Bacon's Broken Bits joins Rich this week to cover some additional rider training and gear for new riders
Rider training schools
Get some gear
- MSF requirements (states and country requirements may vary)
- We cover the basics of what a new rider should get
- Prepare for the sli de, not the ride (Christmas Story little brother!) Just kidding and we had a lot of fun with this during the show. :)
#1, your gear is your primary setup for climate control, get something as comfortable as possible, and minimize gear that is distracting.
- Ride your ride, no need to keep up with advanced riders beyond your skill level
Find a helmet that FITS properly!
- Recommend a full face, but that’s your decision
- Over the ankle, sturdy, perhaps leather, sneakers need not apply, flip flops, your an idiot
- Good place to spend some money for quality and comfort, remember climate control..
- Three finger gloves for Bacon ;)
- Leather or Nylon, consider changing weather needs and rain options
- recommend riding jeans with full kevlar or motorcycle specific riding pants
