Myth Two: Wearing a helmet reduces a rider’s hearing and is dangerous. False – helmets save lives and countless studies prove this

Myth Three: Loud pipes save lives. Possible – in the right situation, but don’t rely on

Myth Four: Wearing black clothing makes you look tough. Maybe – but high visibility clothing is
