Riding a motorcycle is one of the most wonderful feelings you can experience of freedom and in direct contact with nature. Motorcycle riding can be as dangerous as it is pleasant therefore, carrying a first aid kit at all times is imperative.
Being Prepared For Adventure
Being prepared for any situation can in fact save your life should you have a motorcycle accident. A motorcycle adventure can turn out to be good or bad and not necessarily out of your fault. Therefore, a motorcycle first aid kit should always be part of your motorcycle gear no matter what.
Your motorcycle first aid kit should contain the following in order for it to be able to be of any assistance should the need arise: a good pair of scissors as you may need to cut through thick clothes, gloves in order not to contaminate the wound, bandages of cloth and band aids of different sizes, rubbing alcohol pads, disinfectant cream and spray, pain killers and distilled water or wipes.
You can find ready made motorcycle first aid kits however, in due course you will just need just to replenish the one existent in order to ensure you have all the required items at all times. I recommend you take the time and ensure that you are fully stocked with the motorcycle first aid kit items before you start on the road, as you never know when you have an emergency creeping up on you.
Always dress adequately when riding a motorcycle; there are special bike suits, which protect your entire body in case of any accidents. The part that that motorcyclists hurt most and at times proves fatal is the head for which you simply must provide protection any time you get on a motorcycle with a proper helmet.
Driving a motorcycle on a car populated road is hard, therefore, drive carefully; motorcycles usually get hit by cars because they cannot be seen in the mirrors so, ensure that the car driver is aware of you being on the road as well. Proper signaling when changing lanes, giving priority when required and abiding by all other road rules is essential even if you are driving a bike.
The motorcycles first aid kit is an essential part of your bike equipment without which you should never get on the road. Another very important thing you must not forget to mention in your motorcycle first aid kit is any specific medication you may need or any special medical condition you are in and others should be aware of to be able to save your life.
