Helmets for Your Safety
by Karen Nodalo
Riding the motorcycle has always been hazardous.
That is the main reason vehicles riders prefer automobiles
rather than motorcycles. More and more motorcycle
accidents have been reported each year that is why
there have been strict rules implemented in motorcycle
riding to decrease such cases.
Helmets are specially made to protect the motorcycle
rider form encountering hazards in the highways.
The rules on wearing helmets have been strictly
implemented and it has been found out that cases
of accidents have been lessened. This was achieved
and continuously helped the people understand that
its not just about wearing one but for life
saving matters too.
Helmets can save your head from a deadly accident.
Helmets should be worn properly and should fit your
head size properly. Wearing a well-fitted helmet
is appropriate and more secure especially if it
has fastening belts for you to tighten and adjust
There are different kinds of wearable helmets for
your choice and depending upon the type of motorcycle
you drive. There are exclusive helmets for dirt
bikes, sport bikes and speed bikes. For fast riding,
a full face covered helmet should be worn to prevent
too much air from getting into your face and eyes.
Imagine riding a fast lane at top speed with the
air smashing into your face? Thats very rude.
This type of head gear offers full protection and
comfort features. It also protects your ears from
too much engine noise on the road.
The open face helmet is still quite risky because
it only protects the upper half of your head but
not entirely. This kind of helmet is not really
very advisable for usage. The only advantage of
this is that its cheap. But would you cut
short your money for an expensive hospital bill
when you arent caught by luck on the streets?
Very few riders purchase this kind of helmets because
it offers slight protection and for some, they consider
it not cool because of its design and built.
Off road are dirt helmets which are used for racing
purposes. In racing, riders should be very sure
of their helmets because racing invites most of
the risk to committing accidents. Before riding,
they should make sure that their head gears fit
their size. If not very exact, at least choose the
helmet which is next to your head size.
No matter how heavy you feel in wearing these head
gears, think twice and think of your safety and
it will pay off everything. If you arent comfortable
in wearing one, think of its worth and life-saving
offers and it will pay off everything. Dont
put your life to risk over some laziness.
