Biker Safety Tip 1: Its All in the Hands…Gloves Are Important
Why we ladies should wear gloves when riding with our men or driving our own bikes.
Regardless of whether you are riding your own bike or just relaxing behind your man on a great ride on a sunny day, it is important to always wear your gloves. Gloves are important and should never be an option when riding, one of the first things that can hit the ground when a crash or a bike drop happens is your hands. It is the same whenever you trip and fall walking you instinctively put your hands out to protect yourself or even to keep yourself from falling. It is a reflex, however when this reflex happens on a bike and your hands are not covered they can get pretty torn up. Lacerations to palms, fingertips and fingers will occur regardless of how fast the bike was going.
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. So ensuring that your hands are protected by a pair of leather gloves even fingerless ones (which some guys prefer) is important.
Gloves are very important, you can also think of it this way… Anyone that is military or that has a military background will know if you are injured in the leg, of course, you can’t stand but you can still shoot your weapon. Arms and hands that are injured can possibly impair you from firing said weapon, essentially becoming combat ineffective.
There are other things to consider as well as to why gloves are important if you injure your hands. These depend on the severity of your injury as well)
- you won’t be riding your bike till they heal and that could be a while (can you say bike withdrawal?)
- Using the bathroom won’t be done by yourself and if so could be messy.
- Eating without help isn’t easy
- And using a keyboard or mouse won’t be an option for most either so if you’re in the IT business you would definitely be out of work for a while.
So if you want to not feel helpless or embarrassed wear a pair of gloves while riding, this includes everyone, not just us ladies.
