Work Clothing The right work clothes are essential when you're working on your motorbike. Work gloves not only keep your hands clean, but also protect against injury. Important: Workshop gloves should be elastic and close-fitting so that you have good tactile feel. Protective goggles and a face mask protect your eyes and face against fine dust, paint particles and flying sparks. Finally, your work clothes should include a pair of workshop overalls, which you don't have to worry about keeping clean.
