May is Motorcycle Safety Awareness Month and we’re here to give you a few tips and reminders for motorcycle drives to practice safety while on the road.
Arguably one of the most important pieces of safety gear for your ride is a helmet. They are strong, lightweight, and can be custom fitted so you can ride in comfort and ease. While there are several different helmet companies, there are primarily three versions of helmets: half helmets, three-quarter helmets, and full-face helmets. A full-face helmet that is approved by the Department of Transportation is typically the best choice for riders to ensure maximum coverage. Department of Transportation approved helmets can be identified by a DOT certification stickers located on the back neckline of the helmet.
Whether you’ve just recently become a rider or you’re a seasoned rider, we can all agree that helmets save lives. Be safe, be seen! And that’s the bottom line.
