    Is Wearing Hi Viz Cool? - Episode 22

    Is Wearing Hi Viz Cool? - Episode 22

    This is not a sermon but maybe a word to the wise to wear Hi visibility gear when you are riding your motorcycle.  It may not be “cool” but I think it will save your life.  I recently noticed another motorcyclist riding with some bright yellow on and I saw him miles away.  Another biker, much closer was invisible in comparison and he was much closer.   RevZilla sells some over $50 vest but I have seen some on Amazon for under $20.  Not saying you have to get rid of your cool wear but… adding this to you wardrobe might be prudent.     Praise Report   My wife is recovering from another surgery that happened two weeks ago on her head in a rehab facility.  She is talking again almost 90% like herself.  She has lost track of time.  She doesn’t remember that she has been in a hospital for almost 11 months.  She doesn’t understand why her limbs don’t work and she can’t move.  She is undergoing therapy and I fed her a piece of a cheeseburger and some vegetables Friday for the first time ever.  She said “I can’t believe you haven’t fed me in 30 years.”  She confuses some vivid dreams she has with reality.  Like she thinks she was in a car accident.  She doesn’t know where she is sometimes.  The doctors said she may not walk for a few years.  She still has a tube in her stomach to feed her but it is only for nutrition and hopefully can be removed soon.  She is still healing from the bed sores.  I will have to pay out of pocket for everything soon but what is money.  Who wants to retire?  God is good.       “Your habits can make you or break you; chose them well. The only difference between a rut and a grave is its length, depth, and how long you are in it. “

    Is Riding Motorcycles Dangerous?

    Is Riding Motorcycles Dangerous?

    Are Motorcycles Dangerous?   What people say as soon as you want to buy one or they find out you ride?  Some people get involved in near-death accidents and they completely go off motorcycles, while others get back their motorcycles as soon as they are healed and able to ride again.   Not trying to jinx you or put a mojo on you brothers and sisters.  What I am doing is getting rid of the elephant in the room.  Maybe there is a new rider, a future rider, a person listening that is thinking about buying or throwing that leg over.    Motorcycling is a mindset.  It is a lifestyle. Am I right about it?   Lets tell the truth and shame the devil? How dangerous is riding a motorcycle?  The answer is largely dependent on the rider. Operating a motorcycle requires more mental and physical effort than driving, and a motorcyclist has a significantly higher risk of serious injury in an accident than a driver.  However, with constant training to improve your skills, wearing your safety gear all the time, and always being vigilant on the road can reduce your chances of being in an accident.  Cars have a protective structure that surrounds the driver and comes with safety features such as airbags, seatbelts, and crumple zones designed to protect the driver in case of an accident.  A car has four wheels that give it more balance than a motorcycle, which means that it takes more effort to ride a motorbike than it does to drive a car. On the other hand, motorcycles are easier to accelerate and maneuver through traffic In 2019, 5,014 motorcyclists died in motorcycle crashes, down slightly from 5,038 in 2018, according to the (NHTSA). In 2019, motorcyclists were nearly 29 times more likely than passenger car occupants to die in a crash per vehicle miles traveled. Most motorcycle accidents are preventable, and there are some basic motorcycle safety tips that you must follow to stay safe on your motorcycle.  Riding gear includes chaps, , , a full , , as well as a Getting road rash really sucks but having a head injury because you did not wear a proper helmet is very much worse.  You can get breathable gear from motorcycle shops that allow air circulation so you don't feel sticky. Also, consider getting high visibility gear to make it easy for other road users to see you. Road Hazards There is a vast variety of that could affect how a motorcycle operates. From slick streets to road obstructions, many things could cause a motorcyclist to lose control and crash. The smaller, lighter frame of the vehicle means riders have less protection in the event of a crash. Therefore, motorcyclists need to take the proper precautions and try to avoid the followings hazards: Wet roads Animals Fallen trees or limbs Potholes Crumbling or uneven pavement Left Turns Thanks For subscribing. join us on Facebook.           List of cool stuff.
