For many vehicle owners, the weekend act of washing a car by hand is a therapeutic act as beneficial for the person’s state of mind as to the vehicle’s appearance. That’s good, because frequent washing is also the best way to maintain a new-car finish. But as simple as washing your car may seem, there are some things to watch for so that you don’t accidentally scratch or degrade the finish. Here are some basic car-washing tips. Don’t… wait for a layer of crud to accumulate before washing. Dead bugs, bird droppings, and chemicals from the atmosphere all leach acids that can strip away wax and eventually eat into your car’s paint. If left too long, they can cause damage that requires sanding and repainting the area to correct. Do… wash off dead bugs, bird droppings, and tree-sap mist as soon as possible. Other than this, a weekly car wash will keep the finish in its best shape. In addition, if you live in an area that suffers from acid rain, rinse your vehicle off after a period of rainy weather. Otherwise, acidic chemicals in the rainwater will be left on the surface after the droplets have evaporated, leaving a mark that can permanently mar the paint.                 What kind of products should I use? Don’t… use household cleaning agents like hand soap, dish washing detergent, or glass cleaner on the paint. These aren’t formulated for use on a car’s paint and may strip off the protective wax. Do… use a dedicated car-wash product, which is milder and specifically designed for use on automotive paint. Apply the suds with a large, soft natural sponge or a lamb’s-wool mitt. Please come and speak to us about our wide range of car waxes Grease, rubber, and road-tar deposits picked up from the road often accumulate around the wheel wells and along the lower edge of the body. These can be stubborn to remove and may require a…

  • Learning how to ride motorcycle

    A new rider’s guide to learning how to ride motorcycle with easy to follow steps. To start off we want to give a big thanks to Best Motor Bike Jackets for the great article. The open road is something that calls to everyone. There is no better way to answer that call than cutting through the wind with a motorcycle. You can ride as free as a bird, flying wild beneath passing clouds and over rolling hills. That is – IF you know how to actually ride a motorcycle. Riding can be tricky. If you don’t know what you are doing, you could injure yourself or someone else. On these kinds of rigs, it does not take much to get a serious injury (so make sure to wear a helmet). It is not like getting into a car and taking off willy nilly. When it comes to riding a motorcycle you have to have balance like you would when you are riding a normal bicycle – except everything is flashing by at top speed. The good thing is that balance is pretty easy to control because the power from the motorbike’s accelerator is going to keep you upright. It’s the moments when you slow down, that balancing becomes a much bigger issue you need to worry about. If you are used to driving cars, you will also need to get comfortable with accelerating using your hands instead of your feet. Depending on how quickly you can adjust, this can be difficult. Then there is the actual steering. Unlike a car driving wheeler, you will have to move your arms a bit more and be extra careful not to be aggressive with your turning to prevent spilling off the bike completely. Before you even hop onto a bike, you need to learn a thing or two about motorbike maintenance. No need for total expertise before you ever take off down the winding road, but you should know enough that when you see your motorbike you know if it’s roadworthy or not. One of the biggest mistakes new riders make is not knowing how to care for their bike properly. A badly maintained motorcycle isn’t only a bad investment, but can be dangerous. Some Items to Watch Out for Are: A.) Tire pressure.  Since lower tire pressure will actually make it much harder to steer and handle the bike. This is an easy fix….
