Explanation: Motorcycle Riding Gear

In order to pass your motorcycle permit exams and to become a safe rider, it’s important to know why a particular answer on the motorcycle written test is correct. 

It is important to wear the right gear every time you ride a motorcycle. 

The right gear is designed to protect you in a crash and reduce your risk of serious injury or death. 

The key pieces of riding gear include:

  • A DOT-compliant helmet. 
  • Face and eye protection. 
  • Protective jacket.
  • Protective pants. 
  • Motorcycle boots or shoes. 
  • Motorcycle gloves. 

While ear plugs won’t protect you from injury in a crash, they can help protect you from hearing damage caused by long-term exposure to wind noise while riding. 

Your gear should fit snugly, allow comfortable operation of your motorcycle, and be made of material that will protect your body in a crash. 

You can find more information about this topic in the motorcycle rider’s handbook.
