The MIC reports that “Gear Up Every Ride is a new initiative intended to inspire a fundamental shift in the way riders think, encouraging them to express themselves and the independent spirit of motorcycling through their riding gear. It was created by the Motorcycle Industry Council’s Rider Safety Committee – a team of experts representing riding gear manufacturers, distributors and marketers.
“Gear Up is based on the core principles of education, preparation and inspiration. The Gear Up team believes that informing riders of the latest developments and trends in protective equipment will allow them to make the best decisions about the gear they wear.”
