Your First Motorcycle Experience!

Published on June 26, 2014, by in My Experience's.

You’ve just bought your first motorcycle from a dealer – exciting! However, getting it safely home is not as easy as it may sound. Motorcycle dealers are situated in congested city joints with many complicated routes to follow. This makes it even harder if this is your first motorcycle ride. The initial thing before buying is to book driving practical test and get your license. With a good plan, you can enjoy your first ride experience. Most dealers provide delivery services at a fee but this depends on how it’s calculated because if you live far from the dealer, you might end up paying too much. While the other alternative would be to ask an experienced friend to help, it’s a good thing to experience your first unforgettable ride.

Things You Needs To Know First

1. Plan your journey – know the map of your town beforehand by using Google maps or by the traditional ways of walking through the route. Ensure that you mark the straight roads to learn the weight of your bike that you’ll balance and power.

2. Avoid the traffic- if you’ll be picking your bike during working days avoid the rush hours. Early morning hours of Saturday and Sunday are the best hours during the weekends.

3. Keep to simple routes – follow the routes you are familiar with and don’t try a new short cut. Avoid distractions as much as possible.

4. Learn the controls – before you mount up your new bike understand all the controls. Find out where the ignition is located, how signals work and adjust the side mirrors to your viewing advantage.

5. Check the fuel – most people forget to check out this crucial element and end up pushing their motorbike to the nearest petrol station. Generally, a dealer should provide a full tank.

6. Positioning on the bike – sit on the bike and try raising the bike off the side stand and push into place.

7. Sample the clutch and brakes – while the engine still off, feel the pressure needed to release and apply them. Get a feel of both brakes by rolling the bike slightly forwards and braking and try on the rear side.

8. Start the bike – Put helmet and ignite the bike and use the “pilot” check list acronym learned in your driving school.

Your new bike will feel a bit different than the one you used during training. New riders find it heavier and more powerful. You’ll need to take it easy and go gently without pressure or frustrations.

Some more tips on your first ride

1. Check the traffic and don’t rely on the traffic around you to check out for you.

2. Ride by keeping your eyes to the road and not the bike.

3. Listen to how the bike revs and pay attention to any unusual sound when you accelerate.

4. Other road users don’t notice motorcycle riders so be visible by choosing safer lanes and creating cushion space between other users.

5. Once you are safely at home, don’t put the bike cover on until it cools down.

Practice enough times at the park until you have learnt all the particulars on your bike. Have a safe ride!

Restaurants to Visit When in New York

I recently visited New York a couple of months ago and it is a very popular tourist attraction for all, the big buildings, the yellow cabs, the hole New York experience is great but at some point your going to want to visit a restaurant I find out what the food is like. So I have devised a list of  3 restaurants that have a 4 star rating.

Del Posto – This is an up scale Italian Restaurant near the high line. It got 4 stars from Sam Sifton who said: ”Del Posto’s is a pleasure that lasts.” But for this four star experience it will knock you back $115 for a five course meal.  (more…)


Designing My Front Room

Published on December 9, 2013, by in My Experience's.

In time for Christmas I am doing a few things to my front room so that I can receive some lovely complements. I’m going to paint my walls a crisp white and do a brown feature wall and maybe put a painting or two up.

I’m also looking to get some new pillows and I heard a great tip was to but big pillows and small pillow cases so the pillows look stuffed to the max and not saggy to give it a luxurious feel.  (more…)


Rory Mcllroy talks of the mental pressures that come with golf

Rory McIlroy has slipped from the top rankings to six after not winning anything in the year 2013 and now says that the mental pressure of the sport can outweigh the physical pressures and sypathisis with cricketer Jonathan Trott who withdrew from the England team after suffering from a stress-related illness.

McIlroy said: ”It’s sad to see something like that happen and it just shows what a mental toll sport can take on you sometimes,

“Hopefully he gets home and spends some time with his family and recovers and can come back…


“As sport becomes so big and there’s so much pressure and so much on the line, it’s becoming more and more common that these sorts of stress-related illnesses are happening and it just shows how much of a mental toll it takes on you sometimes.”

But he does understand that the pressures on cricket may be far higher than those of golf where they experience a more friendly environment with banter.  (more…)


Handy Products to have

With the market being incredibly competitive there is always a product that offers an innovative, alternative to set them apart from the competition and it is great for people like myself who unique products with purpose below are some that I have been most impressed by.

The Magic Opener – This effectively a bottle opener but its not your standard bottle opener and instead of just having a function for just one type of bottle it has four including for cans. Sometimes opening bottles and even cans can be a struggle but not with this bottle opener and you stick it on your fridge at any time for use. It is great for people who have arthritis in hands.

Radfan – This is a great product that can save people plenty of money. It works by pushing the hot air from your radiator across the room. This product is not as well known but it is a great product that saves money.

LEDoorHandle – This is a door handle that lights up at night so you can see where your going and find your exit of the room. It is a great idea because how many times have you switched of all the lights then you can’t see where your going.


Rescue Dawn: A Great Film I Watched

Last Weekend I had the great pleasure of watching Rescue Dawn which was released in 2007 and it has taken me this long to discover this amazing piece of work.

The leading character was played by Christian Bale who’s performance was tremendous and carried the film and kept me interested.

The film is set during the Vietnam war where Bale’s character is an air pilot but during a mission he crashes and is left in the jungle all alone until he is captured and held prisoner.

From here a devises a master plan to escape and manages to pull it off and from there it is just one big struggle for freedom.

This is a great survival film and I would recommend to all to go and watch it.


My Paintballing Experience

Published on June 28, 2013, by in My Experience's.

Following my visit to California me and the boys decided to take up the sport of paintballing, a very active and fun sport that have a range of different games you can play within such as team elimination and capture the flag.

Being the competitive guy that I am me and my friend mike decided to buy some top of the range guns from to give us the edge in the in the paint balling game. We both bought the Empire mini’s along with some empire paint ball gear which are extremely lightweight which allowed us to move around quicker.

Zephyr Paintball store was great they had a huge selection of brands to choose from and if you are looking to buy any paintball equipment I would strongly recommend buying from them.

My other friends decided that they would use the guns they were given at the place and it proved that we were the smarter guys because we managed to hit people the most between us and won all the games.

Now I have this paintball gun that I am sure I will get to use again and we are talking about going again maybe in London.
