Airbags and other safety innovations for motorcycle riders

A vehicle is a cocoon of steel protecting motorists. Unfortunately, a motorcycle is not. Auto designers are always introducing new safety features for cars and trucks, but now motorcyclists can enjoy similar innovations for a safer ride.

All the innovative technology available may not save you from a motorist who makes a left turn directly in front of you, or who suddenly changes lanes, forcing you off the road. However, technological advances could significantly reduce injuries that might otherwise be catastrophic. 

Here is a collection of safety-inspired accessories and modifications for those who love taking their beloved bikes out for a spin.

Wearing apparel

This is where the airbags come in. Now you can find them built into vests and jackets. The airbags deploy, protecting your chest and vital organs, when built-in sensors detect an impending collision. Wear them with one of the new, safer helmets equipped with both a built-in, rear-view camera and a GPS system. Finally, check out the new boots designed with flexible impact technology. They absorb the shock of a collision and better protect your feet and ankles.

Lighting

LED lighting provides greater visibility. Not only will you be able to see the road up ahead better, but motorists will see you better. While you are looking into the new attire innovations, look for helmets equipped with LED lighting meant to enhance your visibility.

Better control

Many motorcycle accidents happen when riders do not accelerate or brake properly during turns. Clever new stability control systems quickly analyze lean-angle and traction data and allow you as the rider the amount of power or braking you need in a particular situation.

The new trikes

Three-wheeled motorcycles came about because older riders wanted bikes that were easier to handle. The average age of motorcyclists continues to inch upward, and trikes offer better balance and stability. You have probably seen one or two in your community as they have become quite popular among senior riders.
