Choosing the right gear that fits the type of your machine and your riding style may sometimes become a challenging task. It’s easy to get intimidated by the abundance of choices offered by the market. You cannot always wear your street clothes when riding a bike, because it may restrict your movements, be too thin to have abrasion protection, and so on. You need special types of pants, boots, a riding jacket, gloves, and protection to be sure that you are protected on the road.
