It is quite possible that soon we will include gloves to this list, which will be used in even the smallest motorcyclist accident.
Recently, a lot has been changing in terms of legislation concerning motorcyclists. Motorcycle helmets have been mandatory equipment for motorcycle riders in the European Union for quite some time now. One of the member states, Spain, is considering further steps!
No one needs to be convinced that a protective helmet is the key and most important piece of clothing for motorcyclists. It is quite possible that we will soon include gloves in this list, which will be used in even the smallest accident of a motorcyclist.
In Spain, this regulation will soon come into force through an amendment to the law. Everyone riding a motorcycle in this country will be obliged to have this piece of equipment. Interestingly, similar regulations are already in place in France, with great results.
