How can you improve motorbike safety? The feeling of oneness with your bike while travelling and riding is unbeatable, and this is the reason behind the immense intimacy of bikers with their motorbikes. Being a motorbike lover, it is not just a vehicle, but an emotion for you. It is an attachment to freedom while you stay confined to the limits of your two wheels.
While the bliss of a ride is limitless, there are dangers associated too. The U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) stated that about 73 bikers per 100,000 face serious injuries during accidents and about 60% minor ones.
These statistics compel the generation and motorbike experts to look for safe measures while riding. With time, many companies and brands have come up with quite impressive gadgets, and the government has often promoted them. The best part about these gadgets are that they don’t make you feel old school beside your bike, they get as cool and sporty as your bike does. Read on to find out more about these gadgets to help with motorbike safety:
1. Equip Yourself With Airbag Helmets
Airbags are good for protecting everything. Be it in cargos, made up of glass or any delicate item. Airbags have a very special place in international trade and marketing. They have also been used for protection in cars, and the latest trend involves them in helmets.
Airbags work by providing an insulation from the damage caused by collision as they absorb all the force. Now, something which is as effective as to protect the most delicate items even in long journeys can definitely be of help in protecting your skull in case of an accident or physical shock. A normal helmet protects from damage, but in some situations, they can intensify the accidents. But these airbag helmets are an exception.
2. Keep Your Journey Inflated With The Tire Inflators
What can be worse than a ride with complaining and moaning tyres? And what if it happens in a remote area with no possible aid around?
Why not adopt the “Prevention is better than cure” policy? Carry a pocket inflator with you wherever you go. As good as carrying yourself on your own shoulders sound, as good inflating your tyres on your own feels.
3. A Safe Motorbike For A Safe Rider: Toolkit
A sound mind resides in a sound body, and a safe biker rides a safe bike. Simple yet important. What are you going to do with all the safety tips and gadgets if your bike is running out of maintenance and smooth machinery. Don’t let a loose fulcrum make you lose your life.
While full-on rugged kits seem fancy, save them for your home. Carry a multi tool kit that will be easy to carry and feasible for your work. Keep your mechanical horse well maintained and equipped, and ride hassle free.
4. Hold Your Grip Tight With Quality Grips
Grips are very easy to install and use on motorbikes. Whatever your reason might be, sweaty hands or a tiring long journey,don’t let it snatch away your grip from you.
All the riding skills, safety, rugged dress up, roads and experiences, none will hold you strong if you don’t hold your grip stronger.
5. Navigate Your Route On A Handleband
A GPS and a map are now a days, ubiquitous and indispensable. Courtesy to Google and other maps, we can have them all handy. But holding a phone in your hand while driving is neither easy nor recommended, as you can get distracted.
Get a handleband for your bike. It will hold your mobile phone taut as you ride through, allowing you to keep a cheque on the route on the digital map. This will allow you to navigate without compromising on safety.
Riding is fun and amazing, but safety is more. Don’t let rush and carelessness influence you. Ride far, ride safe. Have stories to tell, not wounds to show.
