Preparing for That Awesome Spring Motorcycle Ride That Is Rounding the Corner

AMERiders are here to help you in Preparing for That Awesome Spring Motorcycle Ride that Is quickly Rounding the Corner and gaining on us. For some of you that may have already happened, as you may live in a warmer climate such as Florida like our Website manager does. As Spring rounds the corner it means one thing for bikers: time to hit the road with wheels burning! First things first before you take that first Spring Motorcycle Ride make sure your gear is ready. Don’t worry getting your gear ready for spring is not as difficult as you may think, however, it does take a bit of checking and searching.  Then you will be out in the wind having fun. Here are a few tips that AMERiders thinks will help get you ready.

Check your helmet!

If your (lid, brain bucket, or whatever you call your helmet) is older than 5 years, replacing it is something you might want to consider doing. The Snell Foundation and most of the helmet manufacturers will tell you that glues, resins and other materials that are used in manufacturing a helmet can break down over time. Things like hair oils, body fluids, and cosmetics, as well as normal “wear and tear” can all be contributors to this breakdown. Plus, every five years there are great advances in materials, designs, production methods and the standards that go into making and manufacturing helmets.

You may have heard some of your brothers and sisters say….”I heard that if a helmet hits the ground, it should be replaced.” This old biker’s tale isn’t necessarily true, but it isn’t really false either and it can get expensive. If you dropped your helmet on the garage floor don’t break out your wallet yet. You don’t necessarily need to replace it. Look at the manufacturer’s specs. If it says to replace it, follow instructions.

However, a common practice with today’s helmet technology is that if it’s not visibly cracked after it’s been dropped, then you don’t need to replace it. The problem with that is that is that you can’t see what is on the inside. The best thing to do is to go to your nearest dealership that you trust and have them inspect it. What we mean by you trust, is that you trust to check it and not say oh you need a new one just cause they want the money to sell you a new one.

Gloves – the unsung hero of apparel.

Your hands are just as important as you are, you know this as of you don’t have your hands you can’t ride the bike. Gloves are so much more than “something bikers wear to look the part.” In spring, finding the right motorcycle gloves to start your season are important. The type of glove is important whether Summer or winter gloves will depend on how chilly your Spring actually is in your area of the world.

When Spring rolls around and the temp goes up, it may be time to consider summer gloves. And therein lies a different choice. Do you go fingerless gloves or Kevlar-filled safety gloves? Riding can be a challenge in blistering heat, under the hot melting sun. Wearing gloves during warm-weather riding is important for hand protection, and to keep cool and comfortable, choose the right gloves for the season.

Riding Pants or Chaps

Women’s Leather Chaps With Pink Stripes

The battle lines are drawn. More often than not Americans will don chaps, however,  European and Japanese motorcycle fans seem to wear full riding pants. Is that the only difference? If you throw your leg over a Triumph cafe bike, do you have to only wear leather riding pants? Or if you’re on a Road King, is your only option chaps?

No, course it isn’t it’s your bike it is your choice in what you wear on your legs. When Spring hits, it may be a bit chilly so you’ll naturally have gear. But as the weather warms, you might be inclined to shed the layers. There’s no law against not wearing chaps or pants, but keeping safety and of course comfort in mind. Chaps and riding pants are definitely a safety choice when it comes to riding.

What about the Bike

You can’t forget your bike either is it geared up and ready to go for short or long rides? Some of us like to take those short rides but still, they may be longer than our usual run around town so we need to make sure that our Bike is geared up as well. Things like sissy bar bags, windshield bags, toolbar bags, and saddlebags are important things to help us get ready to ride.

Don’t forget though those long hauls we like to make which call for motorcycle luggage or if your just riding around town don’t forget you can use a backpack as well.

Last but certainly not least

Women’s Biker Boot Black

Boots! Your feet are what help you hold the bike up. They need to have good soles and great tread and needs to at least be waterproof as well as come up over your ankles in case the bike does go over they help to keep your ankles from being totally crushed.

The Bottom Line

As spring blossoms, your gear will help keep you warm and safe. Be sure to prepare for changing climates as well as finding your personal style. AMERiders has plenty of all of the above available for you here. Questions that you do need to ask yourself before you set out on your ride. Do your gloves need to be replaced? How is the tread on your boots? How old is your helmet and how many times has it been dropped? Think about these things and more before you set out on your ride.

Motorcycle Helmets Designs Continued- Defining Motorcycle Helmet Standards, DOT & SNELL

AMERiders brings you the Continuation of Motorcycle Helmets Designs and the Super-Specialized Reasoning Behind Them, with Defining Motorcycle Helmet Standards and an explanation of DOT & SNELL certifications. Let’s go back over a bit of what we said in our last post and then continue on.

The Difference between the two helmets

Between the two helmets, besides the cool Motorcycle helmet designs and sweet race car helmet designs are other things as well. It’s more than just what happens when you bonk your head, it’s also about fire protection. Racing helmets have fire protection, not all full-face helmets that you see are racing helmets. Ameriders has both Racing and full-faced helmets in stock. The Auto helmets’ fire-resistant Nomex liner is not existent in motorcycle helmets because a rider leaves the bike conscious or not.

However, getting out of a racecar is totally different in a crash. The safety system is designed to protect the driver from harm. A caged race car driver takes an extra 15 seconds longer to get out of the car than it does to fly off of a motorcycle. That is 15 seconds of fire protection that could save the drivers life that a motorcycle driver doesn’t have I call that a win.

DOT
DOT approved Sticker

Department of Transportation or DOT Is a US government approved standard which is the most popular helmet type in the country for most everyone except for race car drivers. DOT helmets differ from Snell as they are more shock absorbent and designed at protecting your skull from 90% of impact types. The maximum g-force allowed by the DOT test is 250g’s, and an impact of 200-250g’s to your head would cause a survivable, yet harsh brain injury. These helmets also are favorite shock absorbency because of recent studies claiming that absorbing the force of an impact could be more important than resisting it.

Snell
Defining Motorcycle Helmet Standards
SNELL approved Sticker

The Snell Memorial Foundation is an independent organization established in 1957, named after race car driver William “Pete” Snell who tragically died in 1956 when his helmet failed to protect his head during an accident. Ed Becker is Snell’s executive director has stated, “There are many more motorcyclists than racing drivers, so manufacturers can justify the expensive tooling to produce cheaper polycarbonate shell motorcycle helmets. Race Car helmets are Kevlar or fiberglass because although they’re more labor-intensive to make, the tooling is cheaper. Carbon fiber is top-of-the-line for both Race Car and motorcycle helmets, but it’s years away from trickling down the price range.”

Let’s Continue

Defining Motorcycle Helmet Standards is difficult so DOT and SNELL have different ways of doing things, and as we said in our last post Motorcycle Helmets do trump Race Car Helmets in visibility as they have at least a 210-degree lateral vision to a race car helmet 180 degrees. As Motorcycle riders crouch, sit upright, look both ways and look back, so needing a bigger visor is important so they can see in all positions. When strapped into a Race car’s racing seat and its harness, you’ll be thrilled to have side view mirrors as you can hardly move your head. You can only turn it a few degrees in any direction, so the extra visor space would be a real waste.

“The ‘low-velocity’ tests came about because of concern at FIA and elsewhere that helmets built to withstand very severe impacts might also transmit high levels of shock in less serious impacts,” says Becker. “So we were urged to include some low-velocity impact tests.” (The FIA is an International Motorsports Governing Body).

New Testing

Snell updates its rules regularly and they are due some new ones so there is some new testing to go along with this as well. Testing diversified as we said to go along with this. They added new tests to go along with their current ones such as the “Low Velocity” impact testing, and “Low Lateral” impacts at the intersection of the head forms reference and the transverse planes.

These tests will help as head injuries can also happen at lower speeds. The new test puts helmets through multiple impacts at a lower rate of speed. Also, There was (also) concern that head strikes against lateral edges might fall below the protective zones of the helmets (ear zone). In fact, though, results to date indicate that this is not a real issue either, this is one way they help with Defining Motorcycle Helmet Standards

What are the tests?

You might wonder exactly what tests Both DOT and SNELL do well we did a bit of digging and found out for you.

DOT Helmet Certification
Defining Motorcycle Helmet Standards
DOT helmet certification

In order for a motorcycle helmet to be DOT certified, it must conform to a few minimum requirements, and be able to pass a series of impact tests.

The impact tests are administered by placing a head form (basically a dummy head equipped with measuring instruments) inside it to measure speed and g-forces as the helmet is dropped onto different surfaces from a pre-determined height. Based on the energy that gets transmitted to the head, the helmet is given a grade of pass or fail. Tests are done twice, to make sure the helmet can withstand multiple impacts in one crash.

Other tests are also done, such as a penetration test to make sure the head isn’t impacted, and the retention system is also tested to make sure the helmet doesn’t slide off in an accident.

DOT Helmet Tests

  • Helmet is dropped onto a spherical anvil from a height of 1.83m
  • Helmet is dropped onto a flat anvil from a height of 1.83m
  • Pointed striker is dropped onto helmet
  • Weight is applied to retention system (up to 300 pounds of force for 120 seconds)

The DOT standard is sometimes criticized because it works on the honor system; manufacturers declare a helmet to conform to DOT standards themselves and label it accordingly. Only when the helmet is tested might it lose its certification, and it might already be on the market when it does. However, the penalties for building a failing helmet are very high – up to $5000 per helmet – so there is a strong incentive for manufacturers to do their own testing before helmets are released, which they typically do.

SNELL Helmet Tests

Defining Motorcycle Helmet Standards
SNELL helmet certification

 

Snell issues a new certification standard every 5 years. Snell’s helmet testing is similar to DOT testing, but with additional requirements. They are (including what we have stated above):

  • Snell uses 5 different shaped anvils instead of two
  • Helmets are dropped from multiple heights (all of which are higher than DOTs)
  • Snell tests the chin bar along with the dome of the helmet
  • The visor is also tested, by shooting it with three lead pellets from an air rifle.
How Much Does Certification Matter In The Real World?

Testing in Defining Motorcycle Helmet Standards is valuable, no doubt. However, for the sake of fairness, lab tests take place in a controlled environment and are very consistent and precise as accidents in the real world are chaotic and unpredictable.

So a given helmet could perform exceptionally well in lab tests, however, but fall behind others in a real world, post-crash damage assessment. The reverse could also be true; helmets with a great reputation among riders could be outperformed by others in the testing environment, especially if helmet manufacturers make a point of building to the standard.

In Closing- Which standard should I choose.

This is actually a much debated and even a hotly debated question.

In the U.S., you should go with a helmet that is, at a minimum, DOT approved which ensures your helmet is street legal. You’ll not only have a significant level of protection, but your helmet won’t attract any unwanted attention from the law (which you probably get enough of already!)

While we at AMERiders can’t tell you definitively which one you should go with, we can tell you about what goes into each and to discuss the pros and cons of all of them, so you can make your own decision about which one is best for you.

Remember, no matter what kind of helmet you buy, wearing one is infinitely better than not, if a fall happens on a ride. We urge you to always wear a helmet every time you throw a leg over a bike!

Motorcycle Helmets Designs and the Super-Specialized Reasoning Behind Them.

Ameriders wants to ensure your noggin is safe, which is why we are bringing you Motorcycle Helmets Designs and the Super-Specialized Reasoning Behind Them, as well as many DOT and SNELL helmets in our store.

THE HUMAN HEAD

The head has been smacked, slashed, smacked, cracked, set on fire and well whipped around like Skip-It and still survived. Our beloved motorcycles bounce our skulls off pavement without the slightest consideration for riders who think they that their heads will hold up to a fall. Racecars are unforgiving as well, as they will use your head as a pinball with the steel roll cage and harness as the paddles.

Helmets Evolution
Motorcycle Helmet Designs
Evolution of the Helmet

Both helmets have evolved over the years since they were just leather caps. There only purpose was to help keep your ears intact as the wind rushed past while riding, or racing. They have also been diverging, becoming ever dedicated, and increasingly in their tasks. Their shells and visors to both motorcycle and auto racing helmets are similarly in two very specialized ways to armor up. This would be Snell Certifications and DOT -Department of Transportation Certification.

Certifications

Snell Memorial Foundation, who is the voice of authority in all this is and is a nonprofit group of engineers, scientists, and physicians, who created a new safety standard for auto racing and motorcycle helmets every five years. Fresh rules are due out this year.

Motorcycle Helmet Designs
What some Snell/DOT approved Helmets look like

Snell handles both Motorcycle and Racecar Helmets, very few motorcycle or racecar helmets are just one or the other most are both. Snell Certifications are voluntary by the manufacturer and most North American Racing Series require Snell Rated as well as Full-faced Motorcycle helmets. Motorcycle helmets that are usually both don’t sell as well unless they are full all-over Motorcycle Helmet Designs that draw the riders attention to buy it.

Here is what Ed Becker, Snell’s executive director had to say about impact protection of the two helmets. “I doubt whether there’s any real difference in impact protection between Snell M2015 [for motorcycles] and SA2015 [for cars] helmets.” Either way, a motorcycle helmet is not safe to race and a racing helmet is not safe to ride in.

The Difference between the two helmets

Between the two helmets besides the cool Motorcycle helmet designs and sweet racecar helmet designs are other things as well. It’s more than just what happens when you bonk your head, it is also about fire protection.

12 Days of Christmas and It’s Origin and Meaning!

We at AMERiders are in the spirit of giving! We would like to thank everyone that has helped us, and this is our thank you for helping AMERiders being what it is today. For the next 12 days, we would like to offer up the meaning behind the 12 days of Christmas Song. (one verse for each day).This came to us because the boss loves it and just loves to drive us nuts singing it. Yes, we’ve done the research and we know this starts on the 25th of December, but however you know that we at AMERIders are not normal so we are going to start this the 12 days before Christmas.  We apologize if what follows offends anyone it is not our intention just information that we found online.

Before we go into a song that is stemmed in controversy of what the meaning behind the song actually is we would like to remind you of our Winter Holiday Event, Don’t forget that you get 20% percent off on orders over $50 automatically. With our usual Free Shipping on orders over $50 as well.

On to the meaning behind the beloved song.

The 12 Days of Christmas” is an English Christmas carol that enumerates in the manner of a cumulative song a series of increasingly grand gifts given on each of the twelve days of Christmas (the twelve days after Christmas). The song, published in England in 1780 without music as a chant or rhyme, is thought to be French in origin. However, there are ideas that think this may not be so. It is a cumulative song, meaning that each verse is built on top of the previous verses. There are twelve verses, each describing a gift given by “my true love” on one of the twelve days of Christmas. There are many variations in the lyrics depending on where you are in the world and have been changed slightly down through the years.

The exact origins and the meaning of the song are unknown, but it is highly probable that it originated from a children’s memory and forfeit game.

The best known English version was first printed in English in 1780 in a little book intended for children, Mirth without Mischief, as a Twelfth Night “memories-and-forfeits” game, in which a leader recited a verse, each of the players repeated the verse, the leader added another verse, and so on until one of the players made a mistake, with the player who erred having to pay a penalty, such as offering up a kiss or a sweet. One hundred years later, Lady Gomme, a collector of folktales and rhymes, described how it used to be played every Twelfth Day night before eating mince pies and twelfth cake.

Husk, writing in 1864, stated:

This piece is found on broadsides printed at Newcastle at various periods during the last hundred and fifty years. On one of these sheets, nearly a century old, it is entitled “An Old English Carol,” but it can scarcely be said to fall within that description of composition, being rather fitted for use in playing the game of “Forfeits,” to which purpose it was commonly applied in the metropolis upwards of forty years since. The practice was for one person in the company to recite the first three lines; a second, the four following; and so on; the person who failed in repeating her portion correctly being subjected to some trifling forfeit.

Variations of the lyrics

The earliest known version of the lyrics was published under the title “The Twelve Days of Christmas sung at King Pepin’s Ball”, as part of a 1780 children’s book, Mirth without Mischief. Subsequent versions have shown considerable variation:

-In the earliest versions, the word “On” is not present at the beginning of each verse—for example, the first verse begins simply “The first day of Christmas”. “On” was added in Austin’s 1909 version, and became very popular thereafter.

-In the early versions, “my true love sent” me the gifts. However, a 20th-century variant has “my true love gave to me”; this wording has become particularly common in North America.

-The 1780 version has “four colly birds”—”colly” being a regional English expression for “black”. This wording must have been opaque to many even in the 19th century: “canary birds”, “colored birds”, “curly birds”, and “Corley birds” are found in its place. Frederic Austin’s 1909 version, which introduced the now-standard melody, also altered the fourth day’s gift to four “calling” birds, and this variant has become the most popular, although “colly” is still found.

-The “five gold rings” may become “five golden rings”, especially in North America. In the standard melody, this change enables singers to fit one syllable per musical note.

-The gifts associated with the final four days are often reordered. For example, the pipers may be on the ninth day rather than the eleventh.

Other origins

In England, between 1558 and 1829, it was not legal for Catholics to practice their kind of Christianity in public or private. Being a Catholic was treated as a bad crime. If you even owned a Catholic Bible, you could be put in prison! Catholics were stopped from worshipping because King Henry VIII fell out with the Catholic Church and started his own ‘Protestant’ Church (what is now the Church of England). There were many people who were still Catholics and they worshiped in secret.

‘The Twelve Days of Christmas’ was written in England at the beginning of this time. Some people think that it was written to help children learn about their Catholic religion. In the carol, the days are supposed to represent special symbols and have hidden meanings, because it was illegal to have anything in writing that would indicate that you were a Catholic.

But there’s NO evidence that this is true and it seems most likely just to be a folk song and that the special ‘Catholic’ meanings were added at a MUCH later date!

Song verse explanation.

Also, all the symbols can be used by Protestants and other Christians, not just by Catholics! There was another song called ‘A New Dial’ (also called ‘In Those Twelve Days’), which goes back as far as at least 1625, which gave religious meanings to the 12 Days of Christmas, but NOT so people could practice their faith is secret. If you’d like to know more about this, please go to the 12 Days of Christmas page on snopes.com

12 days of Christmas
Partridge in a Pear tree

The ‘partridge in a pear tree‘ means God. (In ‘The Twelve Days of Christmas’, it can also mean Jesus who died on the cross. In ancient times a partridge was often used as a mythological symbol of a divine, sacred king. Partridges weren’t introduced into England, from France, until the 1770s, which also points to any extra meanings being added later!)

The 12 Days each traditionally celebrate a feast day for a saint and/or have different celebrations: Day 1 (25th December): Christmas Day – celebrating the Birth of Jesus

AMERiders Winter Holiday Event
Four Leaf Clover Guardian Bell

Our Lead-Free Pewter Motorcycle Bells are handmade in the USA. Many bikers believe in the tradition of putting a small bell on their motorcycle. Look around the internet and you will find many variations of the biker bell folklore tale. Various creatures such as demons, evil spirits, gremlins, buzzards, gnomes and many more evil creatures are blamed for all sorts of motorcycle malfunctions during a bikers trip.

Although there are many different legends there are two common points among them. One is that the bell should be hung low on the motorcycle(down to the road).  But things differ again Either or it makes the ringing louder for whatever little evil thing is lurking in the shadows waiting to ruin your day.The other is that it is also believed that the mystery of the bell carries twice as much power when it is purchased by a friend or loved one and given as a gift.Show someone how much you care. Offer them defense against any Evil Road Spirit(s) that may have cause to do them harm! Give them a motorcycle bell and share the Legend of Good Luck it offers to a motorcycle and its rider!  We have many styles of bells pick out a special one for your loved one.

So after you have hung your stockings by the chimney with care, ensure that each one is stuffed with just the right amount of wonderful goodies that they will love. AMERiders Winter Holiday Event can help you find plenty of things to stuff in their stocking that will make them ooo and aah and giggle with delight.

That is right on any order over $50 you will get an automatic 20% percent off.

This is our gift to you for being such wonderful customers throughout the year.

I have always loved the poem The Night Before Christmas and wondered if someone had written a biker version, so I gazed into the void that is “The Google” as an Uncle of mine calls it and found one that I liked and thought I would share it with you. Again, I did not write this it was written by someone else, I couldn’t find a name on it.

‘Twas the Night Before Christmas (Biker Style)

2016 Winter Holiday Event

‘Twas the night before Christmas, And not until Spring,
Would an engine be running, not even a Wing.
The bikes are all sleeping, They’re covered and warm
Batteries are tended, nylon covers their form.

My Bros were all nestled snug in their beds,
While visions of new chrome danced in their heads.
And I in my doo-rag, bike jacket, and boots,
Out shoveling snow, and dreaming of scoots.

Then from the horizon there came such a clatter,
My shovel I dropped, what could be the matter?
Away up the hill, I slogged through the snow,
Looked up at the sky; where’d all that noise go?

A throb from the heavens like straight pipes so hearty,
Gave Summers’ good thoughts, a loud bikers’ party.
When what to my wondering eyes should appear,
But a Hog Ultra Classic, Red trailer in rear.

With a little old rider, so lively and quick,
I knew in a moment it must be St. Nick.
More rapid than Crotchies his Ultra came on,
And he whistled, and shouted, and sang out this song;

“Now, Harley! Now, Big Dog! On Honda and Beamer!
Now Vulcan! Now Injun! On Vict’ry and Trumpet!
To the top of the porch! to the top of the wall!
Now RIDE away! RIDE away! RIDE away all!”

As small bikes that from the semis do fly,
When they meet with the air blast, mount to the sky.
So up to the house-top that Ultra it flew,
With a trailer of goodies, and ole’ St. Nick too.

And then, in a twinkling, I heard on the roof,
The rumble and thunder of pipes that gave proof.
I ran to the house, boots thumping around,
And in came St. Nick all bearded and round.

Dressed all in black leather, from do-rag to boot,
His chaps were all tarnished with road grime and soot.
A T-bag of goodies he’d flung on his back,
And he looked like a peddler just opening his pack.

His shades — how they twinkled! his do-rag how scary!
With chains intertwined, through skulls that were cherry!
His droll little mouth had done many a row,
So the beard of his chin was as white as the snow.

The stump of a pipe he held tight in his teeth,
The smoke had a strange smell; it gave him relief!
He had a broad face and a large fat beer belly,
That shook when he laughed like a bowlful of jelly.

He was tattooed and plump, a right jolly old rider,
So I offered a cold Bud, thought what could be righter?
A wink of his eye as he downed that cold beer,
Gave me to know I had nothing to fear.

He spoke not a word, but went straight to my ride,
And fixed it with Chrome, Horsepower, and Pride!
And giving the peace sign with bikers’ good cheer,
Took off for his Ultra rumbling near.

He sprang on the saddle, his gloves on the bars,
A wheelie he threw then off towards the stars!
I heard him exclaim, as my chest swelled with pride…
Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good ride!
