THE BEST PROTECTIVE GEAR PROVIDES
Wear clothing that fits comfortably while in the riding position and is free from constraint of movement.
Manage your safety by being seen! Choose clothing that is bright and stands out. Add reflective material to dark color items.
In the event something happens your gear must offer armor and padding to reduce the chance and severity of injury.
Helmets and Helmet Laws
Missouri laws require motorcycle riders to wear helmets, auto drivers to wear seat-belts, boaters to use flotation devices, and hunters to wear bright vests. The MMSP encourages all riders to wear proper protective gear including a helmet that is compliant with U.S. D.O.T. standards.
