How a motorcyclist dresses can often impact his risk of injuries if he’s involved in an accident. In no season is that risk more pronounced than during the bleak winter months.

A motorcyclist must invest in special winter gear and accessories that reduce his risk of being seriously injured in an accident. In Georgia’s icy weather, a motorcyclist can quickly find himself getting increasingly cold and numb the longer he rides in the biting cold weather. Invest in a few extra pieces of clothing that can keep you warm. These additional pieces of clothing can not only keep you warmer, also reduce your risk of being injured in an accident by providing an extra layer of protection.

Extra layers of insulation can keep you both warm and safe.   Your face and neck region can become very cold while driving in winter. Use a liner under your helmet. This liner can help shield your face by leaving only your eyes exposed so you can see the road. Get a lining in a comfortable material. You can also protect your neck region with a scarf or a neck wrap.  An extra pair of leggings under your motorcycle pants can provide extra insulation and protection for you.

Motorcycling is a lot more fun with friends. Group motorcycling can be an exhilarating experience. However, when you are riding with other motorcyclists, there may be missteps, including miscommunications that could increase the risk of an accident involving one or several members of your group.

The Motorcycle Safety Foundation recommends these safety tips.

Organize your ride beforehand. Chalk out your route, and determine where and how often you’ll be stopping for rest breaks and fuel stops.
