Before you take your bike out on the road, make sure you have the right safety gear.  Here are five tips to help make your travels safer.

1: Wear a helmet. Uncovered, your head is completely vulnerable in a crash. Don’t take chances, get a good helmet and wear it every time you ride.

2: A good pair of gloves can protect your hands from gravel and rocks, and also absorb vibrations to make for a more comfortable riding experience.

3: Boots give you better grip while you ride, help to absorb shock and protect you from engine heat or from injury in a crash.

4: Wear a pair of goggles to keep dirt; gravel and sun glare out of your eyes so you can focus on the road.

5: Always wear long pants and long sleeves to protect you against gravel, road debris and the sun.
