Perhaps you are a new rider looking to buy your new riding gear. Or maybe you are an experienced rider looking for something different. Either way, it is important to wear the appropriate attire to keep you safe on the roadways. Some of the gear you should consider is:
- DOT approved helmet. This will be the most important purchase you make in regards to your riding attire. A DOT approved helmet meets all the requirements set forth by the Department of Transportation.
- Leathers. Wearing leather will not only keep you warm but also prevent road rash if ever you are in a Wisconsin bike wreck. Also consider purchasing leathers that have padding sewn in, giving extra protection.
- Boots. A good pair of riding boots protects your feet from the hot motor. Boots will also keep your feet protected from any of the moving parts, as well as the ground.
- Colors. Wear a bright colored vest such as yellow or orange. This will make you more visible to other vehicles on the road.
Wearing protective gear while riding well help keep you safer, but not completely safe. Riding can be dangerous, especially in high traffic areas where other vehicles can cause you to wreck.
