People often ask us, “What is the most important motorcycle gear?” Motorcycle riding, whether you are a beginner or experienced rider, is one of those few things in life that brings joy, excitement, and peace every time you go. However, it carries a lot of risk if you do not always use the proper motorcycle safety gear. In fact, there is a popular saying among seasoned motorcycle riders: “Dress for the slide, not for the ride.”
So the answer to the question: there is no most important motorcycle gear. A helmet, jacket, riding pants, boots, and gloves are all important and need to be worn every time you ride: regardless of weather or distance.
