The overlooked necessary
For my birthday this year,
I treated myself to a brand-new Suzuki GSX-R. I'd never owned a
street-legal bike before, but after testing
out a friend's GSX-R, I knew I had to buy one. These bikes
just looked so good and so exciting to ride that I couldn't
wait to get my very own!
But I'm also very
big on safety, and will do everything in my power to ensure
that I have only safe rides on my new bike. For example, I took
a weekend safety course for motorcyclists at my local community
college and I practice what I learned when I'm out for a ride.
Most importantly, I bought appropriate motorcycle riding
apparel and make sure I always wear a helmet when I throw a leg over my bike.
Motorcycle riding apparel
is an important component of motorcycle safety that many riders
overlook. I can't tell you how many times I've seen guys (and
gals) on the road in only a t-shirt, shorts, and sandals.
That's a recipe for disaster, in my opinion. Proper motorcycle
riding apparel, such as protective jackets, leather gloves, boots, and maybe even pants, is necessary for protection in the event of an accident. I make sure I wear motorcycle riding apparel whenever I'm on my bike.
In fact, I decided to buy
some motorcycle riding apparel even before I took delivery of my
new GSX-R. I went down to a couple of dealerships in the area
and checked out their selection of motorcycle riding apparel,
but didn't find anything I liked. The stuff they had in stock
wasn't to my taste at all and was pretty expensive. I then got
the idea of searching for motorcycle riding apparel on the
Internet. I didn't know if that would be a cost-effective move
since most gear is heavy and would probably be expensive to
ship. But I decided to give it a try anyway.
I'm glad I did, because I
found some great resources for discount motorcycle riding
apparel online. The prices on these products were very
reasonable, plus the shipping costs weren't nearly as high as I
had feared. In short, I ended up ordering two complete sets of
motorcycle riding apparel and will definitely go back for more
whenever I need something new.
I received my motorcycle
riding apparel well before I picked up that brand-new GSX-R, and was well
equipped when I took it out for the first spin. I know how
much fun motorcycles can be, but I also know that there are
some real dangers involved. That's why I'm not going to take
any unnecessary risks and why I'll always wear protective
motorcycle riding apparel out on the road.
