Important Motorcycle Safety Gear

Riding a motorcycle can be fun, but it can also be very dangerous. In order to be a responsible rider, you need to reduce the chances of causing an accident for someone else as well as reducing the chances that you will be involved in a crash. One of the most important steps you need to take to accomplish these two goals is to wear the right safety gear every time you ride – even if it is just around the block.

This article looks at the four most important safety items that you need to wear each time you ride.

 

An Approved and Certified Helmet

You may know that you need to wear a helmet when you get on your motorcycle. However, just any general helmet is not enough. It is important to wear a helmet that is approved by the Department of Transportation and has been ECE 22.05 certified. The helmet should fully cover your entire face to avoid damage to your facial features, not just your skull. Moreover, if you are involved in any type of motorcycle accident involving an impact to your head-even a little- you must throw your helmet away and buy a new one.

Specially Padded Riding Jacket and Pants

Wearing a leather jacket and pants will make you look the part while riding your motorcycle, but it will not provide you the full protection you need in an accident. You need to wear a jacket and pants that are padded in order to help reduce the chances of injury, such as road rash or abrasion when you fall off your bike in an accident.

Boots That Cover Your Ankles

You should wear boots while riding your motorcycle for more than just looking cool. Ankle high boots will help protect your toes, feet and ankles in an accident. In most accidents your feet and ankles are the first part of your body that makes contact with the ground. Protecting them is important in reducing the likelihood of serious injuries.

Wear Thick, Padded Gloves

When you are involved in an accident and get thrown off your motorcycle your hands will most likely make a hard impact with the ground. Wearing thick, padded and high quality gloves will reduce the severity of injuries in a crash.
