Many motorcyclists understand the safety measures to take when hitting the road for a ride, but did you know that by ensuring proper rider attire you can help protect yourself from serious harm? Here are some important pieces of clothing that you should consider adding to your safety checklist.

Leather Material
Though commonly misunderstood as a fashion statement, leather apparel is actually made of soft and thick material that is developed to keep from grabbing like other fabrics. Additionally, leather slides and protects the skin from scrapes.

Gloves
By wearing gloves during rides, you can help protect your hands from the elements as well as if you need to use them to brace for a fall.

Body Armor
Impact-resistant foam protective gear worn under clothing can help further cushion your body’s impact in an accident.

Helmet
Wearing a helmet shouldn’t be a big surprise when talking about motorcycle safety. However, since almost half of motorcycle-related fatalities happened when riders weren’t wearing one, it’s important to address proper helmet wear. Be sure to wear your helmet at all times – even when simply riding down the street. Make sure that your helmet meets the Department of Transportation safety standards, fits appropriately, and has a face shield in order to ensure that it will protect your head and face

Footwear
Protective motorcycle boots are specifically designed to help give you traction, protect against the elements, and even reinforce your ankles and soles.

    oday’s motorcycle boots for men are more attractive and each one possesses a different character. Men’s motorcycle boots used to be all about safety and durability, but now, it has its own personal style.

    nice your blog clothing….Is there a universal “best” motorcycle? Unfortunately, such a boot does not exist on planet Earth. Still, the good news is that the “best” motorcycle boot is relative to each rider’s needs and preferences

    I like that you mentioned that motorcycle boots are designed to give you extra traction and protection. It makes sense that it would be dangerous to ride with regular sneakers on. I am going to be buying a motorcycle this year, and I want to make sure I know how to be safe. I will make sure to invest in this protective gear to avoid injury!
