I feel like motor biking helmets and proper gear are essential for your riding needs. Having a nice looking helmet for the type of riding you are doing is sooooo crucial! Having the proper gear, such as a nice leather jacket for him and her, having finger or fingerless gloves for helping break the chill or just helping keep a grip on the bars is important. A nice leather vest perhaps. All I know is that being properly dressed and having the right gear is important and safe.
