Motorcycle Riders in the Metro

traffic jam in edsaWith the traffic situation in the Philippines, motorcycle riders in the metro have grown tremendously. Riding a motorcycle is definitely the fastest route to getting to your destination these days. But if I hope that if people choose this mode of transport, that they’d make sure to have the proper motorcycle gears to be safe and protected.

Riding a motorcycle will allow you to swiftly move from one lane to another and not be bogged down by the traffic jam. Unfortunately, I’ve seen bikers in the metro getting into accidents. And sadly, some are lethal.

It’s important for motorcycle riders to be wearing helmets all the time when on the road, and to put on some more protective gear for the body. The weather in the Philippines these days are so unpredictable, so those motorcycle jackets for men will definitely provide a certain level of protection. Initially, I was wondering how some could wear jackets on the road while the sun is up.

I discovered that these jackets offer ventilation to allow air to flow in and out of the body. And that helps when the weather is so hot. Still, I wonder why not all the bikers are wearing a jacket. Some do, but I can tell they’re not the kind meant for motorcycling.

But of course, aside from the motorcycle gears that keep you safe, protected, and looking cool, the most important factor is driving safely. I have to say that I’ve encountered motorcycle riders in the metro that disregard driving or traffic rules. It’s easy to get carried away and just get on with the ride. But safety first should be on every motorcycle rider’s mind.
