4 Signs Your Motorcycle Gear is Ready to Retire


The general rule of thumb is to replace your motorcycle gear after three to give years of use. Gear includes your helmet, gloves, jacket, pants and other protective paraphilia that you use on a regular basis. However, some instances call for new gear sooner than three years. If you crash your bike and crack your helmet, you need a new one. If you skid across the pavement and tear your bike and pants, you need a new set. If your gloves are looking thin and worn, it’s time to get a new pair. So, how can you tell when new gear is necessary? Look for these four signs:

1.     The Foam Collapses

If your helmet appears in otherwise good condition save for the foam, it may be time to buy a new one. The foam is an essential part of your helmet, and without it, you may as well use a giant bowl to cover your head. Motorcycle helmets don’t have to be expensive. Shop discount helmets for motorcycles for great prices and quality equipment.

2.     The Casing Cracks


If the casing on your helmet begins to crack, it’s time for a new one. Your helmet needs to protect you in all manner of instances. A cracked shell won’t cannot withstand much force and may give way when you need your helmet the most.

3.     A Bad Fit

Motorcycle riding gear needs to be snug, otherwise you risk it getting caught in the spokes of your wheels. If your gear becomes loose due to your own body changes or just the gears’ old age, shop the Honda motorcycle apparel from aftermarket brands for replacement pieces.

4.     Rips and Tears

If your gloves, gear or helmet have any rips or tears, it may be time to replace them. Motorcycle gear is typically made of the most durable fabrics, so when it rips, it’s a sure sign that it’s time to retire a piece and invest in a new one.

If you need to replace your gear but don’t want to spend an arm and a leg, head on over to BikeBandit.com and shop discount helmets for motorcycles and more. They have the equipment you need to ride in style, safety and comfort.

My Failed Project In Baking Mini Egg Cakes

FAILED THIS TIME..... I don't know why, I follow exactly the ingredients and the method written in her website but it was not successful.  Something went wrong somewhere but I don't think I want to try it again.  This recipe is called Mini Egg Cake which is supposed to be soft, airy, light sponge cake but the way I made them, they turned out hard and crusty cake.   If I try again one day, I will half the portion... cos I like to eat these traditional egg cakes.... The Ingredients...  No point putting the recipe here since I failed..  LOL...  The portions of this recipe....  It looked very promising when I put them into the oven....

Home Cooked Dishes

NOT MUCH HAPPENING... and lazy too.... My neighbour gave me half pumpkin and I have been keeping it for a couple of days before I finally decide what to do with it.  I cook it into small chunks and sauteed it with minced meat, okra and basil leaves.  Yes, it would be great to put in some small cilipadi but unfortunately, I did not find any in my fridge.  Steamed a bowl of rice and that was meal for dinner.... One dish meal....  Pumpkin reminds me of sweet potatoes...sweet after cooking... Another dinner meal consist of Sambal Fish, black pepper met and a hard boiled egg  I only boiled the egg, the other two dishes were "sponsored" by my neighbour... LOL...
