To improve motorcycle safety many developed countries mandate the wearing of protective clothing by motorcyclists, especially a helmet. Other protective gear may include certain types of jackets, gloves, boots, and pants. Jackets meant for motorcyclists are typically made of nylon, leather, or Kevlar. These jackets typically include heavy padding on the elbow, spine, and shoulder regions. Gloves are generally made of leather or Kevlar and some include carbon fiber knuckle protection. Boots, especially those for sport riding, include reinforcement and plastic caps on the ankle and toe areas. A well-protected motorcyclist will wear boots with heels that fit on motorcycle pegs and provide good ankle support. Pants are usually leather, nylon, or Kevlar. Except for helmets, none of these items are required by law in any state in the U.S. but are recommended by many of those who ride.

Trail bike riders wear a range of plastic armour to protect against injury from falling off, hitting other riders and bikes, debris kicked up from the rear wheel of leading bikes, and from running into track barriers protecting the public. This armour protects the extremities from breakage and dislocation and the back and chest from strain and broken bones. Although fairly efficient, it is of course not always completely effective. Many riders wear “roost protectors” designed specifically to protect against painful debris from other bikes, but are of no use in a fall or collision.

Uraian artikel di atas tentu mengacu pada kondisi ideal saat berkendara. Kita yang terbiasa berkendara hanya dengan menarik gas dan tidak jatuh sepertinya

1.Helm —> piranti kepala yang sekarang hanya menjadi pemanis dan kadang disepelekan manfaatnya. Jangan pernah menggunakan helm cetok sekalipun karena sama saja tanpa melindungi kepala. Gunakan helm berkualitas. Jangan menunggu sampai mendapatkan luka di kepala !!

2.Jaket —> piranti penahan angin yang idealnya dipergunakan untuk melindungi tubuh baik dari angin yang datang dari depan ataupun benturan-benturan yang mungkin terjadi. Bicara ideal tentu akan sulit untuk benar-benar dikenakan di jalan raya Jakarta kecuali bro bertarung di lintasan balap. Jaket dengan protektor yang mumpuni saat ini hanya dikenakan oleh sebagian orang yang benar-benar concern dengan safety tp itu juga tidak berarti mereka lepas dari bahaya kecelakaan. Kita yang tidak mampu melindungi diri dengan porsi ideal, silahkan memenuhi ketentuan keselamatan dengan memaksimalkan fungsi jaket dengan mengenakan jaket berbahan nilon, kulit atau kevlar. Bahan-bahan tersebut terbukti mampu mengurangi luka akibat gesekan maupun terpaan angin yang akan mempengaruhi kesehatan berkendara.
