Motorcycles Testing the Mustang Young Adult Rev Life Jacket
B&O Museum gives Baltimore dirt bikers a summer home. But advocates still call for a permanent campus
BALTIMORE – Engines roared as dirt bike riders did wheelies and rode around a gated parking lot on a recent sunny Saturday in Baltimore's Pigtown neighborhood. Riders in B-360, the Baltimore-based organization that teaches the science behind the machines, have been out every weekend since April, making the most of the nearly 2.3 acres to ride, repair and learn about their bikes. The Southwest The Southwest Baltimore lot belongs to the B&O Railroad Museum, which bills itself as “the birthplace of American railroading.” This summer, it’s also the home of Baltimore dirt biking.
As my granddaughter, Mila, outgrew her old life jacket, we searched for a new one that would fit her properly and had the styling a 10-year-old might like. We picked the US Coast Guard-approved Mustang Young Adult REV, model MV3600. This Type III vest is for weights of 88 to 100 pounds and chest sizes from 28 to 32 inches. The soft foam panels offer flexibility, freedom of movement and comfort, and beveled edges prevent cutting in under the arms. A ventilated back provides breathability, and the liner wicks moisture away. A zipper closure and adjustable web straps snug up for security. The bright-white-and-pink upper (with black lower) seems to be in style, and it stands out in the water. It’s also available in a light-gray-and-fluorescent-green upper. The front panel offers attachment points for gear such as a whistle. We tried it in the pool first, and it did a great job of keeping Mila afloat with her head out of the water. Just as importantly, she likes wearing it, which is a relief because California requires life jackets for kids under the age of 13. So, the REV not only ensures safety, it saves frustrating arguments with a 10-year-old. $79.99;

Used car price rises not letting up as predicted, and the peak hasn't come yet .

From August, September saw prices climb 5.3%. The increases coincide with continued difficulties for automakers to build enough cars to meet people's demands. The semiconductor chip shortage, according to the most recent estimates, may not start to stabilize until sometime next year. And only in the first half of 2023 may the industry enter an actual recovery phase. Without enough chips, carmakers will remain stuck as buyers won't be able to find the vehicle they're shopping for.
