Wearing proper safety gear can and will reduce the amount of scrapes and bruises you’ll get, but the most important safety feature is the helmet. But for your helmet to save your life, it needs to be DOT certified to withstand strong impacts and it needs to be worn correctly. Many riders choose not to wear their helmets correctly and it ends up costing them their lives or mobility, as motorcycle helmets have been proven to reduce the risk of spine injuries as well as brain injuries. Always strap your helmet on the right way and make sure your helmet actually fits snug, because gaps around your head can lead to much worse injuries than a properly fitted and strapped helmet.
There are multiple ways you can keep yourself safe when riding motorcycles. First would be to wear the proper safety gear such as a helmet, gloves, boots, pants and a jacket. These items need to fit properly as well to provide proper protection so don’t go out and buy baggy safety gear that doesn’t fit.
