AMERiders is for protection first and foremost which is why we suggest you Protect Your Moveable Parts While Riding Your Motorcycle With Protective Gear. What do we mean by moveable parts? Those would be your hands and feet. These are some of the most important parts to a rider. If something happens to their hands or feet it takes a while to get back to riding status again. So, here are some tips and our suggestions from our stock of gear that may help keep you protected while riding.
It’s all in the Hands!
We have said it before in an article previously that gloves are important! They 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’s the same whenever you trip and fall walking you instinctively put your hands out to protect yourself, or to keep yourself from falling. It’s a reflex, however, when this reflex happens while riding and your hands are not covered they will most likely be torn up. Lacerations to palms, fingertips, and fingers will occur no matter how fast you were going.
Why were gloves?
Hands are delicate and fragile, anyone that has either broken, burned or had something happen to a hand knows, not being able to use a hand until it heals is no fun. So, ensuring your hands are protected by a pair of leather or textile gloves either full or fingerless (which some guys prefer) is important. For great protection try out our Full Finger Motorcycle Riding Gloves
they are made from genuine leather with gel pads and Velcro straps for better comfort.
What are other reasons to wear gloves?
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
- 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.

Why is it important to protect your feet?
Your feet are your foundation, they help you we have seen people in all kinds of footwear from flip-flops, and tennis shoes to flats and high heels. How can they get any traction in this type of footwear? Motorcycles can be dangerous if you are not the correct footwear.
Wearing flip flops or tennis shoes is a very bad thing to do, even if you are not in a moving state damage can still occur to your foot and ankle. Your foot may slip and your bike can fall on your foot and ankle thereby spraining it or even breaking it, and depending on how big your bike is, may burn your feet and legs as well. When the bike is moving it can be even worse as the skin can be torn from the foot showing the bone. We don’t like to be this graphic but it can happen and we have seen it happen.
Helpful information about riding your bike with boots.
It is important to protect your feet when riding a motorcycle and by wearing boots, it will help you to do this. Leather Motorcycle Boots can help prevent slippage in rain, sleet, snow, and oil as well. Boots can help prevent breaks and burns while riding if a bike is dropped. Protecting Your Feet with Motorcycle boots either leather or textile is very important as you need your feet to ride as much as you need your hands to ride.
Such as our Women’s 10″ Side Pocket Boot Black which are the most technologically advanced biker boots emphasizing durability, long-term wear, and protection while being environmentally friendly. Plus they have a cute useable pocket on the side.
So when you ride, don’t forget to don your riding boots, boots don’t always look like motorcycle boots anymore they have been made to look like cowboy boots, tennis shoes and more so find the boots to fit your style. The main thing is to be comfortable and to protect your feet while riding. The boot is important for your Moveable parts to keep them safe and comfortable.
