Bob Thurston wrote the following, which I posted on MNF. I'm reposting it here, w/ my reply, because I think it might be a really useful project.
I have a question for folks to consider: what words, if any, will fit on and be effective on the back of a measuring vest? I remember seeing something years ago in Measurement News. Obviously the shorter the better because the letters can be large. But I don't want something so cryptic that I'll get rear-ended by people racking their brains to figure out what that means (like some licence plates!).
Anyway, my brother came up with "Don't curse the course official". Any other ideas?
I'll work on that one a bit, Doug. It would be good to have something on the front, too. I get cursed out by other cyclists way more than motorists - "wrong side of the road, idiot!" I think drivers don't think about which side of the road cyclists should ride on (in fact they're probably used to seeing them on both) but most cyclists sure are.
If we come up with a good slogan, I think I have a source for inexpensive safety yellow vests, and would be willing to silkscreen them for anyone who wants one. This might be a really useful project.
