AmeRiders is back with our 5th installment of our Biker Safety tips we have gathered tips and advice on various aspects of motorcycle riding: about riding corners, braking, looking, safety, etc. This week’s tip is how important it in protecting your feet while riding a motorcycle and the best protective gear to wear for your feet.
Some people think that just hopping on a motorcycle and riding is fun, however, motorcycles can be dangerous if you are not wearing protective gear. Wearing flip flops is a very bad thing to do, even if you are not in a moving state you can still have damage done to your foot and ankle. You 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 burns can happen to 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.
It is important to protect your feet when riding a motorcycle and by wearing leather 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 is very important as you need your feet to ride as much as you need your hands to ride.
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. You don’t have to wear metal Iron Man boots when you ride but make sure they are protective.
