Safety gear could save your life

Most motorcyclists in Texas know the risks long before they even begin learning to ride a motorcycle. Roads can be busy, traffic moves fast and a motorcyclist does not have the same degree of protection that car or truck drivers might have. With this in mind, it is all too easy for a motorcyclist to fall victim to the carelessness or inattention of another road user. A single slip is all it takes to turn your life upside-down.

Unfortunately it is something that happens all the time. A driver fails to see a motorcycle approaching and clips it, a motorbike's front wheel knocks into debris on the roadway or even a faulty part causes the motorcycle to malfunction, with devastating consequences. Worse still, all too often these accidents result in serious or even permanent injuries. Many motorcyclists involved in crashes of this nature do not even survive.

Sadly, no matter how careful you are, accidents can still happen. The best steps you can take aside from being attentive at all times to the rules of the road and the behavior of those around you, are to ensure that you are adequately protected. Thick bike leathers and a sturdy helmet can go a long way toward protecting you from the worst of your potential injuries.
