At AMERiders we are all about that Epic Ride each summer, and ensuring that you are geared up and safe is our number one priority. So, before you rev up gear up with protective riding gear, for motorcycle riding. As you can tell this is an addition and add on to our last blog post about helmets which we said we would elaborate more on the head to toe aspect of Protective Motorcycle Gear. Before Revving up there are questions you need to ask yourself.
Questions to ask yourself before riding this summer
Is your Jacket fitting the way it should, is it loose or too tight, or is it showing signs of wear?
If the answer to this question is a yes, then you need to be looking for a new jacket for riding. Most of us have two jackets for riding with anyway, one for summer and one for winter. Our winter one usually is a bit bigger so we can have our thicker clothing on underneath it. However, our summer one is usually lighter and cooler and fits a bit closer than our winter one would.
When a jacket is too loose then it will move and not protect as it should, if it is too tight then it is distracting and can cause a distraction. This can lead to laying your bike down which is never fun. Also, if your jacket is starting to signs of wear and there is a crash then it may not protect you as it should. It may shred when sliding across the asphalt giving no protection to that area at all.
At AMERiders we have a large selection of Jackets for Men, Women, and Children to choose from like this Women’s Leather Jacket With Zip Out Lining features Zip-Out lining and multi pockets. The classic style collar gives this jacket the fashionable look, plus a ton more features and is a great selection of one of our many Protective Riding Gear items in stock.
Another question to ask is about your chaps and riding pants.
The same questions you are asked about jackets can be asked about your pants and chaps. However, if chaps are too tight on the thigh it can cause you to lose circulation while you are riding. It will also make them uncomfortable if you “layer up”. You should be able to slide your hand under the top of the chap while sitting down. If Chaps are too loose they may move or shift making removing some of the protection from the area they are exposing. If the pants are worn as with a jacket they will shred and remove protection from the area they are exposed.
If Chaps are too loose they may move or shift making removing some of the protection from the area they are exposing. If the pants are worn as with a jacket they will shred and remove protection from the area they are exposing.
When having your measurements done for fittings for your chaps remember this. Ensure your measurements are taken while wearing riding clothes and boots. Plus always ensure your measurements are taken snuggly but not tight. And allow one inch for expansion.
For Instance, these stylish Cream Dreamcatcher Women’s Chaps titled the ‘Dreamcatcher’ due to the Native American dream catcher design. Have bone, beads, fringes, and the leather is made from top-quality ivory colored leather to give it its final stylish look.
These are gorgeous chaps to be riding your motorcycle in, and a great choice for Protective Riding Gear. Again this is just one selection that can be made of our many pairs of chaps and riding pants we have in stock at AMERiders.
