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.

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL... 

A Short Stay At Fatima Hospital

TWELVE DAYS SINCE my last post.... I was admitted to the hospital last week for heart palpitations and was under observation for two nights.... Thank God all is well now....  And it is still all about food... this time from the hospital... LOL...  For breakfast 2 slices of bread... oats and milo.... I opted for porridge during one lunch.... And for dinner....  Wanton noodles for breakfast before I was discharged.... This was attached to my body to monitor the palpitations....  And the doctor whom I have chosen without recommendations... I saw the hospital profiles on the doctors  And I chose him because of his cheerful profile picture.... Yes, indeed he is what he looks... And I feel better after that... LOL... 

My White Elephant

WHITE ELEPHANT.... still laying on my table for two months I think....   My friend groomer is not free these days, my poor Labby badly needs her hair cut and leaving no choice, I ordered the grooming shaver online.  I thought it would be easy to install the shaver to the appliance and till today, I am still at my wits end on how it is fixed.  My friend gave me a tip... check out the Youtube, she said.  Yeah, how come I did not think of that.....  But till today, I have not even touched it and my poor furry member will have to wait till this Mama has her right mood to do it.   My own hair also badly needs a hair cut and with the high Covid cases each day, I guess I have to tolerate for another month with my unruly hair..... or perhaps I can make use of this clipper on myself before I use it on my furry member!  LOL.... Crazy me! Still standing nicely on the table....  Still looking at the gadgets.... and not doing anything about them... I am happy with this dish....  Better looking afte
