Cover Your Legs

Long-distance motorcyclists should invest in two important items for safety and protection before they set out on their trip: a helmet and motorcycle chaps. Helmets protect one’s brain from being injured in a fall while chaps can protect lower extremities from injuries in some cases.

Moderate accidents, for example, being tossed off the bike at a slow speed, can cause road rash or minor lacerations and contusions but with chaps on any injury is much less severe.

Motorcyclists wear leather because leather is a flexible, strong material able to protect human skin that is not as sturdy or impervious to injury as animal hide. Chaps can keep you warm at the same time.
