Motorcycle Gear

Motorcycle accidents can be deadly.  45 percent of motorcycle fatalities occur without any other vehicle involved.  It doesn't matter if you're experienced or not, driving a motorcycle can be dangerous.

Whether you lose control or are involved in an accident your protective gear could help save your life.  A local Lufkin bike owner says you have to be properly covered. "When I'm on my bike I always wear my helmet, my jacket and my gloves, just for the extra protection," Clint Netterville told me.

But he says most people stop at that and that leaves a large part of your body uncovered. "Your pants are another big thing," he says, "Don't wear shorts. Don't wear T-shirts. I mean if you can, generally wear two T-shirts and your jacket and at least have jeans on." By wearing all the protective gear, you're protecting your life.  And Clint says, you just can't take chances. So if you're going to ride a bike, make sure you have all the necessary accessories.
