Much of the motorcycle paraphernalia found on the motorcycle clothing UK market today is made with the primary end goal of looks in mind. While there is nothing wrong with wearing motorcycle gloves and other motorcycle clothing that has a stylish appearance, the final goal of all motorcycle clothing that is chosen and purchased should be to protect the wearer. If a person falls or is knocked form his or her motorcycle while riding down the street at fifty to sixty miles per hour, then the individual will not care much how good the motorcycle gloves and clothing looked from the top of the bike.
The United States motorcycle clothing and motorcycle gloves markets are at a severe and unfortunate disadvantage with regards to safety issues. No single regulatory body presides over these protective clothing manufacturers as is routinely the case in Europe. The Europeans and their regulatory boards make motorcycle clothing go through extended tests before they allow such motorcycle gloves and motorcycle clothing to be sold and promoted as protective clothing.
