Not to be a smart ass, but wouldn't you think the headlights would give your location away. Also there are reflectors that are still required, and most people have some reflective piping on their gear. As an example, look at kodiakman76s sled, it appears to be daytime, but that reflector on the side is brighter then we think. Guess that could have something to do with the camera flash though.
Are side marker reflectors not a mandatory requirement? I assumed that enough jurisdictions would have legislation requiring something for safety that it would be automatic. Its always dangerous to assume, though,isn't it.
I hope you wouldent stop your sled in the middle of a trail or in the middle of a road at night with any color sled... But even if you are pulled to the side of a trail the chances of getting hit are highly unlikeley, you will probably be with another sled and even if you werent you probably wouldent get hit anyways. I dont think that a black sled is a concearn. they have reflectors, headlights, and tailight.
