Explanation: Protective Clothing to Ride a Motorcycle

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. 

Whenever you ride your motorcycle, you should be wearing all the right gear, all the time. 

Even when the weather is hot, you should be riding in a full jacket and pants. 

Fortunately, modern motorcycle jackets are designed to keep you cool and prevent dehydration, while providing protection in the event of a crash. 

If you live and ride somewhere with wildly drastic temperature changes, it may be wise to purchase warm and cold weather riding gear. Each will be better designed for certain temperatures, while keeping you protected. 

Don’t take the risk of riding without the proper gear.
