Gear Up Every Ride is a new initiative intended to inspire a fundamental
shift in the way riders think, encouraging them to express themselves
and the independent spirit of motorcycling through their riding gear. It
was created by the Motorcycle Industry Council's Rider Safety Committee
- a team of experts representing riding gear manufacturers, distributors
Gear Up is based on the core principles of education, preparation and
inspiration. The Gear Up team believes that informing riders of the
latest developments and trends in protective equipment will allow them
to make the best decisions about the gear they wear.
The Motorcycle Industry Council exists to preserve, protect and promote
motorcycling through government relations, communications and media
relations, statistics and research, aftermarket programs, development of
data communications standards, and activities surrounding technical and
regulatory issues. As a not-for-profit, national industry association,
the MIC seeks to support motorcyclists by representing manufacturers,
distributors, dealers and retailers of motorcycles, scooters, ATVs,
ROVs, motorcycle/ATV/ROV parts, accessories and related goods and
services, and members of allied trades such as insurance, finance and
investment companies, media companies and consultants.
The MIC is headquartered in Irvine, Calif., with a government relations
office in metropolitan Washington, D.C. First called the MIC in 1970,
the organization has been in operation since 1914. Visit the MIC at www.mic.org.
