Affordable Motorcycle Half Helmet

For safety reasons getting in to your  riding gear to head out on the road with nothing but the wind and sky above you and the pavement just few inches from your feet is important.  The feeling of being out on the open road is what biking is all about, and it is why you are passionate about riding. Especially as a sport bike rider your safety depends on quality riding gear. Guys that ride cruisers do not feel it is as necessary but the fact is no matter what you ride if you wear quality motorcycle gear you might avoid major injury if you do go down. Without it its you versus the pavement and the pavement is likely to take a chunk out of your butt.

Should you have an unforeseen accident, your head is very vulnerable therfore making a motorcycle helmet the most essential piece of gear. The most deadly injuries to motorcycle riders are to the chest and head, and a properly fitting helmet greatly reduces your chances of experiencing a life-changing injury. To keep yourself as safe as possible while on the road, purchase and use a helmet as part of our overall motorcycle gear.

Now lets face facts some of us that live in states that do not have helmet laws will by pass wearing one. If that is your choice make sure you do wear proper eye protection. All it takes is one rock kicked up by the car in front of you to cause permanent vision damage. Choose eyewear that is labeled as safety wear to ensure it does not shatter if hit and provides true protection for your eyes. Preferably goggles or sunglasses made for riding are perfect. Some  of these also come with lenses that will change color depending on if your riding in the day or night.

Affordable Motorcycle GlovesAnother important piece  is your motorcycle gloves. Gloves keep your hands steady on the handlebars while also protecting them from debris that may be thrown up by vehicles around you. This piece of riding gear also provides protection from the wind chill, which has more of an impact than you think once you reach top speeds. The right pair needs to have sufficient traction and grip, give you some movement for your fingers and be slightly insulated. When choosing what gloves to wear think about where you will be riding. If its summer some vented gloves are probably your best option while during the winter time you want well insulated, possibly gauntlet type leather gloves to keep you warm.

Affordable Leather Motorcycle jacketsMotorcycle jackets are another component that offers protection from debris as well as the road in case of an accident. Thick leather is usually the material chosen for this particular piece of riding gear, and for good reason. It gives protection from debris while also allowing you a sense of your own style. Also the thick leather creates a decent buffer between you and the pavement in case you go down. Choose a jacket that is made from fairly lightweight materials, yet is strong enough to protect you if you fall or are hit by debris.

If you are in a topical climate another option might be a mesh jacket. Mainly if its a 100 plus degrees outside you are not likely to put on that thick leather jacket. A mesh jacket usually comes made out of a Kevlar type weave that will hold up incase you make contact with the road. Also most of these biker jackets also have added hard protection for the forearms, back, and shoulders built right in to them.

Finally, make sure you invest in riding gear to protect your feet. The entire foot and ankle needs to be covered by your riding boots. Leather or a synthetic substitute is a good option for protecting your feet, and motorcycle boots in these materials also complete the look of your wardrobe nicely. Most bikers opt for boots however shoes that are especially made for riding are now also available and becoming popular especially for bikers in tropical climates.

Riding gear serves a double purpose for the avid motorcyclist. Most importantly, it provides needed protection while on the road, but on top of that, it also adds  to the rider's individual style. As you shop for motorcycle gear, be sure to find something providing adequate safety while keeping in mind you choose riding gear that appeals to you since you will be wearing it a lot. Also make sure that whatever you get is comfortable enough where you will actually use it on a regular basis. Don't sacrifice looks for comfort.
