Riding without the proper protective gear dramatically increases your chances of injury and death in the event of an accident. Here is a quick rundown of safety gear you should wear while riding: Helmet: This is one of the most important pieces of equipment you can wear. Only use helmets that are manufactured specifically for motorcycle use.
