Motorcycle clothing provides comfort and protection

By Francis Learoyd

Stating the importance of suitable motorcycle clothing may seem glaringly obvious, but some people do find reasons not to bother, thus taking major risks with their safety. They may love the sense of freedom and speed they get from riding a bike, but they risk losing it all without the right gear.

Your motorcycle helmet is the first thing you should buy. A helmet will protect you from some head, brain or facial injuries, and can reduce any damage caused by an impact. Once your head is protected, think about finding a motorcycle jacket.

Next, the arms, torso and back need to be covered and protected with a motorcycle jacket. Some may protest, saying that a jacket gets in the way or feels too stuffy in hot weather, and yet a jacket provides a durable cover designed to withstand abrasion in the event of a collision or a fall. A cotton t-shirt can provide no protection in the slightest, and exposed flesh doesn't stand a chance.

The appropriate jacket and motorcycle trousers provide protection from the elements and from any surfaces you may hit. Make sure you don't neglect your hands and feet now that most of you is covered.

Protect your feet and ankles with motorcycle boots that are designed to shield you from the heat produced by the bike's engine and exhaust pipe, and protect you in case of an accident. Ensure your motorcycle gloves are full-fingered - you will have better grip on the handlebars, even in the rain, and will also end up with fewer blisters...

Motorcycling often represents something that cannot be achieved with a car: a sense of liberty and movement. In order to experience these sensations to the fullest, motorcycle clothing needs to provide three things: performance, comfort and (most importantly) protection.
