Veterans do not find motorcycle helmets and motorcycle batteries new equipment in the cycling industry. In fact, they are more cautious about health matters that the young generation because they understand the importance of the motorcycle gear while riding. Veterans are associated with age and experience, a simple fracture in a bone result in a painful and long journey towards recovery, they try as much as possible to stay safe for the sake of their health and increase their longevity.

 Motorcycle veterans relate experiences and firsthand contact with fatal accidents as witnesses, they have a deep understanding of the value of a motorcycle helmet for prevention of head and neck injuries. The youth tend to take life for granted, in addition, the identity crisis stage worsens the situations for they want to explore what nature has to offer without taking into account the dangers they are exposing themselves to.

 The hardened plastic in the motorcycle helmet is a preventive cautionary measure, in the case of an impact, the skull is protected, at the same time objects slip off the plastic material preventing head injuries. Veterans admit that most motorcycle accidents are fatal; the survivors acknowledge their survival because of wearing a quality helmet.

 The inner lining of the helmet prevents bruises and friction making a motorcyclist comfortable when riding that is why many want a half face motorcycle helmet. It covers the head and the neck, the facial part is made of transparent hardened plastic glass for proper viewing and prevention of dust particles and cold from being in contact with the eyes. Veterans wear a headgear not as a regulation but as a protection gear during impact.

A motorcycle battery is a power behind the automotive. When in motion, the battery recharges itself. Apart from motion, the battery is used to light the headlamp and headlights. Although the machine uses petroleum as a source of energy, the battery powers the wiring part of the equipment. When there is a disconnection in the wiring system, the battery loses power; you can unmount it and charge it using electricity.

 The power of a motorcycle depends on the size of the engine. The bigger the engine size, the higher the fuel consumption and a high voltage of the motorcycle battery. It is a precautionary measure to understand the mechanics of a motorcycle to help you solve simple mechanical and wiring problems when out for a ride. You could be in the remote parts where access to a mechanic is an uphill task, maybe it is a simple loosening on the battery diodes because of the rugged landscape; have some home tools with you like pliers to fix such problems.

 Veterans take pride in the prolonged use of the motorcycles; the mechanics are almost similar hence in a better position to diagnose a problem right from the onset before it becomes a bigger problem. Apart from the motorcycle gear, the motorcycle itself needs to be well serviced and maintained to prevent accidents. Veterans attribute most accidents to careless cycling and poor use and maintenance of the automotive. A renowned veteran quotes, “as long there is a slight change in sound and movement, have the motorcycle checked by a mechanic as a preventive measure.”
