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.

Reunion At Museum Restaurant At Starling Mall

CLASSMATES REUNION... but not from my year.  i just tagged along with my sister who wanted my company that evening.  She was going to meet up with some of her classmates at The Starling mall.  I did not want to drive there, taking Grab is a much easier and practical choice, considering it was rush hour in the evening.  Furthermore, I am not familiar with the roads... both of us might panic on the federal highway.  LOL... 
Having someone to take us there is so stress free, we only have to pay RM20 for the ride.  :)  Our first time to Startling Mall and being made familiar by one of the bloggers, Phong Hong who used to post up her lunch meals taken from there.  We were supposed to meet up at 7pm but we reached there an hour earlier to "survey" the shops and ended up buying a "bit."  Blame it on my sister who always like to give positive comments most of the time!   The dinner was held at The Museum.... Originated from Ipoh actually and how there is a branch here in …

Caring And Sharing At Limestone, Regal Lodge, Ipoh

IMPROMPTU GATHERING.... Nothing was planned beforehand, it was only at the last minute that we received call to have lunch at Limestone Cafe, inside Regal Lodge.  It was my first time there to have set lunch.  The menu prices were reasonable, around RM15.90 for the main dish, RM3 for a bowl of soup and RM2 for ice cream.  Other than that, coffee, tea and soft drinks are free.  
We were there not so much for the food but for the ambiance... we practically had the whole cafe to ourselves during that lunch hour.  Only one or two tables were occupied and we spent more than two hours there since it was a Friday long hour lunch for my working colleagues.  After a few months absence from me, it was wonderful to catch up with my ex-colleagues again!  
I was super hungry by lunch time and I felt like eating almost anything in the menu. We ended up ordering one main dish each and then sharing them with one another so that we could taste a bit of this and that..... 
I felt like eating Aglio Oli…

Famous Wanton Mee At New Hoong Kee, Bandar Sri Damansara

BREAKFAST FEAST..  Best meal of the day is always my first meal because I know I am able to tuck in as much as my stomach can accept.  I eat a lot in the mornings and then slowly dwindle by the end of the day.  As the saying goes, eat like a king in the morning and like a pauper in the evenings.  This is what I normally do nowadays, not because I wanted to, but it is my own body system that tune me this way.  Though I deny I am old but the body says otherwise... LOL...

On this morning, we went to New Hoong Kee in Bandar Sri Damansara, my sibling said this is currently his favourite place.  And after trying, I know why.... the food we ordered, all turned out good and tasty, even the curry reminded me of my good old days!
Managed to catch the name otherwise I wouldn't be able to tell this story now...  My type of curry... I can go without the chicken... Just the other ingredients will do fine for me.. I like the way they cook this curry... Heard the BBQ pork is tasty too... melt in …
