Motocross Dirt Bike Fun – Right Gear and InsurancePosted: September 26, 2014
When choosing Insurance for your off-road motorcycle, you are providing both you and the bike a safety net just as important as the gear you are wearing. Dirt Bike/Motocross are for off-road fun. These bikes are designed for riding on unpaved ground or rough terrain and are not street legal.
A Helmet– This expense is crucial whether you are on road or off-road with your motorcycle.This your most valuable asset. When choosing a helmet make sure you pick quality, its fits properly and is secure every time you ride.
A Neck Brace– Just as important as the helmet. Your getting bumped and jostled just riding over the terrain. We never want to think we are going to go down, but in the event that this happens, with a neck brace, you have protection from serious injury.
Chest / Back Protector– There are many of these available and use of one is highly recommended as a chest / back protector (also advertised as a “Roost Deflector”) can help dissipate the energy generated in a crash and help protect internal organs and other body parts from impact damage when you end up in a yard sale.
Knee Braces– Excellent piece of protection. Everyone who rides a dirt bike should have Knee Braces. Every time you get on that dirt bike you should be wearing these for the same protection you would give to your head and chest.
Boots– Protect your ankle and foot area, get a pair of good quality boots in place of a standard boot to offer that need protection to your lower leg.
Goggles– Lets face it, your going to be in dirt and mud that slings from other riders when you are competing. Your clear vision can mean a race and your safety. Suggestion: Tear Off goggles that can provide you with the clear vision you need.
Staying Hydrated – is a must and just a critical as the gear you are wearing.
Look into different systems that can carry fluids that are easy to consume.
Always follow the safety rules when riding Motocross/Dirt Bikes and make sure you have the right insurance coverage.
