"The number of motorcycle crash fatalities has more than doubled since 1997," says Ozzie Giglio, Principal of Windy City Motorcycle Company.
"We know that helmets save lives and reduce health care costs. In fact, according to Advocates for Auto and Highway Safety, motorcycle helmets are currently preventing $17 billion in societal harm annually...but $8 billion in harm could be prevented if all motorcyclists wore helmets." "It's not just enough to wear a helmet," Giglio continues. "You have to make sure that is functional, well-fitting and able to do its job properly. Additionally, it's important to be sure that riders properly maintain their helmets, otherwise they could greatly diminish its life-span and performance ability." Spring is the ideal time for this reminder, as Giglio says that many riders make unsafe choices about their helmets during the weather. "Check the 'date of birth' inside your helmet's EPS liner," says Giglio. "If it's older than five years, it's in need of replacement." Consider the state of your liner. "Speaking of your liner," says Giglio, "Make sure that you are cleaning it appropriately. Follow the instructions for care and make sure to wash it after long rides. Sweat, rain and the elements can make your liner warp or lose its shape, which in turn will impact the fit of your helmet." Look at your EPS. "Check out the EPS foam on the top of your inner helmet. This foam is basically plastic beads with air bubbles, packed together very tightly. Even an 'insignificant' hit can cause some of these beads to pop, which will then impact the all-over safety of your helmet," says Giglio.


Dealer excited for Harley-Davidson 5-year plan | Powersports Business

Ozzie Giglio, CEO of 13-dealership group Windy City Motorcycle Company, shared with Powersports Business his thoughts on Harley-Davidson's plan to release 50 new motorcycles over the next five years.
The following message is from Giglio: Ozzie Giglio, Windy City Motorcycle Company CEO, noted "that the 17's will hold their value remarkably well if one decides to trade it in later for any of the upcoming models and due to current high demand and low supplies of those specific models." Giglio said, "As the owner and operator of multiple motorcycle dealerships and retail locations, I have seen firsthand the impressive increase in motorcycle sales and related products and services, as well as the increased interest in motorcycle riding from people who might never have considered a bike before. Just last year alone, we trained over 1,000 new riders in our motorcycle-training courses, experiencing an unprecedented growth at all of our locations." Why does Giglio think that motorcycle riding is becoming more attractive?


Check Your Helmets

"The number of motorcycle crash fatalities has more than doubled since 1997," says Ozzie Giglio, Principal of Windy City Motorcycle Company and avid Harley-Davidson rider.
"We know that helmets save lives and reduce health care costs. In fact, according to Advocates for Auto and Highway Safety, motorcycle helmets are currently preventing $17 billion in societal harm annually...but $8 billion in harm could be prevented if all motorcyclists wore helmets." That is why April is a crucial reminder for motorcyclists to stay abreast of their helmet's condition. "It's not just enough to wear a helmet," says Giglio. "You have to make sure that is functional, well-fitting and able to do its job properly. Additionally, it's important to be sure that riders properly maintain their helmets, otherwise they could greatly diminish its life-span and performance ability." Spring is the ideal time for this reminder, as Giglio says that many riders make unsafe choices about their helmets during the weather. "Check the 'date of birth' inside your helmet's EPS liner," says Giglio. "If it's older than 5 years, it's in need of replacement." Consider the state of your liner.

This foam is basically plastic beads with air bubbles, packed together very tightly. Even an 'insignificant' hit can cause some of these beads to pop, which will then impact the all-over safety of your helmet," says Giglio. "At our locations, we take our time and truly pay attention to your specific needs," says Giglio, who owns and operates 13 Harley-Davidson dealerships in Northern Illinois and Southern Wisconsin (including 10 dealerships and 3 retail centers). "Sometimes riders complain that buying a new helmet every few years is an annoyance," says Giglio, "Yet most people don't think twice about upgrading their phones or buying a new laptop. Not only is buying a new helmet a life-saving necessity, but the technology surrounding helmet construction is improving every year.
