The roads are filled with idiot’s why we suffer due to bad karma of someone else, Our Brain is the most important organ of our body, we always need to keep our head safe, because any injury in the brain could destroy your entire life, due to style,hair,sweat etc many times we feel uncomfortable and try to avoid helmet but please if you have reached here while reading then we would request you to just remind one thing in your mind always, “You are not alone, Your Family needs you” as its just a game of not just a second but even a microsecond could make and destroy any thing in life, its a bitter truth but we all need to know it, so coming back to the point choose your helmet wisely, from wisely we meant to say that don’t bargain for your life, get a helmet which could protect all parts of your entire head , it should not be very heavy, should include chin and nose protector, the visor should be scratch free, always tie it with a buckle, make sure it fits the size of your head I,e should not be loose and should not be tight, and most importantly ensure the certification of the Helmet, example ISI Certified, check the reviews online and get a perfect fit.
After your helmet, the riding gloves are the most important item of safety gear. We humans instinctively try to catch our falls, so your hands are likely going to be the first thing to touch down in a crash. The leather or textile used in motorcycle apparel is vastly different from “fashion” materials and the way it’s stitched together also differs greatly. A proper pair of motorcycle gloves will protect your hands both from impact and abrasion the gloves need to stay on your hands throughout the crash and, to do that, they need a retention strap, which wraps your wrist tightly, While most gloves include “armor” for the top of your hand and knuckles, it’s actually the base of your palm that tends to hit the road first and with the most force. It’s that impact which frequently breaks wrists by shooting energy straight up into the radius and ulna. You’ll need a quality pair equipped with a windproof, waterproof membrane and insulation for bad weather.
Our Feet controls our life movement as well as our motorcycle movement, we control the shifting of gears, rear braking and providing balance to the motorcycle, like your hands, your feet and ankles are so remarkably fragile you can even injure them during everyday activities or while playing ball sports. there are many excellent motorcycle boots out there that are capable of providing bomb-proof protection for your feet.At the very minimum, you’ll need a rugged work or combat boot that provides your foot with good grip, your ankle with tight support and protects your foot from being crushed in an impact with a strong sole.
The boots will support your ankle with dedicated internal webbing and protect from crushing injuries with a steel shank running through the sole. If you are looking for specific motorcycle boots then Dirt boots are designed to limit the articulation of your ankle and provide a solid, comfortable platform to stand on for long periods. Sports boots are designed to provide good articulation and feel without sacrificing protection. Touring boots are designed to be comfortable no matter how bad the weather while providing decent protection. Dedicated motorcycle boots will also interface better with motorcycle pants, working together to increase weather protection, control, and comfort. Riding a motorcycle is a serious job for your feet and legs, use serious footwear.
