Your choice of riding gear is as important to making motorcycling fun as your choice of motorcycle. The correct motorcycle gear makes motorcycling safer, and comfortable through changing conditions. One day it might be sunny, but the next day it might rain; you catch the drift if you ride. Apparel buying decisions are actually based on more than just trying clothing on. Most riders like me, are looking for the stylish jacket or chaps; however, that stylish jacket or chaps should do much more than just perfectly fit my body.

With a bit of wider thinking the layering on the jacket or chaps should actually increase comfort of your ride. Temperatures will change in a fast pace, from hot to cold, or wise verso. Being cool or comfort? Well usually it depends on riders style, for example me I would pick comfort. I am more about comfort than the style. Sticking to comfort the jacket should have good venting in places where the moving air actually is touching it. So if you are riding behind a windshield your are better off by having the vents on your sleeves.

It is already March, and the months will pass by quickly the warm weather will ride in as the day gets longer. Most of us will be out riding to work on our motorcycle, but safety considerations are most important. As you have noticed I am not a fan of style, but of comfort. So depending on a day I tend to ride with my vest on and a t-shirt under the vest. It keeps me cool, and comfortable enough for moving my hands in any direction. However, I personally don’t recommend it but it a great feeling. Motorcycle gear is made to be comfortable and prevent any fatigue.

Importance of Gloves

Gloves play a big role in motorcycle apparel. Each one of us should have gloves on when riding motorcycle. How many times we have seen bikers not wearing gloves? Probably more then you or I can think of in 10 minutes. Recently, I read a story of a biker which did not end up with a happy ending. Her pride and joy was in a coma right after she was knocked off her bike. She was in comma for couple hours but the scare of not waking up was more horrifying then the crash. The only equipment she did not wear was her gloves, so her hands are scratches, and she thankfully got away with just a broken wrist. She woke up from the comma and now is at home with her family. However, her message to all of us is to wear all appropriate motorcycle gear that is required including the gloves. It is so easy to get knocked off your bike, it only takes one wrong decision, please be responsible and wear your proper riding gear.
