From time to time you may be struck by insects, cigarette butts thrown from windows or stones kicked up by the tires of the vehicle ahead. If you do not have face protection, you could be struck in the eye or the face. If you are wearing face protection, it could become smeared or cracked, making it difficult to see. Whatever happens, don’t let it affect your control of the motorcycle. Keep your eyes on the road and your hands on the handlebars. As soon as it’s safe, pull off the road and repair the damage.
