Learning about Motorcycle Safety

Motorcycles are a blast to drive and knowing
about motorcycle safety will guarantee that you
have a good experience on your motorcycle.

Most people like the freedom and speed of a
motorcycle.

They are fast and allow you to maneuver in and
out of traffic easier.

However, they are a dangerous piece of equipment
that everyone who is planning to ride one needs
to research about.

Kinds of Motorcycle Safety Gear

Motorcycles are dangerous and it is now necessary
for you to wear protective gear at all times.

Since your whole body is exposed while driving a
motorcycle you are more likely to get severely
injured in a crash.

Before you get onto the motorcycle you would want
to make sure that you have the proper gear.

Your head is the most vulnerable, so it is very
important that you wear a helmet every time you
ride.
11
Most people that have died due to motorcycle
accidents are because of head trauma.
12
Also, your eyes can get damaged when flung from
the motorcycle so eye protection wouldnt hurt.
13
The next thing you want to make sure that you
have is a proper protective jacket.
14
These protect the skin, bones, and internal
organs.
15
When thrown from a bike it is common for the body
to be dragged by the bike causing road burn.
16
Lastly, you would want to have protective pants.
17
These protect your lower body from damage from
the road and the motorcycle as well.

A motorcycles exhaust can get very hot and it is
common for a rider to burn his leg.

handy for riding a motorcycle.
21
There are some additional rules that a
motorcyclist must follow.

A good one is that the motorcycle should stay
visible to other driver.

You will be retrained on the rule of the road and
on special rules for a motorcycle when you
complete the required safety course.
24

Make sure that your accessories, like your tires,
are fine and dont need any replacements or
updates.
26
Upgrading your motorcycle accessories can also
increase the safety of the motorcycle.

brakes that can drastically decrease the chances
of you being involved in a motorcycle accident.

are a nice thrill to people, but they can be very
