Explanation: Protective Footwear for Motorcyclists

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. 

The proper motorcycle riding gear should cover you from head to toe. 

Proper footwear is an important part of your riding outfit. 

You shouldn’t just wear any pair of shoes when riding a motorcycle. 

Good footwear for motorcyclists should:

  • Be high and sturdy to cover and support your ankles. 
  • Have durable, slip-resistant soles.
  • Have short heels that will not catch on rough surfaces or parts of your bike. 
  • Have secured laces that won’t catch on your motorcycle. 

Be sure to wear the proper footwear every time you get on your bike. 

Never wear flip-flops or any type of footwear that doesn’t provide you with adequate support and protection.
