Yes, Motorcycle Riding Gear Improves Safety

Yes, motorcycle riding gear is expensive but it is well worth the cost. Your life is not worth risking just because you don’t want to spend the extra cash to gear up. You can find motorcycle helmets on sale; in fact, you can find all gear on sale on the right website, so no excuses. Get what you need before you hit the road or dirt track. If you crash, you’ll be glad you did.

Head Injuries Are Devastating

Not to be a Debbie-Downer but head injuries are devastating and, at times, fatal. Do you really want to get on your bike without a helmet. It doesn’t how nice the day is or how much you love to feel the wind on your face, hitting the road literally, not figuratively, could spell disaster. You might end up with a concussion or worse, which makes your recovery slow and dangerous. The NHTSA reports that wearing a helmet saved over 1,100 riders’ lives in motorcycle accidents in a single year.

Skin Is In

If that statistic doesn’t make you run out to purchase motorcycle riding equipment, think about road rash. Have you ever seen road rash? Have you ever had it? Have you ever tried seen a rider with dirt rash after a crash on the track? This is not a pretty sight and for the record, it also hurts like you-know-what. You might think that the coolest riders don’t gear up, but you’d be wrong. They do – from head to toe, because losing your skin in a crash sucks not matter how you slice it.

Get over the cost. Gearing up before you get on your ride is so worth it, and you’ll understand this even better if you do get into a crash. Here’s hoping you don’t, however. If you’re concerned about cost, shop BikeBandit.com for motorcycle helmets on sale and other discounted gear. Check out their cool accessories, too, while you’re at it!

Candylab Retro Wooden Cars

Candylab Toys harkens back to a simpler time, when playthings were made of solid wood, metal, and rubber opposed to today’s flimsy plastic models.

The Brooklyn, NY based company is dedicated to crafting wooden toy cars that capture the spirit and design of American cars from the 1960s. Models include muscle cars, a police cruiser, a taxi cab, a woody wagon and even an Airstream camper.

The cars are made from solid beech wood, colored with water-based paint and a clear urethane coat. Food-grade rubber tires and ABS plastic rims are designed to handle lots of abuse. Importantly, the designs have all been safety tested to US CPSIA and European, Australian and New Zealand regulations, ensuring the young (or young-at-heart) can play without worry.

These vehicles would look equally good in a child’s toy box or on the travel shelf of a family room bookcase.

Featured above is the Lone Cactus ($25), Woodie ($35), and the Airstream Trailer ($35).

Top Racing Cars Launched In 2017

For the genuine racing fan, the smell of the race car rubber burning gives an amazing adrenaline rush. Buying such a shockingly fast monster is ridiculously easy these days, with automakers throwing caution to the winds as far as cost and rationality is concerned. Their only aim is to how fast they can really go, with an eye on 300 mph being a distinct possibility in the near future. A list of 2017 model cars, which meet the legal production requirements are ranked below.

Audi R8 V10 

The Audi R8 leads in performance with its 5.2 liter V10 engine providing an astonishing 610 hp and 413 lb/ft of torque, which ekes out a top speed of 205 mph. The aluminum and carbon fiber platform has 5 drive settings, with performance being absolutely exclusive to the R8.

Porsche 911 Turbo S

This new model from Porsche manages to reach 205 mph from a 3.8 liter, 580 hp and 553 lb/ft torque, in conjunction with a automatic transmission with seven speeds. The zero to 60 sprint is done in flat 2.5 seconds, which gives you enough justification to brag about when you buy this $189,000 piece of cleverness.

Dodge Viper SRT

Once a ferocious supercar company, the Dodge Viper 2017 SRT is probably the last survivor of the Detroit car maker. The four channel anti lock brake system and the transmission of a truck, the Viper, if not in the right hands is a difficult car to handle. This rear wheel drive boasts of speeds up to 206 mph, 645 hp and 600 lb/ft hp.

Bugatti Chiron 

With a price tag of $ 2.6 million and up, the Chiron’s turbo powered 1500 hp W-16 engine cruises at just 261 miles/ hr. It is surely destined to go much faster if they want to make the big spenders part with a few million. As it is, the Bugatti Chiron is today the fastest new racing car in the world in 2017.

Aston Martin Valkyrie

The name Valkyrie is the result of the latest collaboration between Red Bull Racing and Aston Martin, which have come out with this 250 mph creation. The Cosworth 6.5 liter V12 engine together with a seven speed automatic dual clutch transmission generates 4000 lbs of downforce. The car weight is a low 2,200 lbs because of the carbon plus fiber designed body, which enables the vehicle to hold lateral acceleration on curves and corners up to an astounding four times the force of gravity.

Ford GT

The 2017 model of the $450,000 Ford GT hits a high speed of 216 mph. The active aerodynamic system installed generates 400 lbs of downforce at a speed of 150 mph. Though, the GT had the dubious reputation of the worst car to be made in the US at one time, this latest model has erased all doubts and created a lot of anticipation in race car lovers all over.
