Gear made for motorcycles

When you're on a motorcycle, you need to protect yourself well. That means wearing the right clothing that will protect you in a fall or collision. Leather, for example, offers better protection against abrasions. This can make all the difference if you hit the road surface.

Motorcycle helmet: essential

In Quebec, you're required to wear a helmet if you drive a motorcycle. It's the law!

Were you involved in a collision with a car? A helmet prevents head injuries. According to the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, wearing a helmet reduces the risk of being killed by 37%.

Safety first

  1. Maintain your motorcycle

  2. Master driving techniques

  3. Know your motorcycle

  4. Be careful at intersections

  5. Respect the speed limit

Should you insure this gear?

Good motorcycle gear is expensive. Should you insure it under your insurance policy? It all depends on the investment you made. In the event of an accident, the Société de l'assurance automobile du Québec (SAAQ) provides compensation of up to $1,000 for leather clothing and helmets.
