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.

Textile Apparel can add Power to your Ride!

If you want to add some power to your ride and feel like a superhero ensure you wear textile apparel.

When looking for premium quality textile clothing look no farther than AME Riders, as we have a large selection of Men’s and Women’s Motorcycle Textile Jackets to choose from in many colors and styles to fit your needs. In a wide array of colors, with or without Certified Armor, with and without venting we have a textile jacket to meet everyone’s needs.

But why wear Textile Clothing? Some textile garments like Motorcycle protective gear are of course by definition made to be highly durable. These pieces of clothing are made out of Kevlar, Cordura, ballistic nylon, which are some very tough fabrics and if layered properly can stop stops bullets and knives. However, when coupled with other pieces of protective motorcycle gear such as carbon fiber knuckles intended to withstand crashes at expressway speeds, and substantial leather boots with oil-resistant anti-slip soles you tend to feel more invincible. It doesn’t stop there though there is much more such as Certified Armor (CE), removable pads, or even plates that can be hidden throughout the fabric of your gear to help protect major and minor parts.

Never fear looking like a freak, if you walk out in public in full riding gear (your riding armor)  it’s socially acceptable, unlike wearing a suit of metal armor, which could get you arrested or taken to the looney bin. It’s designed to look like regular clothing as much as possible, so you leave the house, feeling as safe as possible with hardened knuckles, anti-slip boots, dagger-proof fabric and high-impact pads. Don’t worry about looking silly as long as your protected.

So while you may look like this:

Be safe in riding gear
Always wear protective gear

You will feel like this:

Feel Like You have Power
Feel Like Your Badass

There are many pieces of protective Textile apparel available for both Men and Women such as this Men’s Black and Green Mesh Nylon Motorcycle Jacket or this Women’s Textile Racer Jacket with Multi-Pockets. Both have removable padding or armor, lightweight material, and packed full of other features. Take a look at our other styles and colors of textile apparel at AMERiders, we work to protect you while you ride.

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.

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.
