Motorcyclists are among the most vulnerable road users and are often involved in crashes and become casualties. It is important that riders are aware of the risks and that experienced riders don’t become complacent.
In 2018 there were 96 road traffic collisions involving motorcycles. 103 motorcyclists were injured on our roads with 19 of them being seriously hurt.
It’s really important to wear the right clothing when you’re riding a motorbike. Whether you’re riding a moped or a high-performance bike, having a crash can be extremely serious – but having the right equipment will help to protect you.
Protective clothing can do more than protect your skin, though. A back protector will cushion your spine against impacts, helping prevent debilitating spinal injuries. Sturdy boots will protect your ankles from being broken if they are twisted under the bike, and if they come with shin protection that is even better because if you go over the handlebars you are likely to hit your shins on them, which can shatter the bones.
Leather gloves will protect your hands and long trousers will protect your legs. A reflective vest will make you more visible to other road users.
