February 8, 2008, Newsletter Issue #13: Common Motorcycle Accessories

Tip of the Week

Motorcycle accessories are just as important to the well-being and comfort of a rider as is the bike that he or she rides. Having proper motorcycle accessories can mean the difference between a miserable experience on a bike and one that is fun and enjoyable. One common motorcycle accessory is a pair of harness boots, which are thick leather boots designed to protect a biker's feet while riding. Biker's may also wear other leather clothing, including a leather jacket and chaps, which help protect the rider against road debris and any accidents which may occur. Another motorcycle accessory that is mandatory is a helmet, either a full face helmet or a half helmet, which covers just the top of the head. Choosing to wear a helmet can literally be a choice to live instead of die, since the damage from accidents that happen with bikers can be mitigated with a proper helmet. Finally, having a good pair of saddle bags is very helpful if you want to carry any personal items with you when you ride. Motorcycle saddlebags bear a close resemblance to traditional saddle bags that went on horses, and can be used to carry a variety of items. All in all, having the proper motorcycle accessories is an important part of riding, and they should be carefully and thoughtfully selected.
