Remember to wear protective gear, even in the summer

Friday, July 2nd, 2010

As the summer heats up, especially this year, we want to remind all of the motorcyclists to wear your protective gear. Staying cool is no excuse for staying safe. Many states require riders to wear DOT-compliant helmets and eye protection. Wear boots that cover the ankles, long pants and a riding jacket. Built-in body armor is also a good addition.

Visit the Motorcycle Safety Foundation website and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration website for more information.

We hope that you have a fun and safe Fourth of July weekend.
