“Live to Ride, Ride to Live,” is perhaps one of the most well know slogan of Harley Davidson and is the motto that many of us live by as we sit astride our bikes each day. The feeling of wind in our faces, the glorious rumble of the bike beneath us and the smell of leather are just a few of the perks that make riding a motorcycle one of the most thrilling and enjoyable experiences.
Riding is of course fun but it is also considered one of the most dangerous pastimes. Of course, the good thing is that a variety of safety precautions can be taken that ensure this fun is just a bit safer. Most of the gear on the market today is not only fashionable but also is designed to keep us safe when we are on the road.

Fuel rates and prices are unbelievably shooting up around the world. Hence, if you want to save on your finances, you must know how to monitor your mileage and make the most out of each liter (or gallon) out of your tank. What’s more, you can save the environment and Mother Earth by consuming less (or just the right amount) of fuel and having a better-fuel mileage.
Clueless? No worries. This article will show you how:
1. Observe your car’s maintenance schedule
Suggested intervals for the maintenance schedule are every 3, 6 or 9 months. But how do you know simply when it’s the right time? The mile/Km count and the temperature of air, oil and engine condition are some indicative factors. If you’re not sure, you can check your car’s manual. Another helpful sign is when you start your car and see a light flashing for 10 seconds. This means that you’ve exceeded the recommended service interval intended for your vehicle.
Keeping your car’s engine and oil in healthy and proper maintenance will minimize pollution emitted into the air while driving.
