Whether it's a 10-km ride to your office or a 1000-km ride to Ladakh, if you have a high-end good looking bike, it doesn't hurt to match by cleaning up well. Now, here's the thing: buying the right accessories not only makes you look the part of a pro-rider but also equips you with the comfort to battle the slowest of jams, the roughest of terrains, and the harshest of weathers. Here's your definitive guide to buying accessories that will make heads turn on the highway 1. Helmets © Getty Images At the cost of sounding like your friendly local traffic cop, wearing a helmet while riding is not an option. What is an option, however, is looking good in that protective gear you need. Choosing the right helmet can help you not only make your ride safe and comfortable but can turn heads and in a good way! The trick is to get the colour right; instead of a flashy yellow helmet, go for sturdy earth tones with your Royal Enfield. It helps to get the style right too. Usually heavy bikes are to be accompanied by open face helmets while street-style helmets go better with sport-bikes. It is always advisable to buy from official retailers that guarantee the right style, comfort, and quality. 2. Jackets © Getty Images Bike jackets can be either leather or fabric-based. While leather helps you look the way you'd expect a classic “biker” to look, high-quality fabrics are able to resist abrasion as strongly as leather, and new materials are equipped with Gore-Tex or other water-resistant membranes capable of keeping you dry in bad weather. Fabric-based jackets are affordable as well. Again, it is essential to get the right colour. The idea is to keep it classy, and not flashy at the same time. 3. Pants © Getty Images Contrary to popular belief, regular jeans will not protect you in an accident. It is always advisable to buy proper riding pants that offer the right comfort and protection. Much like jackets, pants can be either leather or fabric based. They should fit like a glove, but at the same time should be comfortable as well. Always test your pants out on a bike, what might work well standing, might not work great on a 7-hour road trip. 4. Gloves © Getty Images Bike gloves should fully cover your fingers, palm, and your wrists. Gloves should reach over or under your jacket leaving no skin exposed. Black is the safe colour here, but textured highlights can provide the right amount of flash in your otherwise overall classy look. What is most important is that the gloves fit well and provide you with enough strength to not only handle well but survive the unfortunate fall with zero scratches.
