Keep Safe on Your Ducati Motorcycle With Personal Protective Equipment Marie Coles

A motorcycle is probably the funnest ways to travel its fast, thrilling, exciting and adrenaline pumping. Great for the adventurer in you! The Ducati is famed for its thrills you only have to watch Yes Man ,with Jim Carrey speeding along on his Ducati, to see why the Ducati is a poplar motorcycle among many speed lovers. However, like any motorcycle you have to keep safe by taking a few precautionary measures, including Personal Protective Equipment (PPE).

Personal Protective Equipment is vital to dampening effects of any road accidents you may have, helping you feel comfortable in a variety of weather conditions and enabling visibility on the road. It is as you can see vital to your comfort and safety. Not wearing this equipment could not only mean you are uncomfortable but you have a risk of permanent and extreme damage if you have an accident.

So with a Ducati, you will need the highest safety gear available for motorcycles out there. Ducatis are very powerful machines, so you need the personal protective equipment to fit the machine and keep you safe.

For a motorcycle jacket, you will need the heavy duty jackets that will provide the most protection. These are usually made of very heavy leather or Kevlar, so that hopefully damage is minimal. Choosing a light to medium jacket will increase the risk of you getting hurt by nearly 20%, making a heavy jacket the better and safest option. The same goes for trousers and gloves; the heavier the better as the more likely they are to protect you from damage such as motorcycle friction burns in the event of an accident.

With a Ducati motorcycle or any other motorcycle, it is vital that you reform from wearing trainers as these will not offer you as much protection as the motorcycle boot. Motorcycle boots offer nearly 100% protection, whilst a trainer offers you about as half as much. So okay, a trainer is better than no shoe but they are still a liability on the road.

Other PPE you will need are motorcycle helmets, goggles or a visor, which must be up to your countrys standards and always kept clean and scratch to avoid deterioration of equipment (cannot see or stops protecting you).

A Ducati is a powerfully built motorcycle, making it strong, agile and powerful, thus it is vital to wear the most durable and heaviest protective gear.
