Best Gear to Stay Safe When Riding Your Motorcycle in Florida

Best Gear to Stay Safe When Riding Your Motorcycle in Florida
If you’re a motorcycle enthusiast in Florida, you need the right gear to stay safe while riding. In this post, we’ll detail the best gear to keep you protected while cruising the Florida highways.
 

How the Right Motorcycle Gear Protects Floridians

 
If you have the unfortunate experience of getting into a injuries at the speed your motorcycle travels even when cruising around town, so protective gear is a must.
 
Even if you don’t break any bones or experience any internal injuries in a fall, your skin could experience severe abrasions that could even expose muscles and bones at high speeds. That’s why it’s essential to wear the best possible gear you can afford.
 
When you’re moving at high speeds and the weather is chilly or wet, you’ll feel cold and uncomfortable without insulated gear. Even during hot temperatures, the right gear can help your body maintain a comfortable temperature.
 

Essential Gear for Safe and Comfortable Florida Riding

 
Helmets are crucial for protecting you against ECE-rated helmet for maximum protection.
 
The right jacket protects your internal organs. Leather jackets are the top choice for many riders and have a long life. However, you can choose from a variety of textile jackets that repel water and protect you from abrasion. Textile jackets tend to be more affordable than leather jackets. Look for a CE rating that indicates quality and safety. The best jackets fit snugly yet allow you a full range of arm motion.
 
Riding pants will protect you against abrasion, unlike regular jeans. These pants are made from leather or textile, often to match the jacket. Some pants zip to attach to the jacket. You’ll need to try on different styles to find a snug fit that is still comfortable.
 
Boots are important for protecting your legs and feet. The best boots for riding are resistant to oil, feature ankle support, and have non-skid soles. Riding boots feature soles that often have a metal plate inside to resist twisting. A solid toe and heel box will also protect your feet from impact. Boots need to be tightly laced above the ankle, or they run the risk of falling off in an accident.
 
Gloves are necessary to protect your hands and wrists while riding. Since your hands instinctively reach out to shield you in a fall, you must cover them to protect them. Riding gloves need a strap around the wrist to keep them from falling off. The best gloves include armor that protects your palms. Test your gloves while sitting on your bike to see if they allow you good range of motion.
 
If you have money for a splurge, consider a suit. It offers you maximum protection from neck to toe while covering regular clothing. You can also find Bluetooth-enabled accessories to listen to music or use your phone while riding.
