Getting ready for a great motorcycle riding experience? Good for you! But have you spent enough time to prepare for your safety on the road? If you are eager to go out and ride a motorcycle, you need to know that dressing up properly before you step on your motorbike is not merely about abiding laws. It’s more on your safety while on the road. Driving my motor bike for a long time with my child, we never dared to leave home without wearing our Hello Kitty motor helmets. The reason is because I don’t want to be part of the plenty of fatal motorcycle related injuries being reported every now and then caused by wrong and incomplete biking outfit.

Dressing Right for Safer Motor Bike Ride
Before you get too excited in hitting the road on your bike, you need to recognize that wearing the right gear is important for your own safety. It is important that you get your own motorcycle riding outfit. This can do so much in shielding you from unexpected incidents during your ride. The following tips will better guide you in choosing the right clothing for the said riding encounter:
- Motor Helmets
Never ride a motor bike without wearing a helmet. This gear will protect your head from life-threatening injuries. Do not forget that a lot of people have reportedly died even in slight accidents because they were so fearless in not wearing their helmets.

- Jacket/ Long Sleeve Tops
Whether it is sunny or rainy, you should wear a jacket when riding a motorcycle. This gear will ensure that your arms are completely protected during a crash. It’s also one way of shielding yourself from the sun when the sun is up.
When choosing the top apparel to wear, you should stay away from wearing flowing or baggy clothes. Tops that are overly loose-fitting should be avoided because they can hamper comfortable driving. The key is to be dressed in a snugly fitting attire when riding on a motor bike.
You need to make sure that your lower extremities (knees, legs, feet) are completely protected in case an accident occurs. Wearing short pants will make your legs and knees uncovered and exposed for scratches during a crash and the heat of the sun even if you are wearing the best quality boots.
- Good quality gloves
Wearing gloves is not for style intentions alone. It‘s a standard technique for excellent handle grip since the hands may sweat. If this happens, the hands have the tendency to slip and make it difficult for you to maneuver the motor bike. During a long drive, wearing gloves will also prevent blisters from forming on your palm.
- Good pair of motorcycle boots
You need to choose the right type of boots. Do not just pay attention to the style or brand but more on the features of this foot gear. Check comfort and protection attributes. Choose a pair that fits exactly in your feet. In doing so, you will be at peace that your feet won’t get hurt while wearing the boots.
The idea is to be dressed for comfort and function whenever thinking of riding a motorcycle. Wearing a snugly-fitted top or jacket, jeans, comfortable boots, gloves and high-quality Hello Kitty motor helmet is a requisite for a safe and sound motorcycle riding experience.
Why Wear Hello Kitty Motor Helmets?
When talking about complete motor biking gear, helmets are first to be considered. Some careless and pretending-to-be daring riders consider this equipment as troublesome to wear. However, it cannot be denied that being a headgear, it provides a great level of protection for one of the most important parts of the body – the head.

You need to wear motor helmets as protection from the following:
- Brain trauma
You know very well that the brain is the most sensitive organ of the body. Even a slight dribble can bring damage that can lead to disabilities especially if the left portion is involved. Imagine how dangerous it can be, if your head bangs and you are not wearing a helmet during the crash. Wearing a helmet would somehow lessen the degree of damage compared to when you aren’t wearing it. A well-designed helmet offers a good deal of protection to the brain during a smash.
- Scalp injury
Although, it is less critical than brain injury, incurring tear or scratches on the scalp can be very painful. Good helmets are made with a cushion layer for comfort and protection to the head including the scalp. This feature also diminishes the magnitude of harm including slits and contusions.
- Scrapes and scratches
There are helmets designed to offer full protection for the head including the face. You don’t want to bear the implications of having a scarred face, right? If you are wearing this helmet type, severity of facial scrapes that may leave dreadful-looking scars can be diminished.
Different Types of Helmets
By now, you have realized the importance of wearing motor helmets for your riding safety. To better guide you in choosing which one to buy, let’s talk about the different types of helmet.
- Full-face helmets
The full face design is the most preferred style today because it provides the most protection during a crash. Why? Well, because it shields the whole head as well as the face from the upshot of an accident. This is the most sought-after design especially for people who are just starting to ride a motorcycle.
Full face helmet type
- Open face helmets
This type of motorcycle head gear intends to keep the face bare and exposed during the ride. It is usually preferred by riders who are more comfortable if their face is not covered as they enjoy driving their motorbikes. Some riders using open face helmets wear sunglasses or goggles to protect their eyes from dust or wind when riding.

- Flip front types
Designed with the front cover that can be turned over, this type of helmet is recommended for those riders who want to take the benefits of both open and full face helmets. When you want to get full face protection, all you have to do is flip down the front of the helmet. Alternatively, you may flick it up to enjoy its open face feature anytime desired.
