What You Need and Why You Need Motorcycle Gears
What You Need
Riding a motorcycle can be an exhilarating experience, but it can also be dangerous. Motorcycles offer little protection in the event of a crash, so it's essential to wear the right gear to protect yourself. In this article, we'll discuss the essential pieces of motorcycle gear and why you need them.
A helmet is the most important piece of gear you'll ever buy. It protects your head in the event of a crash and can save your life. When selecting a helmet, make sure it fits properly and is DOT (Department of Transportation) or Snell certified. DOT and Snell are two of the leading safety standards for motorcycle helmets.
There are a few different types of helmets to choose from, including full-face, modular, and open-face helmets. Full-face helmets offer the most protection, covering your entire head and face. Modular helmets are a hybrid of full-face and open-face helmets, allowing you to flip up the chin bar for added convenience. Open-face helmets offer the least protection but are popular among riders for their comfort and style.
A good motorcycle jacket provides protection from the elements and road debris. It also offers an additional layer of protection in the event of a crash. Look for a jacket with armor in the shoulders, elbows, and back for extra protection. There are several types of materials used in motorcycle jackets, including leather, textile, and mesh. Leather jackets offer the most protection, while mesh jackets are lightweight and offer excellent ventilation. Textile jackets are a versatile option, providing both protection and comfort.

Gloves come in a variety of materials, including leather, textile, and mesh. Leather gloves offer the most protection, while mesh gloves are lightweight and offer excellent ventilation. Textile gloves are a versatile option, providing both protection and comfort.

Motorcycle boots come in a variety of styles, including touring, sport, and cruiser boots. Touring boots offer the most protection and are designed for long rides. Sport boots are designed for performance riding and provide excellent grip and control. Cruiser boots offer a classic look and are designed for casual riding.

Motorcycle bags are a useful accessory for any rider. They allow you to carry your belongings with you while riding. There are several types of motorcycle bags, including tank bags, saddlebags, and backpacks. Tank bags attach to the tank of your motorcycle and provide easy access to your belongings. Saddlebags attach to the rear of your motorcycle and provide more storage space. Backpacks are a versatile option, allowing you to carry your belongings with you both on and off the bike.

Why You Need Motorcycle Gear
Motorcycle gear is designed to protect you from the elements, road debris, and crashes. Riding a motorcycle can be dangerous, but wearing the right gear can significantly reduce your risk of injury or death. In fact, studies have shown that wearing a helmet reduces the risk of head injury by 69% and the risk of death by 42%.
In addition to protection, motorcycle gear can also provide added comfort while riding. Gloves keep your hands warm and dry in inclement weather. Jackets and pants provide an additional layer of insulation in cooler temperatures. Boots provide added grip and support for your feet while riding.
Without proper gear, you're putting yourself at risk every time you ride. Investing in quality motorcycle gear is essential for any rider. From helmets to boots and everything in between, each piece of gear serves a specific purpose in keeping you safe and comfortable while on your bike. Don't take chances with your safety – invest in quality gear today!
