    While there are some bikers who prefer to avoid riding any time it rains, there are others who brave the weather to continue riding. According to most riding enthusiasts, as long as it is not raining too hard or the rain is not accompanied by strong winds, it is still possible to enjoy riding. Some also commented that as long as you wear the right clothing, you can ride without experiencing any major issues.

    Most motorcycle lovers will agree that the best thing about owning a bike is the freedom it offers. Apart from using it to go everywhere that a car can go, you can also access places that a car cannot go such as down the alleyways. You can park your motorbike very easily and the best thing is that you can travel light and be ready to go in an instant.

    While it is fun to ride your bike when the weather is nice and warm, the same cannot be said of riding in the cold weather. Nothing ruins a great riding experience faster than being cold, wet and uncomfortable. There are many riders who opt to keep their bikes in the garage during winter or when the weather gets too cold. If you do not want to miss out on your regular rides because of the weather, there are ways to protect yourself from the elements.

    Installing a windshield will help to protect you from wind, which is one of the greatest problems riders face. When moving at 60 mph, wind in your face can feel like ice water being dumped on you! Installing a windshield is a simple way to get as much protection as possible as it helps to deflect the brunt of the cold air. The windshield is quite easy to install or you can take the bike to a dealership for installation. Other than this, consider getting riding gear that can make biking in cold weather safer and more comfortable:

    Just like cars, motorbikes have a varied selection of suspension systems. On a bike, these systems are highly engineered to compensate for what's at stake. Today, one of the most common setups is a single rear coil-over shock system with either a single or double-sided swing arm. Motorbike suspension systems consist of many metal parts that move over one another and over time problems may start to arise.

    For instance, there could be a contamination of the oil which causes a reduction in lubrication. When that happens, wear and tear is imminent. If you know what's causing these problems, you can always fix your suspensions up with new parts such as seals, fork bottles and bleeders from Full Throttle Power Sports. Most of the time, you will also need to find a compromise at either end of the adjustment spectrum. Here are some suspension symptoms to look out for before taking action:
