I know I have always emphasized on helmets as the highest protection priority that you must have. That’s true as it will keep your head and neck safe but what about the rest of your body? As a die-hard rider, I have a ritual before going for any riding trip – ATGATT – which stands for all the gear, all the time. When defensive riding fails, your protective body armor will save your life.
I have walked away from a crash with only a bruised ego. My protective gear had enough armor to protect me from the impact and abrasion as I slid to a halt. Armor reduces the severity of pipe burns, chipped elbows, and other lower-body injuries in general.
The riding pants, jacket, boots, gloves, and riding suits are responsible for protecting your skin and bones. All these gear has body armor of some sort commonly made from Kevlar composite abrasion panels or high-density foam. They cover all major and minor joints cushioning your body in the event of an accident.
As a dealer in motorcycle imports, I don’t mind getting any of these body armor from you.
