Gear Saves Lives

Posted by George Tait | Mar 07, 2016 | 0 Comments

Over this past weekend in and around St. George Utah there were three motorcycle accidents. Motorcycle riders are more exposed to the elements that vehicle drivers are so they have to really watch to make sure they do not become dehydrated or suffer the effects of overheating. This is what happened to at least two of the bikers. They felt dizzy and pulled off to the side of the road but dumped their bikes in the ditch. Fortunately for both they were wearing all of their safety gear including leather chaps, gloves and most importantly their helmets. Both of these riders walked away with only minor injuries.

In the third accident the biker looked over his shoulder before changing lanes and slammed into the back of the vehicle ahead as it slowed. Again, this biker was wearing his helmet and escaped with only a cut chin.

You can say all of these bikers were lucky but you can also make the argument that these bikers were smart – and more importantly – prepared.
