As a motorcycle enthusiast, you know the dangers that can come with riding. To ensure you'll stay as safe as possible in an eventuality, wear the protective gear mentioned in this post.

How to Stay Protected when Riding Your Motorcycle

Riding a motorcycle can give you a sense of freedom and thrill that's hard to come by otherwise. However, that feeling of adventure can quickly turn into fear if you're ever in an accident. This is because, when you ride, your body is completely exposed, which means you could seriously injure yourself, or worse, in an eventuality. To keep your body as guarded in a dire situation, use this post as a guide to know what protective gear you should wear each time you ride.

Browse through AMSOIL's catalog to find the best products for your motorcycle's maintenance.

To Shield Your Head

Let's start with protecting arguably the most important part of your body: your head. Unless hitting the road and cracking your skull seems like an ideal situation for you, wearing a helmet is a must when riding a motorcycle (not to mention, you're legally obligated to do so). Helmets often have a hard shell and a softer interior, meaning that in the event of you having an accident, one will absorb some of the energy emitted during the impact, and prevent it from getting to your head. That's why it's necessary that you and your passengers wear a quality helmet at all times when riding.

To Guard Your Hands

Contrary to what you may believe, wearing gloves while riding your motorcycle isn't just useful for aesthetic purposes. Yes, they may look cool. However, a pair of thick riding gloves with reinforced palms can guard this delicate part of your body. For instance, if as you ride, you get hit by branches, your hands won't get scratched up from them. Moreover, if you're in a wreck, gloves can help you avoid bruises, cuts, and even fractures to your hands, as people often put their hands out to break falls. Don't neglect your hands and keep them safe with gloves!

To Preserve Your Eyes

Do you value your eyesight? If you answered "yes," then you better be wearing protective eyewear to shield the windows to your soul; your eyes! Vision is of the utmost importance when riding your motorcycle, and it can be severely compromised when going fast down the road, as the sunlight, rain, dust, bugs, or other elements, can make their way into your eyes. If your headgear isn't a full-face helmet, then you must wear goggles or special sunglasses to cover up.

To Cover Your Body

Plenty of people own motorcycle jackets and long jeans, and they wear them as a fashion statement. The difference here is that you actually need them to stay safe when riding your motorcycle. As you know, when you ride, your body is completely subjected to the circumstances and conditions around it. This means that if there's bad weather or if your fall, your body will quite possibly suffer from it, a lot. A motorcycle jacket, as well as long jeans, can keep your limbs from getting scratched, cold, or affected by the external elements and situations.

To Care for Your Feet

More often than not, your decision making process for what footwear to don boils down to either comfort, utility, or fashion. If you are riding your motorcycle, however, you should also consider your safety. This is because, riding with heels, flip flops, or open shoes, can actually leave your feet at the mercy of external forces. If you want to ensure your feet and ankles will be left intact in an eventuality, choose to wear boots. A strong, flexible pair will shield your lower extremities, and won't interfere with your riding abilities.

To Protect Other Parts of You

Finally, there are other items you can wear when riding your motorcycle to remain as unharmed as possible. For example, if you have sensitive ears, and you'll be cruising down a very noisy highway, you may want to get ear plugs. They will shut some of the commotions out, ensuring these important organs won't be damaged. Another tip would be to wear thicker clothes if you'll be riding during the colder seasons, or don a raincoat if it's raining. This way, the bad weather conditions won't affect your health negatively.
