Safety Checks on Your Bike

October 27th, 2014

Yup!!! It’s that time of the year again and we are reaching out to all to give you the yearly reminder since we have lots to do travel-wise in in the end of the year. You know the drill… We all were taught it, we all know it, but few of us actually practice it. A safety check should be made before you get on your motorcycle every time you ride. We tend to get complacent and lazy about this, but the couple of minutes it takes could make a difference between an enjoyable day of riding and a hazardous situation.

Please ensure that your bike is in proper condition or have it served before you hit the highways. At the very least, check the basics:

Check your tires and tire pressure. Check for any cracks, bulges, or signs of wear in the treads. Improper tire pressure or any defects could cause a blowout.
Check your running lights, high beam, spots, brake light, and blinker/turn signals. These are crucial for viability and safety.
Make sure your mirrors are positioned correctly. Clean and adjust all mirrors to ensure proper viewing.
Inspect clutch and trottle cables. If you see that a cable shows wear, get it changed.
Look under your bike to see if there are signs of any gas or oil leaks. Check your fuel and oil levels.
Test your front and rear brakes. Each brake should feel firm and hold the motorcycle still when fully applied. Also make sure you have enough “meat” on your brake pads.
Test the horn.
ALWAYS WEAR YOUR HELMET AND PROTECTIVE GEAR!!!

As far as packing goes, since most bikes are not outfitted to transport very much cargo, it is imperative that they are loaded properly. While the luggage rack above same of our rear fenders look like the prime place to load cargo, they are not. In fact, loading the bike in these areas dramatically changes the center of gravity of your motorcycle, making handling more difficult. Instead, to the extent possible, keep your cargo in front of your rear axle. If you can imagine a triangle over your bike, with the arms reaching your tires and the apex over the center of your bike, the cargo should be as close as comfortable possible to the center below the hypothetical apex. Once the cargo is placed, make sure you securely fasten it., using elastic bungee cords and/or cargo nets. Remember, the load must be fastened tightly; a loose load can shift and cause danger.

Safe travels, everyone!!

A Good Helmet?

September 28th, 2014

Maybe we should explore the basic purpose of wearing a good helmet. Remember, you want one that is Snell or DOT approved. Just purchasing some nifty novelty helmet will not suffice. A bad helmet can do severe damage and can be just as dangerous as not wearing one at all.

There are helmets out there that varies to accommodate all types of preferences. Whether you like full face, three-quarter, or half-shells. There are quite a number to select from. They even have full face helmets that convert to three-quarter, which is very cool.

Regardless of the style you choose, your helmet has tree basic components: The outer shell, the energy-absorbing liner, and the interior padding. The outer shell is typically made from a resin/fiber composite (kevlar, carbon fiber, or fiberglass) or molded thermoplastic (polycarbonate). The interior padding provided comfort around your head and face. The liner, however, is of great importance. The liner is comprised of expanded polystyrene, which is much like you would find on the inside of a beverage cooler or like a foam coffee cup. When your helmet impacts against a surface, i.e. a road or curb, the hard outer shell stops instantly, protecting from abrasion and/or penetration of sharp objects. On the inside of the helmet, your head keeps going until it collides with the liner. At this point, the design of the liner is intended to bring your head to a gentle stop, and prevent brain injury.

Naturally, your choice of helmet plays a huge role in how effective it will be in case of an accident. Do not skimp. There is an old joke about a ten-dollar helmet being fine if that is all you think your head is worth. It’s cliche, but has a lot of truth to it. Please invest in a good helmet, which will provide you with good protection. Even if you do think that your head is only worth Ten dollars, there may be someone out there who places a lot more value on it. If you won’t do it for yourself, please do it for them.

Also, please be aware tat helmets have a shelf life. Really!!! The polystyrene liner breaks down with age, and loses its integrity. The very longest you should keep a helmet is 4-5 years. The better approach is to replace it every 2 years, to be absolutely certain. It’s good “insurance” for keeping your head safe. For those of you who have older helmets, even though you find them comfortable, be aware that at a certain point, they are more effective as a flower pot or an ashtray.

Also, if you drop your helmet, it’s done. Kaput. Over. That drop compromises the liner, even though the outer shell may appear unscathed. Don’t try to talk yourself into thinking: “it didn’t hit that hard”. You don’t want to find out the hard way that it lost its ability to protect you.

On 8/13/14, we rode for our Fallen Brothers. They were husbands, fathers, sons, brothers, and friends. We will ALWAYS honor those that are not here physically. May we NEVER forget them. They all had taught us a valuable lesson, for they paid the ultimate price. Forever in our hearts and minds. I AM MY BROTHER’S KEEPER!!!

Hurricane Season is here! Time to think about getting ready!

June 8th, 2013

As with every season, I hope that we are left alone by mother nature but don’t count on it. Better to be prepared than sorry. Take a look over your home/condo/auto insurance policies, inventory your possessions, make arrangements for pets, make sure you have medication refills etc…Make sure that you have your insurance documents copied and in a safe place. Back up your home computers as well. Bottom line; BE PREPARED. Remember, after a storm, CASH is king so make sure you have cash on hand!

BE SAFE OUT THERE!!!
