Are you sure your hoody is going to protect you on a 50 mile freeway commute? You sure your thin cotton jacket will offer the insulation you need when the wind is speeding through your bones?

- 1-Step Outside Of Your Comfort Zone
Ever heard this saying? ‘If it’s too comfortable, It’s probably too big’? Well, it is rightly said.
Why can’t I wear a loose helmet? Urgh! This jacket is too tight. Why can’t I wear the loose jacket? Because you are going to ride a motorcycle and you can’t just wear casual clothes which simply cover your body.
You need a fitted torso so you don’t feel cold in windy weather and prevents extra air from swooping in. Your pants shouldn’t be so wide that your knee armor starts swinging. Your gloves shouldn’t be too big at the palms because there’s a possibility that you might get blisters.
- 1-Be Seen Biker gear should be very visible, especially in the rainy days where you have the less visibility because of the darkened skies. Moreover, sometimes it gets foggy so it become very difficult to see ahead.
Your biker gear jacket should have the reflective piping so you can be easily be seen even from afar. Choose the gear which will benefit you and make your life easier.
On July 29, A 74 year’s old rider named Jaque Rasmussen took off from his home in Miltona. He was heading towards Glenwood on his bike.
He had gone less than two miles, when a vehicle hit him at the intersection of country road. Rasmussen quoted: “I hit the front of the car and apparently, I went flying.”
When the first responder of this accident Kyle Grinager, Assistant Chief of the fire department was informed about the accident, he made a scene in his mind.
He thought that it must be a bloody mess but he was shocked to see
that the scene he created in his mind was nothing like that. As he walked up to
Rasmussen to check if he is still breathing, shockingly Rasmussen was just fine.
He told the fire chief that he is alright and un-wounded.
