Clothing & Equipment
If it does all go wrong proper motorcycle clothing and a correctly fitted helmet gives the rider the best chance of the least injury. Although recent studies show that over 90% of motorcyclists involved in an accident wore helmets, 9.1% of these helmets came off at some time during the accident, due to improper fastening or helmet damage.
The same study found that appropriate clothing reduced, but not completely eliminated injuries to the upper and lower extremities. So it essential to wear the correct protective clothing and equipment.
If it all goes wrong your safety helmet and proper motorcycle clothing gives the rider the best chance of the least injury and all the experts advise motorcyclists to buy the best they can afford.
