All About Motorcycle Helmets

ALL ABOUT MO+ORCYCLE HELME+S Most sport-type activities have their own suitable protective gear and equipment. Motorcyding is no exception. Every rider and passenger should wear over-the-ankle footwear, long pants, a long-sleeved jacket, full-fingered motorcycle gloves, and a helmet manufactured to comply with DOT (U.S. Department of Transportation) standards. Why Helmets Helmets work. Helmet effectiveness has been confirmed by scientific studies, while helmet myths - "helmets break necks, block vision and impair hearing" - have been consistently disproved. Safety-conscious riders wear helmets as a sensible, responsible choice every time they ride; we know that you will, too. First, it is the most important protective gear you can wear while riding a motorcycle. Think of it at the Same time you think of your ignition key: Pick up the key; pick up the helmet. They go together. Helmet use is not a "cure-all" for motorcydist safety, but in a crash, a helmet can help protect your brain. your face, and your life. Second, a good helmet makes riding a motorcycle more fun, due to the comfort factor: another truth. It What a Helmet Does for You cuts down on wind noise roaring by your ears on windblast on your face and eyes, and deflects bugs and other objects flying through the air. It even contributes to comfort from changing weather conditions and reduces rider fatigue. Third, wearing a helmet shows that motorcydists are reSponsible people; we take odrselves and motorcydling seriously. Wearing a helmet, no matter what the law says. is a projection of your attitude toward riding. And that attitude is plain to see by other riders and non-riders alike. Replace your helmet if it was involved in a crash; it probably absorbed some impact shock. Some helmet manufacturers will inspect and, when possible, repair a damaged helmet. If you drop your helmet and think it might be damaged, take advantage of this service. Replacing Your Helmet Most helmet manufacturers recommend replacing your helmet every few years. If you notice any signs of damage before then, replace it sooner. Reflectivity: Many states require a specific amount of retro reflective material on a helmet. Thoroughly read the manufacturer's information. Your local motor-vehicle department can give you exact information on the location and number of square inches of retro reflective material required in your state. State Helmet Requirements Helmet Laws: Wearing a helmet properly strapped on your head is mandatory in many stages. But that's a moot point, because as a responsible, safety-minded motorcydist, you'll be wearing your helmet every time, and everywhere, you ride. Source: Compiled by: Helmets And Heroes
