When in an accident, motorcycle riders are more likely than passengers in a car to be seriously injured. As a result, motorcycles lack many necessary safety features like airbags, safety belts, and steel frames to keep riders safe in the event of an accident. Instead, they ride only while wearing a helmet and a riding suit.
