Safe Riding Practices
Wear protective apparel to decrease the risk of injury and increase riding comfort.
• Always wear a helmet that meets or exceeds established safety standards. Approved helmets in the USA and Can-
ada bear a U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) label. Laws in some areas require that you wear an approved
helmet. Head injuries are the leading cause of fatalities in accidents involving motorcycles. Statistics prove that an
approved helmet is the most effective protection in preventing or reducing head injuries.
• Wear eye protection to protect eyes from wind or airborne particles and objects. Laws in some areas require that
you wear eye protection. VICTORY recommends that you wear approved Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)
bearing markings such as VESC 8, V-8, Z87.1, or CE. Make sure protective eyewear is kept clean.
