Six clues to judge when it’s best to not ride

America is a big, sprawling place, vast enough that no one can cover all of it in a lifetime. It is easy to be thirsty, to want to ride every inch from the blue stone shores of Maine to the wide expanses of Nevada. But sometimes it’s best to leave those miles unridden. Everyone has different thresholds for when it’s too hot, too cold, or too wet to ride. The same goes for state of mind, your health, and your level of conditioning. When do these variables form enough of a distraction to merit leaving the bike in the garage? When does exposure to riding conditions make the risk greater than the reward? Here’s where we might draw the line.

Learn about when it may be appropriate for students to say no . It is OK to say no when somebody is asking you to step outside your true responsibilities and outside your comfort zone to take on a task that is dangerous or one that will overload you and affect your academic work and your reputation.

Finally, we have this 1976 AMC Pacer. It is a quirky car that drives even worse than it looks, but it is wearing its original paint and the seller voluntarily dropped the price by 0 during the test drive. I laughed a little as that strange little car drove away and a voice in my head said , “you really need to

Nasty Weather

Riding in rain is no big deal if you slow down and are adequately prepared. A forecast of torrential downpours or gale-force winds, however, should have you rethinking your ride or reaching for the car keys.

Extreme Heat

Temperatures reaching triple digits can lead to hyperthermia, especially if your skin is exposed to the sun and hot wind. Vented gear and a hydration pack can help, but there’s no shame in bagging a ride until the evening when temps have become more manageable.

Chill Factor

Riding in 50 degrees Fahrenheit doesn’t sound too bad, but there’s a reason cold comes at you so hard on a bike: windchill. Add 65 mph of hair-waving breeze through your gear and exposed parts of you will feel like they’re riding through 39-degree weather. The longer you’re exposed, the greater the likelihood of hypothermia. Bottom line, if you’re going to ride in the cold, dress the part.

Don't Call It a Trike: Why We Love Yamaha’s Double-Front-Wheel Motorcycle

  Don't Call It a Trike: Why We Love Yamaha’s Double-Front-Wheel Motorcycle It's not a trike. It’s a blast.But Yamaha has a history of taking chances for no obvious reason, only to end up being completely right. “We wanted to make a motorcycle with more grip,” says Leon Oosterhof, Niken’s product planning manager. The company didn’t start out thinking they’d build a three-wheeled bike, but “once the solution was set, we decided we definitely needed an extra front wheel.” Most companies won’t turn a screw before conducting years of consumer-trend studies. Yamaha didn’t think twice.

This year a number of my friends made resolutions to “only say yes to those activities I really want to do” or “to only take on the number of projects I can handle without driving myself nuts.” Most students I know are in the same boat - planning to conquer about 1,000 projects this year - which is guaranteed

By default, we can say No to a guy when we don't like him or Marriage was done and finally he again came to me and said "shall we go out for a ride ?" Yes. The 'no' you say must have force behind it. It should have an impact, or else you might find yourself in similar situation again.

State of Mind

Moto therapy can do wonders for a person’s mood, but swinging a leg over the saddle when you’re irate can skew otherwise good judgment. Pent-up anger, disappointment, or frustration can be enough of a distraction to delay decisions and fuel foolish behavior.


Sometimes your body just isn’t up to the task of operating a motorcycle. This is often the case when you’re really tired, recovering from illness or injury, or when other medical issues arise. Keep your key pocketed if recovery includes strong meds.

High Risk, Low Reward

It’s easier to accept the risk of riding a motorcycle when the reward outweighs the risk. If your commute is a perilous nightmare, then you may want to reserve your two-wheeled outings to the weekends. Sometimes quality trumps quantity.

Harley-Davidson’s 2 Electric Concept Bikes Are Ready And Riding.
Riding videos show Harley’s lightweight concept bikes are potentially ready for prime time All the buzz of late has been on the bold new LiveWire, but what if we’re missing the forest for the trees? What if LiveWire is a smokescreen? There’s huge value in producing a striking high-tech electric motorcycle as a statement model, but let’s consider who this bike is for. It just doesn’t feel like a viable option for younger Gen X or Gen Y types with high debt-to-income ratios and, form-wise, feels too intimidating for beginning riders.
