Helmet and Clothing

Warning
When riding the motorcycle, both rider
and passenger must always wear a
motorcycle helmet, eye protection, gloves,
trousers (close fitting around the knee and
ankle) and a brightly coloured jacket.
Brightly coloured clothing will considerably
increase a rider's (or passenger's) visibility
to other operators of road vehicles.
Although full protection is not possible,
wearing correct protective clothing can
reduce the risk of injury when riding.
Warning
A helmet is one of the most important
pieces of riding gear as it offers protection
against head injuries. You and your
passenger's helmet should be carefully
chosen and should fit you or your
passenger's
head
securely. A brightly coloured helmet will
increase a rider's (or passenger's) visibility
to other operators of road vehicles.

Handlebars and Footrests

Warning
The rider must maintain control of the
vehicle
by
keeping
handlebars at all times.
The handling and stability of a motorcycle
will be adversely affected if the rider
removes his hands from the handlebars,
resulting in loss of control or an accident.
Warning
Footrests provided must always be used by
rider and passenger during operation of
the vehicle.
By using the footrests, both rider and
passenger
will
reduce
inadvertent contact with any motorcycle
components and will also reduce the risk of
injury from entrapment of clothing.
