Motorcycles are fun to ride, but they also have many dangers associated with them. That is why protective gear is so important. When you take a motorcycle on the road with cars and trucks, you really have to drive smart and drive defensively. Proper protective gear can be stylish like an Scorpion exo-500 helmet. Helmets, steel toed boots/shoes and leathers are a good way to protect yourself when you ride your motorcycle. Of course the most important thing is paying attention to the road and the drivers around you. Remember, if you are on a motorcycle large trucks may not be able to see you, so be aware of your surroundings.
