The Importance Of Choosing The Right Motorcycle Helmet

The Importance Of Choosing The Right Motorcycle Helmet

The importance of a motorcycle helmet cannot be overstated, and helmets have saved countless lives all across the United Kingdom, and in other countries as well. Thankfully, in the United Kingdom, motorcycle helmets are compulsory, and if you don’t wear one, you will definitely get a ticket, and points on your motorcycle licence. Now that it’s clear that you have to wear one, the next thing that you need to concentrate on, is what kind of helmet that you would like. There are many to choose from, in many styles, and in different colours, and the selection is so good, that it can get a little bit confusing at times.

The kinds of helmets include full face, open face, half helmet, motocross, and flip up, and thankfully, all of these can be bought at Wheels Motorcycles, where they stock the full range. It is generally recommended that you wear a full-face helmet, because it provides protection for all of your head, including your chin. When choosing the right helmet for you, please consider the following information.

  • Be aware of safety standards – Just because a helmet comes with a high price tag, doesn’t necessarily mean that it’s the right helmet for you. On the opposite side of the spectrum, just because a helmet is cheap, doesn’t mean that it is unsafe. You’re also going to be paying extra money for a helmet that is deemed as fashionable at that time, and a helmet with just a plain colour, will be cheaper than a helmet that sports lots of colours. Thankfully, there is a helmet safety rating approved by SHARP, and this will help you to make the right decision.
  • Check the size – A helmet that might fit a colleague’s head, may not be suitable for yours, because we all have different shaped heads. All brands are not the same, and each helmet has a unique shape. You can measure your head, when you’re searching for a helmet, or trying to buy one online, but the only sure fire way to know that your helmet will fit you, is to try it on. This is why it is best to visit your local motorcycle store, so you are sure that you are choosing the right helmet.
  • Helmet extras – You want to be able to make the most out of being outdoors, and so, always try to find a helmet that provides you with good ventilation, and look into specialist visors, that stop it from fogging up, on a cold morning. There are also helmets that allow you to fit a Bluetooth unit, and some of them even have added pump-up cheek pads, for a better fit. Always try to get a helmet that has a removable internal lining, so that you can wash it. To find out more about the law regarding safety helmets, have a look here.

If you follow the above tips, then you should be able to find a helmet that is suitable for the shape and size of your head, and more importantly, it’s comfortable as well. Take your time choosing one, because this is a very important purchase. Your life may even depend upon it.

What Are the Most Common Bike Accidents?

What Are the Most Common Bike Accidents?

There are lots of people who love to ride bikes both as a form of transportation and as a form of exercise; however, similar to other vehicles, there is a chance that a bicycle accident could unfold. It is important for everyone to know about some of the most common causes of bicycle accidents and how they can be avoided. This could prevent potentially serious injuries from taking place.

One of the most common bicycle accidents that might take place is called a left hook. There is a vehicle that is turning left across a lane of oncoming traffic. While the driver of the car may look for cars, he or she is not looking for a bike that is traveling straight. Therefore, the oncoming car turns left in front of the cyclist, who has the right of way as he or she is going straight. Then, a serious bicycle accident takes place. In order to avoid these accidents, cyclists must never assume that a vehicle that is turning left has seen the car. In addition, drivers of cars must keep their eyes open cyclists who also share the road.

Another similar accident is called a right hook. In this scenario, the car and the cyclist are traveling straight. The car passes the cyclist and forget about him or her. The car has passed the cyclist on the left and then, shortly thereafter, needs to make a right turn. When the car slows down, the cyclist catches up to the car. Then, the driver turns right directly in front of the cyclist. The results of this bicycle accident could be devastating and might lead to catastrophic injuries. In order to avoid this, the cyclist must watch for brake lights and think about what the car is doing. The car needs to remember that there is a bicycle just behind the vehicle.

Finally, it is possible for a car and a bike to suffer a T-bone collision. This often happens when a cyclist comes out of a driveway and enters the road without pausing to look both ways. This is a situation where the cyclist has failed to yield the right of way to the car and the fault will often be placed at the feet of the cyclist. To avoid this accident, cyclists must always come to a stop before entering the road. A cyclist needs to remember that he or she is a vehicle and must obey the various traffic laws.

These are a few of the most common reasons why someone might be involved in a bicycle accident. It is critical for everyone to take extra steps to remain safe.

Barry Bonds Number Retired by San Francisco Giants

Barry Bonds Number Retired by San Francisco Giants

When Barry Bonds left the great game of baseball ten years ago he dreamed he’d be doing in while at attention in left field at the famous AT&T Stadium, with a sellout crowd giving him a standing ovation and yelling their hearts out for his stellar performance as a San Francisco Giant. But it wasn’t in the stars. As everyone knows, things worked out a little bit differently than that.

But this past Sunday Bonds finally got his daydream fulfilled, after nearly eleven years away from the people and the park he gave so much of his life and heart to. San Francisco celebrated the man as a one-of-a-kind wonder and the Giants officially retired his number, amidst the applause and hoopla that a sports legends always deserves, and eventually gets, in this country.

After the extravagant ceremony Bonds indulged in one of his trademark meals — chocolate chip cookies with a large cold glass of milk — while he chatted with reporters out in AT&T Field, where so much memorable baseball history was made. Most of it by Bonds, the way he likes to tell it.

Bonds told reporters he considered the Field to almost be his private property. He should just sign one of my. Custom Baseballs already. With the typical braggadocio and hyperbole that has made Bonds a beloved character in the sports writing community and with his legion of fans, Bonds boasted to the enthralled scribblers that it was his exploits that built the Park in the first place and kept it going when baseball as a whole went through some lean years back at the turn of the century. He told reporters that even though Willie Mays and Willie McCovey never played in AT&T Park, they still gave him the inspiration he needed during down times to keep plugging away. But then again, as baseball’s all-time homerun king, Bonds has a perfect right to have a swelled head and do a little boasting. At least, that’s how all the reporters who covered the event felt about it. Although hardened to the peccadilloes of professional athletes and not much given to sentiment, the reporters at the ceremony in San Francisco cut Bonds a lot of slack and simply quoted him without comment, except to say that one of the giants in baseball history was finally having his well-deserved and long delayed moment in the sun.

The old controversies, of course, weren’t entirely laid to rest by San Francisco’s celebratory blowout for Bonds. The performance-boosting drugs that Bonds took to give him that extra edge in smacking out homeruns like an assembly line are still a matter of debate among sports writers and lovers of the game of baseball all over the world. How much of Bonds’ 762 home runs were due to steroids? There’s really no way of knowing; the only hard, concrete fact is that Bonds was firmly ensconced in the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown long before the steroid story broke and sidetracked his career.

Another baseball legend at the event, Willie Mays, has not been shy in wondering out loud to reporters why Bonds got the nod from Cooperstown long before he himself did. It’s not a question he asks out of personal jealousy, says Mays, but rather out of love for the game of baseball itself. It’s a game, says Mays, that gave him the chance to break the color barrier in big league sports and that he still thinks is the greatest expression of American spirit and attitude. But sometimes, he tells reporters privately, it’s just as skewed as any other big business venture in America.
