When shopping for used Harleys in Pittsburgh, the prospective buyer has the chance to buy Harley gear as well. The serious rider benefits from having a variety of protective clothing for biking, including a leather jacket and chaps, boots and gloves. In regard to helmets, motorcyclists continue to have heated debates as to whether they are willing to wear this protective headgear or not. Some view wearing a helmet as interfering with that feeling of freedom and the wind in their hair. Others couldn’t imagine riding without a helmet.
There’s little arguing with statistics, which prove that serious head injuries in motorcycle accidents increase dramatically when states repeal mandatory helmet laws. Harley-Davidson itself strongly encourages riders to wear helmets with the slogan, “You’ve got a good head on your shoulders,” and referring to that body part as the rider’s most precious asset. Anyone shopping for Used Harleys in Pittsburgh who thinks wearing a helmet is not cool might take a look at all the Harley brand-name protective headgear available. This individual is bound to find something appealing. The distinctive styles let everyone know this is a Harley-Davidson helmet, even if the logo is very subtle. Riders who want to boast the Harley name to the masses can choose one with that logo in bold, obvious lettering.
Riding a motorcycle still brings that sense of freedom, even when someone is covered from head to toe in protective gear. The biker is out in the environment instead of being enclosed in a vehicle. That may not be entirely enjoyable while riding through heavy traffic, but it’s immensely appealing when cruising on a country highway past a lake shore or on back roads through hills and mountains. After someone falls in love with riding on these two-wheeled vehicles, it’s tough to go back to a car or pickup truck except when necessary. A shop such as Z&M Cycle Sales has a variety of new and used motorcycles available along with men’s and women’s apparel and even Harley home accessories.
