Vacation Time!

I haven’t really gone on a vacation for a few years now but this year, I vowed to have at least a few days of R&R or I’ll go crazy!

It’s school break so the kids will make me crazier even more that they are home all the time, lol. Plus, work has gone on a different level and is giving me a lot of stress lately. Thus, several vacations are needed to help me relax a little and enjoy my family.

Cars vs Motorbikes ā€“ Why a Car is Safer

It is often said that riding motorbikes is very dangerous, and that driving a car is a far safer option. This is a highly contentious issue, however there are merits to both sides of the argument. Here are a few key points to consider in the car vs motorbike debate.

Visibility

While driving a car, your degree of visibility is often reliant on the make, model and styling of your vehicle. Vans, 4WDā€™s and trucks have far greater visibility than cars which are lower to the road. When riding a motorbike, the barriers to your vision are far less than in a car, and the riding position instantly gives you an advantage when it comes to visibility. This allows a motorbike rider to assess and react to a potentially dangerous situation in a shorter time than someone in a car with poor visibility.
