Top 5 Motorcycle Accessories You Need To Have Before Riding

November 16, 2021 | by Devote Digital

Riding a motorcycle is a unique and exhilarating experience. However, it is also inherently dangerous. That is why you need to equip yourself with the right motorcycle accessories and gear. A good set of gear will not only keep you comfortable throughout the ride in different conditions but also protect you in the case of a crash. The good news is, AMA Warehouse has a wide range of safety gear and accessories available to you. Here are the 5 must-have motorcycle accessories you need for your next ride:

 

Motorcycle helmet

A motorcycle helmet is the most important piece of equipment a rider should have. Make sure to buy a motorcycle helmet that can protect your head from the collision of a crash. That said, a full-face helmet offers the most coverage and protection compared to other helmet types. Motorcycle helmet's price can varies depending on a number of things including the construction of the helmet and the features it may offer. You should always factor in that your motorcycle helmet is the most important part of your motorcycle gear, so try to go for a good quality helmet that fits you perfectly, you'll thank yourself for it in the long run.

 

Motorcycle jackets and gloves

Motorcycle jackets are about more than just looking good. Jackets add another layer of protection whilst riding and are very effective at reducing injuries in crashes.

Motorcycle jackets are typically made of leather and textile. When looking for a motorcycle jacket, consider what type of riding you will be doing and what climate you are riding in, a textile jacket will offer superior ventilation but a leather jacket will offer a higher level of protection and durability.

Gloves, on the other hand, provide excellent hand protection for riders. Not only are motorcycle gloves useful in protecting against debris and in the case of a potential crash, they also offer additional wrist protection for the everyday commute. Gloves that are water-resistant, comfortable to wear and provide full protection on a wide range of motion, are your best choice. 

 

Eye protection

A full-face helmet offers full protection for your face and eyes. But if your riding off-road and using an off-road helmet you will need to consider a set of goggles. This will protect your eyes from dust, and debris that can cause your eyes discomfort whilst riding, a good set of goggles can also offer protection from any rocks or dirt that are thrown up from a rider in front.

 

Motorcycle boots

Motorcycle boots provide you with the proper foot and ankle support as well as protection against potential impacts. One important rule when buying motorcycle boots is to ensure they are sturdy and have over the ankle protection so they won't easily fly off in an accident. Consider what type of riding you are doing and what boot may be best suited to you. 

 

Motorcycle pants

Look for motorcycle pants that are right for you, if you are wanting something with some style, consider the Kevlar jeans, these offer great comfort and style and also give you an added layer of protection in case of a get off. Kevlar is the brand name for a type of para-aramid fibres that provide high tenacity in a lightweight and versatile way. If you are going to be going on some longer riders for a couple of days or more, check out the range of waterproof textile pants, these will offer great protection from the elements that you might come across, if you are looking to hit the mountains on the weekend or looking at taking up some track days, you will need to look at the range of leather pants.
