TadpoleRider.com you should see new posts continually. I am sorry to hear about the loss of your friend. There is not a whole lot one can do to prevent careless people from running over us. As to safety flag pole lights I think they are not that effective in the daytime. Good fluorscent color safety flags that flap very well and bright flashing lights are most effective as well as wearing fluorscent color clothing.
Thanks. I am definitely a newbie to tadpoles.
