Important Accessories For Motorcycles

Monday, 30 December 2013 09:35:38 Europe/London

While riding a motorcycle, you need to take care of a lot of things. The most important of them all is your safety, which is associated with a lot of other factors. If you are able to take care of all of them, you will certainly be able to enjoy a safe ride no matter where you go.

Before looking at something else, you first need to ensure that you completely understand your machine. If you have been riding one particular motorcycle for the past many years, you will not have to face any issue. However, things are different when you have bought a new vehicle, as it will have different characteristics and the handling will also be not what you have been used to.

Therefore, the basic thing is to know your machine properly before hitting the road. Moreover, you should have all of the documents with you, when you are out on the streets or the highway. You should have a valid license and the ownership copy of the motorcycle, so that you don’t end up in any sort of trouble.

Other than these things, you should be concerned about your safety more than anyone else. Try following the road signs and always stay in your lane, so that there is no chance of an accident. Plus, you should try and keep the speed lesser, as you might have some handling issues if you have to brake immediately to avoid an accident.

Motorcycle Accessories

Keep your safety gear with you every time, as you have to be prepared for the worse. In case you are hit by someone else or something else of such nature happens, you have to keep yourself protected in order to avoid serious injuries.

This is still not enough though, as there are a few highly important accessories for bikers that should be kept handy or installed on the motorcycle. Some of the riders feel that they only need to keep themselves protected through the safety gear like helmets, gloves, body armor, boots, goggles etc. Although these things are extremely crucial and protect you, they don’t prevent and accident.

Motorcycle Accessories

The first thing you need to ensure as a biker is that you don’t get involved in any sort of an accident or other problem that results in any collision. You can only make this possible by keeping a few important accessories installed on your vehicle.

One of the most important things that should be installed on your motorcycle is the mirrors. They help you keep an eye on what’s coming from behind without having to twist your neck and look back, which is quite a risky thing to do. A lot of motorbike accidents are caused in this manner, as the motorcyclists look back; they end up hitting something in front.

Then you must have the indicators on your motorbike. Just as it is important for you to know what’s happening behind you, the vehicles coming from the rear end should know that you are about to take a turn in any particular direction. If you have the indicators installed, you can simply use them to let others know about which direction you are headed to. This way, the chances of a collision are close to zero.

Similarly, you must have the bars, grips and levers installed on your motorcycle, as all of these accessories will help you make the handling better. This way, you will manage to keep things under control in case there is a panic situation.

Finally, there are a few other things which are not mandatory, but you can have them for your convenience. Things like the motorcycle cover, top box etc. If you wish, you can check all of such Accessories from RiderWear and place your order for them.

Dan Harrison Eyeing 2014 British Supertwin Title

Friday, 27 December 2013 11:25:46 Europe/London

Making comebacks in Motor Racing is not an easy job at all, especially when you are doing it at the highest level against the best in the business. You require extreme fitness, determination and the motivation to achieve your goals.

No matter it is motorcycle or car racing, there are new developments every year and the participants have to stay informed about them. Otherwise there is no chance for them to fight for victory regardless of how talented they might be. This is what makes a comeback even more difficult, as you have to catch up with the rest of the field in very less time.

However, a star motorcycle racer, Dan Harrison, recently surprised one and all with a superb comeback to motorcycle racing. He started his career in 2003 and soon became really popular amongst the young lot of riders. His performances were really impressive and it was only a matter of time before he could become a world champion.

Dan

Due to some unforeseen reasons, the young rider decided to part ways from racing and remained in exile for almost five years. This is more than enough time for a sportsman to be rusty and out of colour, but that was not the case with Harrison.

The determined Briton decided to end his exile and returned to Motor Racing in 2011. He was unable to make headlines straightaway, but got the attention of everyone in less than one year. During 2012, he appeared in the Thundersport GB Series and consistently scored points for his team, finishing in the top-10 regularly.

Moreover, he managed to finish the season with a victory, which was more than enough to justify his abilities. It clearly showed that he still possessed the skills required to deliver at the highest level against some strong riders.

Dan

Unfortunately, sponsorship problems meant that Harrison was unable to take part in most of the 2013 season. This was really disappointing, as he had the talent and was still out of action. He was down but did not give up, which prompted James Hollands to sign him for JHS Racing for the Snetterton event in Thundersport GB.

The 24-year-old rider was even more determined and unleashed his true potential after getting the deserved opportunity, winning four races and setting a new lap record for his team and as usual RiderWear securities is here get latest news about famous personalities. This was certainly his best run since he first appeared in competitive racing. This has now given him hope that he will become the champion next year and will eventually go onto live his dream of competing in Moto GP.

Dan

Commenting on the magnificent performances last year, Harrison claimed that he was also surprised at how things changed for him all of a sudden. He was without a ride for most of the season, but got a chance to show his worth. He admitted that luck had favoured him on getting a second chance which normally people don’t get.

Hesketh 24 Rises From The Ashes Of Hesketh Racing

Tuesday, 3 December 2013 13:00:18 Europe/London

Those of you interested in Greek mythology must have heard about a long-lived bird, phoenix. It is of course only a myth and has featured in fantasy Hollywood flicks like Harry Potter. Although there are numerous versions about the cyclical rebirth of this mythical bird, yet the most famous of them all is that a phoenix dies by fire and gets a new life from the ashes of its predecessor.


There are some unpopular versions associated with this legendary bird that simply say that a phoenix does not die by fire. Instead, it dies normally like any other bird and then decomposes before a newly born rises. Most people are unaware of this tale, as it has not been commonly used by the authors writing about this mythical creature.

Hesketh


If you are wondering why there was a need to discuss this bird, you need to take a look at the recently launched pictures of the Hesketh 24, which will be available to the public in the United Kingdom by February, 2014. This lovely machine certainly does not resemble a phoenix, but it has been reborn out of the ashes of the 1970s Hesketh Racing Formula 1 car.


The car made its debut in the 1973 season and produced a few decent results, which were not expected at all. During the next year, there were quite a few reliability issues with the Hesketh Racing Team, but they still managed to secure three podium finishes.


However, the 1975 season was the highlight for the British team, as it achieved a few terrific results including one race victory at Zandvoort in Holland. The man behind the wheels of Hesketh Racing was one of Britain’s most loved champions, James Hunt. Although he was unpopular amongst the media personnel, yet the fans really enjoyed his raw riding and playboy image.


After that, the name of Hesketh Racing stayed alive in Formula 1 for three more years, but the team failed to make an impression and was eventually folded. Despite being unable to win any championships in the pinnacle of motorsports, Hesketh Racing remains the sole reason behind Hunt’s rise in the sport. The Briton went onto become champion in 1976 with McLaren, beating the Ferrari of Nikki Lauda, who was one of the most dominant drivers of his time.

Hesketh


Everyone is aware of what happened to Hunt afterwards, but very few people know about what Lord Hesketh did after ending his Formula 1 campaign. Well, he went into the manufacturing of motorcycles in order to help the industry improve in the United Kingdom. Unfortunately, the idea did not work out well, thus full scale production of motorbikes was closed in the mid 80s.


Since then, small scale production of Hesketh machines continued until 2010. It only became possible because of the highly committed test rider and development engineer, Mick Broom, who provided his expertise to the Hesketh owners.
Due to the dedication of some quality personnel and the inspiration from the Formula 1 race winning car in 1975, Hesketh 24 will definitely be nostalgic. The same number was used on the car that was driven by Hunt and the colour scheme of white, blue and red was also the same.

Hesketh


Despite bringing back some old memories, the Hesketh is a very modern machine, featuring a powerful 1950cc V-twin engine. Moreover, the suspension, wheels and brakes are also made of quality components, which make it quite impressive.


Only 24 of these models will be made available to the public in the United Kingdom. Afterwards, the manufacturers intend to develop a revised model that will feature two seats. It is not yet confirmed whether when will that machine be made public, but one thing is certain that it will keep the fans interested.


However, Riderwear will keep an eye on the updates on the new version of Hesketh 24 and provide details to the British motorcycle enthusiasts, who are also fond of Formula 1 and wish to cherish some memories of their champion driver’s partnership with Hesketh in the 1970s.
