♪”Bird, bird, bird, b-bird’s the word, A-well-a, bird, bird, bird, the bird is the wordA-Well-A, Bird, Bird, Bird, Your Comfort Is the Word.”♪ You are probably cursing me right now and I don’t blame you. I will take credit for helping stick that silly little song in your head, but that is because it got stuck in mine by an old Family Guy episode I ran across (see below). But never fear, AMERiders will tell you why we think “comfort” is the “word”.
All Motorcycle Apparel/Gear stores whether online or walk-in harp protection and with good reason when you ride a motorcycle it is good to be protected in case of fall, crash, and inclement weather. But very few talk about the comfort consistently.
Comfort over Protection
Don’t ever put one over the other these should always be on equal footing. You do not want to sacrifice comfort to ensure you have protective gear. On the other hand, you don’t want to sacrifice the safety of your protective gear for comfort either. Finding the perfect riding gear that has both is important. Such as Our Men’s Green And Black Mesh And Nylon Motorcycle Jacket that is a comfortable and safe jacket for riding in as it has many safety features including its CE armor and reflective striping. It has removable foam based Certified Armor and is made from a lightweight material and has many other comfort features as well.
Comfort will help keep you alive
Wait, did you just said it would help keep me alive? Yes, that is exactly what we said. If you are uncomfortable in your gear. For example, it’s bunching, extremely hot, heavy and keeps you from paying attention to the road consistently, then you may not notice the car next to you is coming over into your lane and they don’t see you. This is when you need to be paying attention and not tugging, adjusting and moving your gear around. We have all been a victim of tight, loose, and uncomfortable gear. Making sure it fits and is comfortable can help you keep an eye on the road and your surroundings and possibly help save your life and that of your passenger if you have one.
Leather is a bikers fashion statement
Leather may sometimes seem like a fashion statement, but quality leathers are an important first layer of defense between rider and road. Mainly, Leather doesn’t “grab” like other materials, so a rider wearing leathers in an accident may be more likely to slide, instead of tumbling head over heel, an advantage which can greatly reduce the chance of serious injuries. However, leather can be heavy and hot there are some leathers that are made to be light but when buying these ensure that it is leather and not “pleather or PVC”. Our Women’s Light Weight Motorcycle Jacket is one example of this. It is a Lightweight high-quality leather jacket cut to complement the female figure, heavy duty stitching, soft leather, and sleek collar make this jacket simple and sweet.
Comfort, for your feet, is very important
Having comfortable feet is very important because they are the base for riding. You have to put your feet down when riding to stop, idle, and help keep you balanced. Boots are a very important part of your protective gear and as such should definitely be on your comfort radar. This helps with not only the material but how it is comfortable as well.
The best boots protect both your feet and your legs. While the majority of boots are made of leather, the best boots are also reinforced in critical areas—shin, ankle, and calf—with a stronger material like Kevlar. Often called “ankle armor,” these reinforcements can protect you from flying debris while you’re moving and can actually protect you from leg injuries in a crash.
Comfort in your boots
Choosing comfortable boots is vital. Boots that fit properly are snug enough to stay on if you wreck, but loose enough to allow proper circulation. Quality boots also help your feet stay dry and cool. Look for water-proof or water-resistant materials, as well as a ventilation system that lets your feet breathe.
