Valentine’s Gift Ideas to Help Convince a Woman to Ride a Motorcycle

So you love motorcycles, and you love the girl, but she’s kind of meh about motorcycles, or maybe you think all those stupid memes dudes post on the holidays throughout the year are true and she hates them and you have to do everything you can to hide and lie about your two-wheeled life. We have come up with a better approach for giving your lady gifts, and because Valentine’s is just around the corner we came up with Valentine’s Gift Ideas to Help Convince a Woman to Ride a Motorcycle.

If you’re reading AMERiders I’m willing to bet you’re pretty cool. And I’m willing to bet that if you’re into her she’s pretty cool. So, she might be open to changing her opinion. The trick is how you go about making that change You could try yelling: “You just don’t get it! Motorcycles are more important than anything in life – including you!”  But there are other ways around this dilemma.

The Forward Approach

Gift IdeasThis is the bold move, as you run the risk of failing to get her something she might truly be more interested in or be happier with, to get her something that might disappoint. Read the room here dudes; if she keeps dropping hints to you about a contouring palette from Sephora, maybe don’t show up with a Bright Silver Ladies motorcycle helmet instead. In that case, check a little further down in the article for ideas that work for most ladies, even if they aren’t motorcycles – yet. Or, you just get her the sparkly Anastasia highlighter kit she wants, but put it INSIDE the helmet! Boom! Or even find her a sparkly helmet too.

 

Talk to her on the ride, so she feels more confident

Get a pair of Sena Bluetooth communicators and set one up in her helmet. If you are able to talk to her on the ride you can do nice things like give her a “heads up” about a move you’re going to make. You can pull a Huell Howser (possibly an obscure reference for people who didn’t grow up in Los Angeles), and be a tour guide, or just point out beautiful vistas to her. You could even serenade her as you carve the canyons to really ramp up the romance.

Give her the gift of protection

Gift IdeasFor her hands a another of our gift ideas is, Our Full Finger Women’s Gloves With Faux Fur are made from top quality leather and feature white faux fur inside of the glove to give that extra added bit of warmth in the winter. These gloves not only work nicely when riding in autumn but they also can make her look stylish and keep her warmer around town as well with the faux fur lining.

Boots she can wear every day and on special occasions

Gift Ideas

Women love boots I should know I am one. We love our boots Winter and summer. They are often a fashionable part of the outfit we are wearing. I have at least 5 pairs of boots at home and 2 of them I use for riding. Women’s 6-inch black biker boot is built for comfort, durability, and traction control. Extra heavy duty traction sole for added protection and style.

This boot has good-year welt construction with top quality full grain oiled leather, a lace-up design with buckle strap, and YKK zipperGift IdeasThey are a fashionable, with a classic design, and can be worn with jeans or even shorts. One of my other pairs I wear I get compliments from stylists and fashionistas. It’s a Women’s 10″ Side Pocket Boot Black.  I also ride around town in them and love the high ankle coverage of both boots, as well as the grip the soles gives me. The first pair has a small heel makes this boot a pretty sassy part of any outfit for sure, but and doesn’t hurt your feet. I often stand in them all day. That doesn’t mean you get out of giving foot rubs, though, because you want to stay in this relationship right??

The sexy little black motorcycle jacket

Gift IdeasThis Women’s Leather Jacket completely passes as a fashion jacket with or without the pads inside. The perfect black leather jacket is a necessary part of every cool lady’s wardrobe and this one does not disappoint. It is also a technically designed motorcycle jacket with features a Zip-Out lining that runs through the sleeves.

It also features air-vents on the sleeves and back of the jacket, small ventilation holes on the underarm area, padding through the sleeve and back for extra protection, a snap down collar, gathering at the waist and zippered cuffs for ultimate fitting. I showed this to some of my friends who don’t ride and it received a 100-percent approval rating for gift ideas from ladies who rock a variety of looks.

Not all ladies are the same of course…

I actually happen to have a lot of lady friends who don’t ride their own motorcycles but often ride pillion, so I did some real investigative journalism here. I’ve tried my best to make it This Gift Ideas list universal, but, still, it’s possible this list may or may not work for you. In which case, you’re on your own. Good luck.

Preparing for That Awesome Spring Motorcycle Ride That Is Rounding the Corner

AMERiders are here to help you in Preparing for That Awesome Spring Motorcycle Ride that Is quickly Rounding the Corner and gaining on us. For some of you that may have already happened, as you may live in a warmer climate such as Florida like our Website manager does. As Spring rounds the corner it means one thing for bikers: time to hit the road with wheels burning! First things first before you take that first Spring Motorcycle Ride make sure your gear is ready. Don’t worry getting your gear ready for spring is not as difficult as you may think, however, it does take a bit of checking and searching.  Then you will be out in the wind having fun. Here are a few tips that AMERiders thinks will help get you ready.

Check your helmet!
Spring Motorcycle Ride
DOT Full Face Skull Pile Motorcycle Helmet

If your (lid, brain bucket, or whatever you call your helmet) is older than 5 years, replacing it is something you might want to consider doing. The Snell Foundation and most of the helmet manufacturers will tell you that glues, resins and other materials that are used in manufacturing a helmet can break down over time. Things like hair oils, body fluids, and cosmetics, as well as normal “wear and tear” can all be contributors to this breakdown. Plus, every five years there are great advances in materials, designs, production methods and the standards that go into making and manufacturing helmets.

You may have heard some of your brothers and sisters say….”I heard that if a helmet hits the ground, it should be replaced.” This old biker’s tale isn’t necessarily true, but it isn’t really false either and it can get expensive. If you dropped your helmet on the garage floor don’t break out your wallet yet. You don’t necessarily need to replace it. Look at the manufacturer’s specs. If it says to replace it, follow instructions.

However, a common practice with today’s helmet technology is that if it’s not visibly cracked after it’s been dropped, then you don’t need to replace it. The problem with that is that is that you can’t see what is on the inside. The best thing to do is to go to your nearest dealership that you trust and have them inspect it. What we mean by you trust, is that you trust to check it and not say oh you need a new one just cause they want the money to sell you a new one.

Gloves – the unsung hero of apparel.
Spring Motorcycle Ride
Long Leather Summer Motorcycle Glove

Your hands are just as important as you are, you know this as of you don’t have your hands you can’t ride the bike. Gloves are so much more than “something bikers wear to look the part.” In spring, finding the right motorcycle gloves to start your season are important. The type of glove is important whether Summer or winter gloves will depend on how chilly your Spring actually is in your area of the world.

Spring Motorcycle Ride
Stitched Eagle On Women’s Motorcycle Gloves

When Spring rolls around and the temp goes up, it may be time to consider summer gloves. And therein lies a different choice. Do you go fingerless gloves or Kevlar-filled safety gloves? Riding can be a challenge in blistering heat, under the hot melting sun. Wearing gloves during warm-weather riding is important for hand protection, and to keep cool and comfortable, choose the right gloves for the season.

Riding Pants or Chaps
Spring Motorcycle Ride
Women’s Leather Chaps With Pink Stripes

The battle lines are drawn. More often than not Americans will don chaps, however,  European and Japanese motorcycle fans seem to wear full riding pants. Is that the only difference? If you throw your leg over a Triumph cafe bike, do you have to only wear leather riding pants? Or if you’re on a Road King, is your only option chaps?

Spring Motorcycle Ride
Textile Motorcycle Pants

No, course it isn’t it’s your bike it is your choice in what you wear on your legs. When Spring hits, it may be a bit chilly so you’ll naturally have gear. But as the weather warms, you might be inclined to shed the layers. There’s no law against not wearing chaps or pants, but keeping safety and of course comfort in mind. Chaps and riding pants are definitely a safety choice when it comes to riding.

What about the Bike
Spring Motorcycle Ride
PVC Throw-over Motorcycle Saddlebag

You can’t forget your bike either is it geared up and ready to go for short or long rides? Some of us like to take those short rides but still, they may be longer than our usual run around town so we need to make sure that our Bike is geared up as well. Things like sissy bar bags, windshield bags, toolbar bags, and saddlebags are important things to help us get ready to ride.

Don’t forget though those long hauls we like to make which call for motorcycle luggage or if your just riding around town don’t forget you can use a backpack as well.

Last but certainly not least
Spring Motorcycle Ride
Women’s Biker Boot Black

Boots! Your feet are what help you hold the bike up. They need to have good soles and great tread and needs to at least be waterproof as well as come up over your ankles in case the bike does go over they help to keep your ankles from being totally crushed.

The Bottom Line

As spring blossoms, your gear will help keep you warm and safe. Be sure to prepare for changing climates as well as finding your personal style. AMERiders has plenty of all of the above available for you here. Questions that you do need to ask yourself before you set out on your ride. Do your gloves need to be replaced? How is the tread on your boots? How old is your helmet and how many times has it been dropped? Think about these things and more before you set out on your ride.

12 Days of Christmas and It’s Origin and Meaning!

We at AMERiders are in the spirit of giving! We would like to thank everyone that has helped us, and this is our thank you for helping AMERiders being what it is today. For the next 12 days, we would like to offer up the meaning behind the 12 days of Christmas Song. (one verse for each day).This came to us because the boss loves it and just loves to drive us nuts singing it. Yes, we’ve done the research and we know this starts on the 25th of December, but however you know that we at AMERIders are not normal so we are going to start this the 12 days before Christmas.  We apologize if what follows offends anyone it is not our intention just information that we found online.

Before we go into a song that is stemmed in controversy of what the meaning behind the song actually is we would like to remind you of our Winter Holiday Event, Don’t forget that you get 20% percent off on orders over $50 automatically. With our usual Free Shipping on orders over $50 as well.

On to the meaning behind the beloved song.

The 12 Days of Christmas” is an English Christmas carol that enumerates in the manner of a cumulative song a series of increasingly grand gifts given on each of the twelve days of Christmas (the twelve days after Christmas). The song, published in England in 1780 without music as a chant or rhyme, is thought to be French in origin. However, there are ideas that think this may not be so. It is a cumulative song, meaning that each verse is built on top of the previous verses. There are twelve verses, each describing a gift given by “my true love” on one of the twelve days of Christmas. There are many variations in the lyrics depending on where you are in the world and have been changed slightly down through the years.

The exact origins and the meaning of the song are unknown, but it is highly probable that it originated from a children’s memory and forfeit game.

The best known English version was first printed in English in 1780 in a little book intended for children, Mirth without Mischief, as a Twelfth Night “memories-and-forfeits” game, in which a leader recited a verse, each of the players repeated the verse, the leader added another verse, and so on until one of the players made a mistake, with the player who erred having to pay a penalty, such as offering up a kiss or a sweet. One hundred years later, Lady Gomme, a collector of folktales and rhymes, described how it used to be played every Twelfth Day night before eating mince pies and twelfth cake.

Husk, writing in 1864, stated:

This piece is found on broadsides printed at Newcastle at various periods during the last hundred and fifty years. On one of these sheets, nearly a century old, it is entitled “An Old English Carol,” but it can scarcely be said to fall within that description of composition, being rather fitted for use in playing the game of “Forfeits,” to which purpose it was commonly applied in the metropolis upwards of forty years since. The practice was for one person in the company to recite the first three lines; a second, the four following; and so on; the person who failed in repeating her portion correctly being subjected to some trifling forfeit.

Variations of the lyrics

The earliest known version of the lyrics was published under the title “The Twelve Days of Christmas sung at King Pepin’s Ball”, as part of a 1780 children’s book, Mirth without Mischief. Subsequent versions have shown considerable variation:

-In the earliest versions, the word “On” is not present at the beginning of each verse—for example, the first verse begins simply “The first day of Christmas”. “On” was added in Austin’s 1909 version, and became very popular thereafter.

-In the early versions, “my true love sent” me the gifts. However, a 20th-century variant has “my true love gave to me”; this wording has become particularly common in North America.

-The 1780 version has “four colly birds”—”colly” being a regional English expression for “black”. This wording must have been opaque to many even in the 19th century: “canary birds”, “colored birds”, “curly birds”, and “Corley birds” are found in its place. Frederic Austin’s 1909 version, which introduced the now-standard melody, also altered the fourth day’s gift to four “calling” birds, and this variant has become the most popular, although “colly” is still found.

-The “five gold rings” may become “five golden rings”, especially in North America. In the standard melody, this change enables singers to fit one syllable per musical note.

-The gifts associated with the final four days are often reordered. For example, the pipers may be on the ninth day rather than the eleventh.

Other origins

In England, between 1558 and 1829, it was not legal for Catholics to practice their kind of Christianity in public or private. Being a Catholic was treated as a bad crime. If you even owned a Catholic Bible, you could be put in prison! Catholics were stopped from worshipping because King Henry VIII fell out with the Catholic Church and started his own ‘Protestant’ Church (what is now the Church of England). There were many people who were still Catholics and they worshiped in secret.

‘The Twelve Days of Christmas’ was written in England at the beginning of this time. Some people think that it was written to help children learn about their Catholic religion. In the carol, the days are supposed to represent special symbols and have hidden meanings, because it was illegal to have anything in writing that would indicate that you were a Catholic.

But there’s NO evidence that this is true and it seems most likely just to be a folk song and that the special ‘Catholic’ meanings were added at a MUCH later date!

Song verse explanation.

Also, all the symbols can be used by Protestants and other Christians, not just by Catholics! There was another song called ‘A New Dial’ (also called ‘In Those Twelve Days’), which goes back as far as at least 1625, which gave religious meanings to the 12 Days of Christmas, but NOT so people could practice their faith is secret. If you’d like to know more about this, please go to the 12 Days of Christmas page on snopes.com

12 days of Christmas
Partridge in a Pear tree

The ‘partridge in a pear tree‘ means God. (In ‘The Twelve Days of Christmas’, it can also mean Jesus who died on the cross. In ancient times a partridge was often used as a mythological symbol of a divine, sacred king. Partridges weren’t introduced into England, from France, until the 1770s, which also points to any extra meanings being added later!)

The 12 Days each traditionally celebrate a feast day for a saint and/or have different celebrations: Day 1 (25th December): Christmas Day – celebrating the Birth of Jesus

Simple Motorcycle Tips to Save Your Life, and the Life of Your Passenger

Safety is important and AMERiders wants to give you these Simple Motorcycle Tips to Save Your Life, and the Life of Your Passenger. When riding either by yourself or with a passenger it is always important to always stay alert and know what is going on. However, there are other simple motorcycle tips that can help ensure yours and your passenger’s safety. We offer these to you just in case the unthinkable happens and you (in the words of so many car drivers) “just come out of nowhere”, and can help to avoid serious issues or at least save you and your passenger from a few broken bones. An experienced rider will see some of these as obvious but it’s always worth reminding yourself of the dangers out there.

Wear Your Gear

This should be a no-brainer, however, it’s not just about wearing the gear; it’s about wearing the right gear all the time. This is what you need and some reasons why you need it. We sell all types of safety gear so check the links in each section to get your new piece or set of gear.

Helmet
 simple motorcycle tips
DOT Full Face Skull Pile Motorcycle Helmet

helmet that conforms to safety standards (DOT/SNELL) is what you want protecting your head, not something bought second hand at all. It is important to note that, many helmets lose their protective integrity after one impact. Helmets can be expensive, but it’s better to be safe than sorry. Buy new and always wear your own, as you may not know the history of the helmet. A good helmet is a key element of yours and your passenger’s safety.

Jacket and Trouser
 simple motorcycle tips
Jacket and Trousers can save your skin

There are many different kinds of jacket and trouser  gear out there; some riders wear leather, but some prefer Kevlar. Regardless of what you choose always remember, your skin can only survive a slide so far before muscle tissue and bone start to show. It may sound horrible but a quick Google search can show you the damage no gear can cause unprotected skin!

Gloves
simple motorcycle tips
Stitched Eagle On Women’s Motorcycle Gloves

When in a fall (crash or even just dropping your bike) your hands always instinctively reach out to break your fall. If you’re not wearing good gloves, your hands are going to suffer for it. Gloves are often forgotten; even if you’re wearing the rest of the gear – don’t forget your gloves. Skinned hands take forever to heal. Not only that they make everyday tasks a complete nightmare. Walking away from a crash may seem like a win but having to get someone else to help undo your zipper for the bathroom isn’t fun.

Boots
simple motorcycle tips
Women’s 10″ Side Pocket Boot Black

Everyone has seen the images of riders riding bike scooters and small dirt bikes with flip-flops on; now search for the images of when things don’t go to plan. We have all heard the horror stories and that should be reason enough not to do it. The long and short of it is, you’re riding a large engine on two-wheels with little space between your feet and the floor. Durable, sturdy, thick boots are always recommended. You want something that can protect your ankles, and feet as well as stop a bike from squashing them and survive a slide along the floor. Most importantly stay on if you do crash.

Using Your Eyes is paramount
simple motorcycle tips
Keep your eyes open and scanning all the time

We all know that you need to look where you want to go.  Scan for potholes and other hazards and be aware of the traffic. You should also assume that every other vehicle on the road is driven by a moron and above all don’t assume they know what they are doing. How many times have you seen the unbelievable first-hand? How often have you thought ‘they’re definitely not going to attempt that…No way, they’re actually doing it’? Surprisingly it happens so often that the answer is yes.

These Bobster Sunglasses are great for protecting your peepers

It’s important to keep your eyes open; use your mirrors, over-shoulder checks and above all keep an eye on the traffic too. Look around and analyze every potential hazard; your mind should do this automatically as you ride but it’s always good to keep your eyes out for danger.  This is especially important when a passenger is riding with you. Don’t forget to wear a great pair of glasses to help protect your peepers if you are not wearing a full face or visor on your helmet.

Avoid Debris in the road and in your path
simple motorcycle tips
If you can’t avoid debris, make sure you approach slowly, with your bike upright.

If your eyes are open, you should be able to avoid any sand, gravel or other debris that may be lying across the road. When riding with one or more other bikes, it’s just polite to point it out to whoever is behind you, So that they can make preparations to tackle it or avoid it. If you can not avoid the debris, make sure you approach it slowly, with your bike upright. Off-road tires can handle the debris but still keep the bike upright.  If you’re armed with road tires, make sure that you cross the patch slowly, don’t aggressively brake or accelerate while you’re going over it.
If you’re in a corner and don’t have time to get upright before entering then you’re more than likely going to take a tumble. You were going too fast in the first place or didn’t look far enough ahead and consider the danger. It has been known to happen.

Smart braking is important
simple motorcycle tips
Braking too hard can cause accidents

One of the most important of our simple motorcycle tips is smart braking. Braking too rapidly can cause an accident, however,so can braking too slowly. To prevent slow braking, ensure that your brakes are in tip-top condition and adjusted to the way you like them. You should also be aware of the state of your tires too. Make sure they have the correct amount of tread of them, cause a tire blow our or bad tread can also cause serious accidents.

Braking rapidly can be because you’re too close to a hazard. Always leave as much room as possible between yourself and the vehicle in front of you. Consider your braking routine as weight distribution rather than slowing down; some riders say they never use the front brake first while others swear by it. Using the front brake does shift all of your weight to the front of the bike but you can counter any potential lock up by applying the back brake, smoothening out your weight distribution.

When riding with a passenger you should expect that as you slow the motorcycle to a stop, this will be the time the passenger moves around or makes adjustments. This will challenge your slow speed control, skills and help you master them! Practice your braking as often as you can with and without a passenger. Knowing how to brake appropriately in any situation could save both your lives!

Educate Yourself

When thinking of simple motorcycle tips this one stood out most. All of the skills you need to improve your riding can be learned on an advanced riding course. These courses are designed to help you re-learn the basics, lose bad habits and take your riding to the next level. It’s interesting to go and try the new testing requirements and you may be surprised to find gaps in your knowledge. By taking a course or booking time with an instructor, you can fill in all the blanks and re-acquaint yourself with the rules of the road. You might think it’s a waste of time now but you’ll feel differently afterward!

It is also very important to know how to ride with a passenger as well, we will cover more on this in our next post. We should also make note that taking an advanced rider course can lower the cost of your insurance.

Last words for thought
simple motorcycle tips
Braking with a passenger is different than by yourself

Some last few quick simple motorcycle tips for thought. When riding with a passenger ensure that your gear shifts are smooth to the point of the passenger not even sensing the shift has occurred. If their helmet is knocking into the back of yours, you’re not smooth enough yet. Smoothness in your stopping and starting is important. When you move off from a stop aim for such smoothness that the passenger is not quite sure that you have started to move. This goes the same for a stop,  smoothness all around.

Also, the extra weight of your passenger will increase the stopping power of your rear brake. You’ll need greater clutch finesse and more throttle when starting from a stop. If your passenger is heavy, it will take longer to turn, slow down, or speed up on your motorcycle. Avoid traveling at extreme speeds.

We hope that these simple motorcycle tips have helped you to adapt your riding and maybe even given you something to think about that you don’t already do.

And as always….

This blog post is geared towards the basics of what you need to look for in a quality motorcycle jacket. We will go over the important aspects that apply to both leather and textile jacket such as sizing, pockets, basic construction, collars, cuffs, and closures. We will handle liners as a separate subject for another post.

Sizing:

Quality Motorcycle Jackets should  fit a bit loose, as there are times you’ll want to put on thicker or heavier clothes under them. The amount of protection a jacket will give you is also relevant to how well it stays put when coming in contact with a road surface. The best solution to this problem is to purchase a jacket with any type of adjustability in the waist area, like a belt or zippers, and if possible, “gaiters” on the sleeves — that allow you to tighten them against your arms.

If you intend to use body armor – which we recommend. Quality Motorcycle Jackets needs to have some kind of adjusters for keeping the jacket sleeves in place in the event of an accident.

Regarding Jackets with body armor:

Adjustability is even more important, as the belts and gaiters will ensure that your armor is still covering your vital parts even after the shock of any initial impact.

The waistband of Quality Motorcycle Jackets should be adjustable, and not just by elastic, but many different types of adjusters.
The waistband of Quality Motorcycle Jackets should be adjustable, and not just by elastic, but many different types of adjusters.

For example, when you are trying on the jacket in a store, the sleeves should come down to about the second set of knuckles on your hand. if not a bit farther when your arms are at your sides. This is because when you’re riding, your hands and arms are out in front of you. You’ll want the sleeves to end at your wrists so they can either cover the ends of your gloves or vice-versa. Also, the back of the jacket should extend about three or four inches below your belt line as to not expose your lower back. It should also be loose-fitting between your shoulder blades so that the material across your upper back won’t be stretched tight, making it difficult for you to move your arms.

It is best to remember:

A jacket that looks like a perfect fit when you are standing in front of a mirror is probably a very poor choice as a riding jacket. Ensure you try it on standing, as well as sitting on the bike as you would riding and moving around. If you’re not restricted by the jacket in any way then it is a good fitting jacket.

Quality Motorcycle Jackets should have many pockets but they must be useful.
Quality Motorcycle Jackets should have many pockets but they must be useful.

Pockets:

AMERiders believes that you can never have too many pockets when riding on a motorcycle. However, these pockets should have certain standards that they must meet to be useful. This is the difference between fashion and riding gear. First, each exterior pockets need to have a closure of some kind. Snaps and Velcro fasteners are okay, but you’ll fair better with heavy-duty zippers. And if possible, try to make sure that the zipper pulls are large enough that you can grip and operate them with your gloves on.

Secondly, make sure at least one of the pocket is weatherproof/ waterproof, whether on the exterior or interior of the jacket. This is for keeping things dry that could be ruined if they got wet. We believe that two side pockets, one breast pocket, and one interior pocket should be a minimum requirement. A good riding jacket will even add pockets on the sleeves for easy access to things like change for toll booths.

Basic construction:

By this, we mean how the jacket is put together. Though it is sometimes difficult to determine how well-constructed a jacket is by just its appearance. We have gathered some easy identifiers to help you. What type of thread is used? Quality Motorcycle Jackets use nylon or Kevlar thread, double-stitched, with a single or double overlap on the material, and a seam-sealing strip of material on the inner side

Collars come in a variety of sizes, styles and shapes, and you will have to decide for yourself which is best for Quality Motorcycle Jackets that you purchase.
Collars come in a variety of sizes, styles and shapes, and you will have to decide for yourself which is best for Quality Motorcycle Jackets that you purchase.

Collars:

Some people hardly think to look at the collar when searching for a new riding jacket, but trust us, this is very important. Regardless of the style or shape, the collar takes, ensure the part that actually makes contacts with your neck is lined with a soft material. Most Quality Motorcycle Jackets will have a special lining around this area, made from suede or microfiber. Remember, when we ride we tend to move our heads a lot, and the last thing we need is to rub the skin raw on your neck .Collars come in a variety of sizes, styles and shapes, and you will have to decide for yourself which is best for you.

Cuffs of Quality Motorcycle Jackets should be adjustable
A cuff should have a zippered adjuster, with an internal gusset, but notice that the edging is not lined. Unless your gloves fit under it, this cuff will rub your wrist raw when riding for a long period of time.

Cuffs:

Cuffs, like collars, should have a soft lining in the wrist area. If you are riding in a short-sleeved shirt, the cuffs will rub your wrists every time you clutch, brake or use the throttle, which will irritate your skin quickly. It’s of paramount importance that the cuffs of your jacket be adjustable, whether with Velcro, zippers, or snaps. As at times, you may want them to be snug down under your gloves. In other situations, you may want them to secure over the top of them. Regardless, you certainly don’t want them acting like miniature air scoops unless it is a very hot day.

Quality Motorcycle Jackets should have multiple closures
Quality Motorcycle Jackets should have multiple closures

Closures:

As with many of the other features, we’ve discussed, the closures on a riding jacket are both different and much more important than those found on normal, everyday jackets. A simple, exposed zipper down the front is quite common and efficient on an everyday jacket, but a disaster on riding gear.

The difference with good riding gear is that the primary closure (the zipper) will be covered by a secondary closure. This is usually a single or double overlap, secured by snaps or Velcro. This helps to keep the wind and rain out of the zipper – but really aren’t much good over the long haul, or in severe weather.

We hope that this information will help you to find Quality Motorcycle Jackets that fit you perfectly for summer and winter as there are jackets made for both types of wear.

We at AMERiders want to wish you and your family a safe and Happy 4th of July!

The Great Debate Leather vs Textile! Which is better?

There has been a great debate going around for 30 plus years now on the topic of Leather vs Textile and which is better to wear while riding your motorcycle. AMERiders takes an in-depth look at the two materials to help you make your decision. Used to be, leather outperformed textile by a very wide margin in most all categories tested. Today, however, that isn’t the case. With all the new advances in the quality and construction of various textile fabrics, textile gear now has many qualities not only as good as, but in some cases far superior to, leather gear.

Leather vs Textile which are you?
Leather Gear

A well-manufactured textile jacket will often be superior to a low-end leather one, on the other hand, a high-end leather jacket will more often than not be superior to a low-end textile jacket. Whether you decide on leather or textiles isn’t really the question anymore. Instead, you need to know the difference between various grades of leather jackets, and between various grades of textile jackets. This is important to know when choosing your side of the fence with the Leather vs Textile debate.

Starting off with leather gear.
Leather vs Textile what is your choice?
Men’s Scooter Jacket With Zip-out Lining

Quality leather products begin with the leather itself. High-quality products are made from large pieces of leather that are graded for blemishes, thickness and uniformity of grain. Virtually all leather has blemishes. To what degree and quantity of blemishes help to determine what type of product it will be used for and for how much.

Most deer and elk hides are called “naked leather”  and are not treated with any sealant product which smooths and hides blemishes. Hence, products made with naked leather are much more supple and expensive as well.  “Protected hides” are leathers that have combined the best facets of natural leather, yet utilizing tannery technology to create a product that is more consistent in appearance. They are also sealed to prevent staining from water and other liquids, so products made with protected hides have easier maintenance than others.

It is also important when buying leather to know what quality you are buying. However, the grading system used for this purpose is very misleading, such as… 

“Top Grain Leather”

The most confusing term used in the industry is “top grain.” It is a total contradiction in terms, because it implies exactly what it is not. “Top grain” is the term that is used when the grain is not genuine! This is when the real grain was sanded away to remove or hide imperfections, and an imitation grain was stamped into the leather.

“Full Grain Leather”

Just as the grain, texture and markings of wood should reveal the nature of the tree from which it came, leather should display the natural markings and grain characteristics of the animal from which it was taken. The best leathers are clear, clean, and supple.

Leather vs Textile which will you choose
It is important to know the difference between good and bad leather gear

So when buying leather ensure that you check the type of grain if it  is called “full grain” or “full top grain,” then it is true leather. However, if it says simply “top grain,” this is actually an inferior product don’t be fooled by inferior products.  It is difficult to judge leather by a photo, as it really helps if you can feel it. However, just looking at a jacket you can tell that superior jackets grain and coloring are uniform throughout, and that the material is supple, as it easily folds and drapes. It would probably feel soft, and almost sensual to the touch. In which, an inferior jacket has varying grains and colors from section to section, possible lousy and mismatched dye job and will feel stiff as a board.

Looking at and going over each of these points can help you choose your side of the fence with the Leather vs Textile debate, or maybe you want to have one of both types of gear.

Now we will move on to textile gear.
Leather vs Textile which will you choose?
Textile Gear

Nowadays, there are multiple synthetic materials used in constructing motorcycle gear. Here is a short list of some common materials and some of the terminology associated with them, with definitions of each this is not a complete list there is lots more.

Breathability: Humans control their body warmth by perspiring and thus preventing their bodies from overheating. When you’re riding, it is necessary to transport at least two pints of perspiration (water vapor) through your clothes every hour.

CE Armor: “CE” is a European system of grading motorcycle protective armor that encompasses both energy absorption capability as well as pad shape and size. The armor or pads are designed to offer added protection to a rider going down with a motorcycle, particularly when sliding or facing lesser impacts. CE armor is made of hard foam pieces encapsulated in softer foam that compresses on impact. If your jacket has body armor in it (and it really should), insist on CE-approved armor.

Gore-Tex: Is a thin, lightweight membrane mounted between the face fabric and the lining that is waterproof, windproof and breathable. Gore-Tex was the original membrane of this type, and it totally revolutionized the motorcycle gear market with its use in jackets, suits, pants, gloves, boots, etc.

PVC (Polyvinyl Chloride): Nylon alone is not waterproof. In rain suit and waterproof garment descriptions, you will notice the acronym PVC. This is a rubberized coating that is laminated to the nylon to make it waterproof.

In conclusion
Leather vs Textile what is your choice?
http://www.ameriders.co/wp-content/uploads/2016/06/Womens-Mesh-Racer-Jacket.jpg

We probably have you pretty well confused by now and wondering, “How in the H. E. double hockey sticks do I choose good textile riding gear or leather riding gear?” The best we can tell you is to look for a reputable manufacturer that uses a practical combination of the above items. Still, there are other manufacturers that make very good textile and leather jackets or suits that don’t cost an arm and a leg to purchase. Just look for the materials suggested in this article, and pay attention to how it is constructed as well.

Selecting the Proper Women’s Motorcycle Riding Gear

Some women riders of the world in correlation to men worry more about how riding gear may look on them, although they all look for function some look not only for function but style as well. Ladies can feel overwhelmed with the amount of Women’s Motorcycle Riding Gear choices that are available to them nowadays, and selecting the proper riding gear for either men or women can be difficult. There are many companies that produce gear just for women as the fit for a woman is critical, not just for style but for performance as well.

Motorcycle Helmets are important
Ladies Blossom Helmet MC5

With ladies, the main thing to do when Selecting the Proper Women’s Motorcycle Riding Gear is to ensure that it is made by a well-known company. They gear may look cute but if the material is of sub-quality then it will not offer the protection required while riding.

You want to be covered from head-to-toe if at all possible because any skin exposed can be removed in a crash which can lead to infection. Make sure your helmet fits snuggly but not that it hurts your head, search for the best one and not for the graphic that looks good to you. Even if it is your dream helmet if it doesn’t fit properly it is not a good helmet and will not give you protection.

SOUTH_DAKOTA_47188When trying on a helmet shake your head from side to side, if the helmet slides around it is too big. Always wear your hair the way you’re going to wear it when wearing your helmet during helmet fittings. An article from Motosport.com tells how to properly measure your head for buying a helmet. Here is a snippet from it.

“Measuring for which motorcycle helmet size will fit is actually as simple as looking for a good hat. The difference is in how the helmet will fit over the rider’s head. The best tool for this is the soft vinyl or fiberglass seamstress or tailor’s tape measure. It is flexible enough to wrap around the rider’s skull and is marked in useful increments for determining an accurate size. Use it to find which size of helmet will suit you:

  • Wrap the measuring tape around the fullest part of the head – this will be just above the ears and about a half-inch above the eyebrows for most – and take the measurement at the forehead. To get the most accurate measure, have a friend help with this step.
  • Take the number found above and go to the size chart for the motorcycle helmet being viewed and find the helmet size which includes this dimension in its sizing information. Each manufacturer has sizing which is specific to its own models, so only rely on the size chart produced for the motorcycle helmet being considered.

LJ238-11Once measuring has been accomplished, and the size charts scanned for the appropriate motorcycle helmet size to be purchased, the next part is ensuring that the helmet lives up to its shape and size designations. There is always some variance, even between different models from the same manufacturer, in how a motorcycle helmet actually fits on the rider’s head. Thus, a fitting is often necessary.”

Also, remember that if you are wearing an open face or half helmet, etc. then you should wear protective eyewear such goggles or sunglasses to protect your eyes not only from the sun but from dust, the wind and other particles.

On to Jackets and pants/chaps the decision between leather or textile is up to the wearer ,however,  leather weighs more and isn’t waterproof, whereas textile is (made from a variety of durable and abrasion resistant materials) is lighter (sometimes bulkier) and water-resistant or even waterproof.

Women's Motorcycle Riding Gear
Women’s Leather Chaps With Pink Stripes

Quality Women’s Motorcycle Riding Gear is designed to fit comfortably while your riding on a bike. CE-Approved armor is a great thing to look for as it helps to absorb energy in a crash as well as protect impact points such as the elbows, shoulders, back, knees and hips. During warm weather/climates, venting should be important, but on the other side with cold weather/climates, the ability to layer is important as well.

The preference of textile over pants or chaps is what works for the wearer. When ordering online such as from us at AMERiders check sizing charts and get a tape measure to help you out.

Women's Motorcycle Riding Gear
Stitched Eagle On Women’s Motorcycle Gloves

Your hands are very important to protect (see our previous article here on hand protection) so protecting them with gloves is very important, because if your hands are injured you can’t ride your bike, write, type, or do other things with your hands that you love to do. You must depend on others to do it for you. Think of having to get help to unbutton your jeans to go to the little biker gals room… Wear your glove ladies… keep them protected.

Women's Motorcycle Riding Gear
WOMENS BIKER BOOTS WITH EAGLE AT ANKLE

Boots, like gloves and your helmet, are 1 of the other important parts of your gear. Even if you just drop your bike standing still you can injure an ankle if not wearing boots that will help protect you from injury. Boots can help to protect from burns, sprains, and other ankle injuries when a bike is dropped or in a crash, as well as provide traction for taking off and stops. (our boot selection is in limited stock so get yours here now before they are all gone.)

Let us leave you with this last parting thought choosing gear that fits correctly is important , you want it to fit so as it is not distracting while you ride, plus seeing a lady fidgeting with her gear while she rides is not lady-like and is also distracting to other riders… Plus it means your not paying attention to the road but to your clothing more.

Protect Yourself! Dress for the Slide Not the Ride!

It is important to Protect Yourself when riding on a motorcycle, most of us have heard the saying “Dress for the Slide Not the Ride“, and this saying holds true. When you dress for what is going to happen not for what you are doing, you are more prepared for the eventuality of what might happen even if it never comes. Protect YourselfLike the person that always uses an umbrella even though it is not raining, they are protected from the sun, but if that eventual rain pour comes they are ready for it.  Preparation, as well as Protection, is important and we at AMERiders thought about that when we set up our website as we wanted our customers not only to be happy and satisfied but well protected as well.

Ladies Biker Gear, Why Should You Think is a Good Idea!

Ladies Biker Gear, why should you think is a good idea to wear it? Not just you the reader, but everyone that reads this blog should.  As wearing  just a t-shirt, jeans or shorts and flip flops or tennis shoes while riding a motorcycle can spell disaster for the rider. WHY? Because asphalt hurts and can tear you up from head to toe! Plus if the crash doesn’t kill you then other things from the crash might let us elaborate on this.

Ladies Biker Gear
Ladies Blossom Helmet MC5

When riding it is best to wear Gear from head to toe, such as helmet, jacket, gloves, boots, and chaps. Why? Because each and every one of these particular pieces of gear will help protect their particular body part, at least in some manner.  AMERiders.com we carry each of these pieces and more to help keep you and your passengers protected while you ride.

As we have previously stated in one of our Biker Safety Tips ”

Jeans will help some but won’t necessarily help keep from having road rash, but they will keep your legs from getting too badly burnt on a pipe from your bike.

WOMEN LEATHER CHAPS WITH STUDS

Most people do not realize that a crash can cause you to lose up to 1mm of flesh for every 1 mile per hour you are going over, 30 miles per hour. So think about that if you are hit in a 55 mile per hour crash you can lose up to an inch of flesh. 70-80 and that is down to the bone which can cause fatal bone infections if the impact didn’t kill you. This is where a jacket and chaps will come in handy, to lower the chance of road rash and those nasty infections.

WOMENS BIKER BOOTS WITH EAGLE AT ANKLE

Boots help not only to keep your feet from getting too badly mangled in a crash but also help to give better traction in stopping or even taking off on a bike.

FULL FINGER MOTORCYCLE GLOVES WITH VELCRO NO LINING

Gloves will help you as we stated in a previous post 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.

It is always important to wear Eyewear as your eyes help you to scan the road for debris, dangers to you and others, and to help you see the road.
