In general, a motorcycle might be basically less safe than a car, but there are a couple of factors that people could do to keep safe on the road.
1. Choose the proper jacket
As a motorcycle provides little protection in the accident, what rider needs to wear would be a part of the accident protection system. Even when you are not in the crash with a vehicle, you would lose control easily and lay down the bike. In these cases, you would slide along on the road.
The most important reason why many riders choose leather is that it is strong enough to keep their skin from scratching when sliding on the road ground. In addition, motorcyclist is always exposed to other hazards such as cigarette butts, bugs or small rocks, which driver in a car would avoid. At about 97 km/h or 60 mph, even the small rocks could sting. And a leather jacket could help to protect you from them.
