Motorcycle Rider Safety Tips
You should always wear ALL of the protective clothing that will ultimately protect you if something goes wrong and will help to minimize injury. We advise you to wear protective leather clothing such as a leather jacket, leather trousers, leather boots (with non-skid soles), and leather gloves. The items when worn together will help to really protect all of your skin in the event of coming off your motorcycle at high speeds and sliding along the road surface. We always recommend that you should wear a motorcycle helmet which offers full face protection. This helps to protect your chin also in the event of a collision.

First at Scene of Motorcycle Road Traffic Accident Advice
If you are ever first to the scene of an accident, we advise you to remember to remain calm, as a calm person is required to take order and direction until medical services arrive, which of course you should contact straight away. You should reassure the victim as they will no doubt be in a confused mental state and likely to be suffering from major shock and trauma following the road traffic accident. If the injured person is breathing you should ALWAYS leave the helmet on. This is to prevent any further injury to the neck which may have occurred. The helmet should only be removed if the airway is blocked and the injured person is not able to breathe, otherwise leave it in place to avoid the risk of further injury.
Victim of a Road Traffic Accident?
When someone has been the victim of a road traffic accident it often takes them by severe shock and can have a dramatic effect on us for the rest of their life, both mentally and physically. Sadly, some victims do not ever ride a bike again due to this happening, and many are even unable to carry out simple tasks around the home, or attend the job they used to do before the road traffic accident. In the worst cases, loss of life can happen and this can affect the family of the deceased greatly.
