To Keep Your Head Safe

First and foremost, you need to keep your head protected, as getting hit in this area can have dire consequences (from strong headaches to death). For that reason, it is crucial that you wear a helmet each time you ride your motorcycle. So much so, that you shouldn't even ride at all if you don't have the appropriate headgear to keep you safe. Needless to say, this same principle applies to any passengers that may be riding with you. You should search for a helmet that's strong enough to absorb some of the shock from any impact, but that will allow you to see, listen, and move around without much trouble. If you require some assistance to learn what helmet to get, Bloomberg has a list of the best helmets depending on the type of rider you are.

To Keep Your Hands Safe

You may not think too much about them, but you must definitely get some riding gloves to keep your hands safe as you're on your motorcycle. This is because, aside from keeping you warm during the inclement weather, or protecting your hands from branches, they can also save you if you ever fall, as they will keep your hands from shattering if you put them out to break your fall. The right riding gloves should be leather ones, that have reinforced palms, so you can guarantee your hands will be unharmed if you're ever in a difficult situation.  

To Keep Your Eyes Safe

Your eyes should also be protected as you ride your motorcycle, especially if you consider that it's crucial that you are able to see well when you're cruising around. Unfortunately, when you're riding, your eyes are one of the most exposed organs (not to mentioned, they can be very sensitive). For that reason, if you want to keep your vision from being affected by dust, rain, sunlight, or other elements, you should wear sunglasses to ride around. However, if your helmet already has a shield for your face, then it may be unnecessary for you to add another layer of protection to your eyes.  

To Keep Your Body Safe

Since you're completely exposed to the elements when you ride your motorcycle, your body could get seriously injured if you're ever in an accident. That's why, you should also don gear to keep it protected. For example, a motorcycle jacket won't only look cool, but it can help you prevent scratches, bruises, and even fractures on your arms and core. Long jeans can do the same for your legs. Still, keep in mind that you shouldn't wear loose clothing or pieces that are too big/long, as they could get caught in your motorcycle and result in some disastrous accidents.

To Keep Your Feet Safe

Your feet could also sustain some harm if you don't keep them properly protected. Moreover, the footwear you have on can also affect your driving abilities. That's why, you should consider what type of shoes you wear whenever you're riding. For instance, riding with heels or flip flops on can be a terrible idea, since they could fall off or get caught in the motorcycle, which could lead to a terrible mishap. Instead, you're strongly advised to wear closed-toe shoes that fit you well. Boots or sneakers are a nice option, since they won't interfere with your riding and can keep your ankles and feet safe.

A Few Extras

Last but not least, there's other protective gear that you could consider to remain extra safe and comfortable when you're on your motorcycle. For instance, earplugs can be really helpful if you have sensitive ears, and you want to reduce some of the noise that may come into them because of traffic on the road or the sound of the wind and things as you pass by. If you're very shivery, riding during the colder months can prevent you from being a safe motorcyclist. A balaclava might help you stay warm if the chilly winds are hitting you in the face. Just make sure that it won't get in the way.
