Wearing Motorcycle safety gear is one of the smartest and most responsible things you can do as an owner and passenger of a motorcycle. It helps to protect the part of the body that it is covering. Everyone knows or knows someone that has been injured or died in a motorcycle accident at some point in their lives. We at AME Riders want to help ensure that our customers have knowledge of Motorcycle Safety which is why we post these tips for you and your passengers.

What should I wear? Helmets, Boots, Jackets, Gloves, Jeans, Chaps, and Boots or a combination of these is suggested. The main and most important is Helmet, Boots, Jacket, Jeans, and Gloves. These will protect your extremities. The helmet is the most important as it will protect your head which can keep from causing brain damage. Jeans will help some but won’t necessarily help keep from having road rash, but they will keep your legs from getting too badly burnt on a pipe from your bike.

Most people do not realize that a crash can cause you to lose up to 1mm of flesh for every 1 mile per hour you are going over, 30 miles per hour. So think about that if you are hit in a 55 mile per hour crash you can lose up to an inch of flesh. 70-80 and that is down to the bone which can cause fatal bone infections if the impact didn’t kill you. This is where a jacket and chaps will come in handy, to lower the chance of road rash and those nasty infections.

Boots help not only to keep your feet from getting too badly mangled in a crash but also help to give better traction in stopping or even taking off on a bike.

Gloves will help you as we stated in a previous post your hands are delicate, and fragile even, and anyone that has either broken, burned or had something happen to a hand knows that not being able to use that hand until it heals really sucks.

Remember it is not that you don’t see them, they may not always see you.
Learning some of these general riding guidelines may help save your life and
the life of your passenger as well.

Biker Safety Tip 2: Let it Rain, Motorcycle safety in the Rain

AME Riders loves to ensure that our customers ride safely that is why we are here with Biker Safety Tip 2: Let it Rain, Motorcycle safety in the Rain, to help you ride safer in the rain.

Most bikers hate to get caught or even ride in the rain regardless of how hard it is raining, as we all know some drivers of vehicles get a bit stupid when it starts to rain. Rain is nothing but water so what is to be afraid of unless it is raining extremely hard or falling horizontally then it is time to be a lot more cautious than usual when riding. But other than that when riding if you are wearing the proper rain gear, there is nothing to worry about.

1 PIECE RAIN SUIT GEAR RS2200

When Riding if you wear a suit with reflective striping or is Hi-Vis then there you are able to be seen easier by another vehicle, which can cause less chance of an accident.  Also, a Rain suit will help keep your clothes dry and your body from becoming wet which can be very uncomfortable. Which everyone knows regardless of whether you ride or not can be distracting from whatever you’re doing, and a biker should not be distracted when riding a motorcycle, that is dangerous. Some weather can make you cold and often worse. So, make sure your rain gear is waterproof some of them are not, which defeats the purpose of being rain gear.  AMERiders.com has many rain suits to choose from in our rain gear section.

Another piece of gear to use that will help is boot covers, this particular type of gear comes in different styles but basically does the same thing all around. They have a thick rubber sole on the bottom for extra traction and durability for riding or walking. Elastic ankle straps with snaps to keep snug in motion. Not only that they keep your feet dry as well. AMERiders.com has a few boot covers to choose from in our rain gear section.

The other tips are just plain common sense in riding in the rain:

  • use correct tires for riding in the rain don’t use slick tires on a wet road
  • watch for rainbows on the ground, they don’t mean they are spots to dig for gold, it means they are slick with oil and avoid them
  • Take on Railway crossings straight as possible. the railway tracks are metal, and wet metal is slippery.
  • Brake gently, not hard. If you need to urgently apply your brakes, pump them so that you do not start aquaplaning
  • Rise slower than normal. When it rains it is just smart to reduce your speed during the rain, and there are good reasons for it.
  • Spray something like Rain-X on the visor to help you with your visibility. Since we don’t have wipers on our helmets (well, maybe some might.) Rain-X keeps the rain from the visor.
  • Puddles are not as fun to ride through on a bike as they are on a cage since the water hides the surface. The puddle could, in fact, be a 3-feet deep hole. Don’t find out the hard way? Be wary as you just don’t know what you are riding into.

These are just a few small Motorcycle safety tips there are many more that will keep you safe while riding in the rain.
