How Can Students Stay Safe on Motorbikes

Some students, when choosing means of transport, go for a motorbike. Yes, it looks cool; yes, you can say to some of your friends, “Hop on! I’ll give you a ride!”. But they usually don’t think about safety. Apart from being an attractive vehicle, a motorbike is also one of the most dangerous ones.

The statistics of motorbike crashes will prove to you that before going on a ride, you should do everything possible to protect yourself. Don’t be ignorant and think that nothing can happen to you. Just remember about Marco Simocelli and many other professional riders who died on the circuit, and follow the next tips we prepared for you. 

Special Safety Course.

Learning how to ride a motorbike is only the beginning. If you want to use it regularly, we recommend you look for and enroll in special safety courses. When you need to improve some of your skills, you go to special courses. When you don’t have enough time, for example, to write an essay, you can pay for essays on

But in the case of a bike, you have to do everything yourself, as your life depends on you. Unpredictable situations can happen often, and you have to be ready and know what to do.

Always Check the Weather Forecast.

Sometimes police and other special services recommend that drivers not use cars because in case of heavy rain or snow, when the road is too slippery, or when there is a hailstorm.

For bikers, these conditions can turn into a real struggle due to the peculiarities of the vehicle. So, if you see that the forecast is bad, it’s better to use a car and postpone the vehicle and choose another day for a ride.

Instead, you can dedicate your time to doing your assignments. You can do everything yourself or use

Special Motorcycle Outfit.

Special motorcycle equipment and gear help you make the ride more comfortable and protect you from possible stones or any other objects that can fly out from the wheels of cars. So, if you want to be protected on the road, you should have a helmet (it should be in accordance with all safety standards), goggles, leather jacket and pants (or it can be a suit), boots, and gloves. 

Don’t Forget to Make an Inspection of Your Vehicle Before the Ride.

When you receive a driving license, the instructors always pay attention to the fact that it’s necessary to check your car before driving somewhere. Considering that a motorbike is less protected than a car, its technical state is even more important. That is why keep in mind to check lights both in front and at the back of the bike, breaks, oil and fuel level, tire pressure, and turn signals. It will take around 5 minutes but will guarantee you a safe ride. 

You Have to Follow the Traffic Rules.

Yes, this tip is Captain Obvious style, but there is nothing more important on the road than fulfilling the rules, especially the speed limit. Many bikers are feeling how powerful their vehicle is and like to show off and exceed the speed limit. It can be dangerous not only for other drivers but for them as well. Just for you to understand, almost half of the bikers’ death crashes are caused by speeding.

You Should be Bisible on the Road.

During the dark period of the day, it is always necessary to wear special accessories to be noticeable; for example, it can be a special vest or any other clothes with reflective stripes. You should always drive with your headlights on, not only when it’s dark but as well when it’s foggy. Try to avoid the blind zones of trucks because sometimes they can’t see even cars, so motorbikes can get lost near this huge truck.

The next thing that you should always keep in mind is that it is necessary to keep a safe distance both in cars and on bikes. Even if your reaction is not very quick, if you keep your distance, it gives you a chance to stop on time. 

You Should Watch the Road Carefully.

You can find lots of “traps” on the road even if you fulfill the traffic rules. When driving a bike, you can lose traction very easily. It can happen due to bumps and potholes, spilled oil, little stones, and sand. When crossing the railway, always do it in the right way and in the right place.

Take a First-Aid Kit With You.

You can never know whether you will need it or not need it or not, but it’s always better to have it, as it can save a life in case of an emergency. It should not contain anything special: disinfecting wipes, band-aids, bandages, hand sanitizer scissors, and some other stuff.

In general, our recommendation will be to ride safely and remember that human life is the most important thing.

Dudes! Are you really asking that? Ok, we et it there are alot of dodgy folks online these days trying to make a quick buck. But now, we have put our heart and soul into Rugged Motorbike Jeans and scamming is the last thing on our mind. We are a small team of bikers, generally adventuring around on our various bikes (supermoto's, adventure, naked street and enduro bikes). If you email us you will generally get our CEO Sam or one of our other support staff who love the motorcycle community and are a part of it wherever we go. Everything is legit as soon as you make an order, it is processed immediately and on the way to you.

Yes & No. We sell a wide range of pants which DO have protective knee and hip pads and are suitable for motorcycle riding AND we also sell biker style jeans and pants which, although are all made of durable tough material are not certified for safety and do not have the protective padding needed in case you do get a little too throttle heavy and lay your bike down (we have all been there and done that!). Please check each product and contact us if you have any questions on this.

Since we offer a wide range from various manufacturers, they all have their own sizing per brand. However there is a sizing chart on each product page, look for the tab just above the description or the size chart link on the right side, or email us and we can recommend the size for you.

PLEASE NOTE : the size charts are taken directly from the manufacturer and the length is incorrect on some, the length is generally a standard length based on the waist size (waist size is correct on all size charts).
