Riding a motorcycle is a common past time and hobby no matter where you go in the United States. For some people, riding a motorcycle could even be considered a passion. A lot of hard work goes into riding a motorcycle, from obtaining a motorcycle license by taking the required classes to practicing on the road. However, there is more to riding a motorcycle than just how you ride it (though that is where the joy factor comes in), such as the care and upkeep of the bike itself as well as a number of safety precautions that should always be taken when you get on the road on your motorcycle.

For one, it is important to wear the right motorcycle apparel for men or the right motorcycle apparel from women.

Boater’s Guide to Choosing the Best Non-Skid Flooring

Written by Recreation Magazine on May 15th, 2018. Posted in Marine carpet for boats

There are about 49.81 million fishermen and anglers in the United States. And of the 9% of Americans currently considering taking up fishing, 38% are interested in fishing as a form of stress release, according to the Recreational Boating and Fishing Foundation and the Outdoor Foundation report. But whether you own a boat and are a seasoned fishermen, or you’re a beginner who’s still learning the ropes, you’ll have to take proper care of your boat in order to optimize its efficiency and safety. One important aspect of boat maintenance when it comes to angling is ensuring the boat maintains a solid and non-skid surface to provide as much safety as possible. Here are just a few tips for choosing the right non-skid flooring for your fishing boat.

Marine Grade Carpet
Marine carpet for boats is designed with stability in mind, giving it a place right in the middle of the non-skid flooring scale. Plus, unlike other boat flooring options, water will not damage or deteriorate the non-skid qualities of marine carpet for boats. However, marine carpets can sometimes hold in water longer and take longer to dry, which may increase the risk for a fall in another area of the boat.

Teak
When selected and installed with the grain going parallel from the ramp, untreated teak can typically provide superior traction over some fiberglass options. A substantial amount of the water will run off, but the wood may remain relatively damp and decrease traction for the short term.

“When completely dry, teak lives up to its old-school reputation for grip. However, when traversing a damp deck in the same direction as the grain, you can’t count on the same traction. Even when wet, teak offers the same degree of traction as either fiberglass nonskid,” writes Jim Hendricks on Boating Mag.

Ultimately, understanding the many different options for boat flooring is the best way to find the one that best meets your needs, especially when it comes to needing a safe and reliable non-skid surface on which to enjoy your angling adventures.

For such dangerous jobs dealing with criminals and their activity, police men and women require body armor in order to protect them from serious injury. During the last decade there were more than 60,000 reports of assault on police officers per year. Several lives may have been saved because of the protection that tactical gear provides. In New York, 87 police officers have had their lives saved by bulletproof body armor, tracing back to 1978. Depending on type, specialty, and brand, body armor can be made out of several different durable materials. The most common material is kevlar, which is an extremely strong fiber material mainly composed of plastic and woven together at high temperatures, resulting in a stiff plate. Kevlar is said to be more durable than woven steel.
