Tips for motorcycle safety

There are a number of myths about motorcycle safety that cyclists in California should be familiar with. For example, leather is not just for fashion. It helps prevent scrapes and cuts in an accident. That full-faced helmets restrict visibility is another myth.

Furthermore, unlike open-face helmets, they protect from bugs, weather and other distractions that may also be impediments to safety.
