"What's the best motorcycle gear I can buy for protection?" - "How can I stay protected in the summer heat without wearing all that hot riding gear?" - "What type of motorcycle gear would a motorcycle tour guide wear?"
We get questions like these from riders every day, so now we're happy to give answers in the form of a Free Download on our website. Please note that our recommendations are definitely focused on the "adventure riding" or sport touring type of motorcycle travel, and sport bike, motocross, and other styles of riding might not apply. For those interested though, some of the key points explained in the Whitepaper include:
- Padding: Are built-in pads really the best? We think there's a better option than the original pads that come with your motorcycle jacket and pants, and give a full explanation as to why.
- Staying Cool: How can you stay protected with motorcycle gear and cool at the same time? Mid-summer heat might make this seem impossible, but we have an excellent solution.
- Spine/Neck Protection: Only what sits atop your neck might be more important, so let's just say the latest options in neck protection are hugely important in riding safety.
While not every day is spent out guiding motorcycle tours (someone has to write these posts) thousands of miles of experience, multiple crashes, and climates ranging from hot and humid in Ecuador to freezing cold in Patagonia puts in a great position to offer the advice you'll see on the Free Motorcycle Gear Advice Download. Please note: We do not work for or sell products of any of the motorcycle gear manufacturers you'll see listed on the document. In fact, we don't even have "affiliate links" or any form of advertising in place with any of them. This collection of information is just our sincere effort to make sure you RIDE more, longer, and as safely as possible!
