Take advantage of new safety innovations for motorcyclists

Autumn is approaching, a great time for getting out on your motorcycle to enjoy the crisp weather and changing colors. However, remember that you are vulnerable to serious injury if you are ever in an accident. Here are six recent safety innovations for you and your beloved bike:

1. More stability

Many motorcycle accidents are caused when you brake or accelerate going into a turn. Now, motorcycles can be equipped with stability control systems that do the thinking for you by analyzing traction control and your lean angle. Result? Just the right amount of braking or power that you need.

2. LED lights

Brighten up your bike with LED lights. They are inexpensive, last a long time and make your motorcycle more visible. They will also provide a clearer view of the road ahead. You can purchase helmets that have LED lighting, as well.

3. Helmet improvements

In addition to LED lights, you can find helmets with built-in GPS systems and cameras that provide you with a rear view and help you avoid blind spots.

4. Airbag protection

Airbags are now wearable for motorcycle riders. They are built right into jackets and vests along with sensors that can detect an impact. When the sensors signal danger, the airbag immediately deploys, protecting your chest and vital organs.

5. Better foot gear

In motorcycle accidents, injuries to ankles and feet are often underreported. New boot designs feature flexible impact technology, which  absorbs the impact in a crash and protects the foot area.

6. Those cool trikes

Why settle for two wheels when you can have more stability with three? Three-wheeled motorcycles are becoming increasingly popular, especially with older riders. They provide better balance and are overall easier to handle compared to traditional two-wheeled bikes.

In a crash, a motorcycle rider can sustain serious injuries, including the possibility of life-changing brain damage. You want to do all you can to prevent an accident, and the safety innovations that are now available will help. After all, you do not want to waste a beautiful autumn day in the emergency room.
