Nothing says "Don't Shoot!" quite like a bright orange jersey, right? It's not actually blaze orange, alas, but something called "persimmon orange." Who would name a biking jersey, a jersey that's going to get sweaty and nasty in no time, after a fruit?
I've never eaten a persimmon, I don't think, either. Why not just call it orange? I don't get naming clothing after food, I guess.
A blaze orange jersey would be even better, and I'd totally buy a blaze orange camo jersey if I could find one, just for the amusement of passing drivers.
And now, I'm going to put that on and take a ride in my sunroom, because it's cold outside!
