We all know that we should wear motorcycle jackets when we hit the road on our bikes.  It’s important to stay protected, but maybe the looks of  most motorcycle jackets don’t fit your style.  Either you don’t like the cut or you just don’t want to be a walking billboard for the brand of the jacket.  Maybe you just don’t like the “Biker” look and want something that can be worn casually as well.  Fortunately, many of the motorcycle gear designers have taken notice and are now producing jackets that depart from the traditional styling cues.  Check out these 5 different low key motorcycle jackets that don’t scream for attention.

New motorcycle gear is awesome.  Manufacturers are constantly improving their products with new technologies and materials.  There’s just one problem.  Most of us have no idea what the heck those materials are and how they are supposed to benefit us.  “Oh that jacket has D30®, Gore-Tex®, and Clarino™?  Cool… I have no idea what that means.”  This is a sentiment that is shared among many riders.  Listed below is an explanation of some of the most common materials and technologies that we see in motorcycle gear today.  With a little knowledge of what these materials are, you can make a more informed decision the next time you look to buy new gear.

There are many riders that will say that you need to wear high length motorcycle boots every time you swing a leg over your bike.  They may be correct that these boots will offer you the most protection, but maybe you value comfort as well.  Being able to get off of your bike and walk around casually is important to a lot of riders, but casual shoes just aren’t going to keep you protected if you go down or have to put extra stress on your ankle.  Motorcycle shoes, ones specifically designed with rider safety in mind, are a good compromise between ultimate safety, comfort and style.  Listed below are some of the best new motorcycle shoes that will keep you protected and looking fresh.
