Motorcycles and safe driving practices Certain skills have to be mastered in order to drive a motorcycle. The pleasure of driving on two wheels must be combined with safety practices. After all, the smallest of errors can be fatal. Motorcyclists must first of all pay careful attention to their clothing, because their clothing is the only form of protection they have. Just imagine the result of a fall or a crash at 100 km/hour! Wearing a jacket made of leather or an anti-abrasive material is not a luxury, it’s a necessity, whatever the weather. Gloves and boots are other indispensable items in a motorcyclist’s wardrobe. As far as helmets are concerned, full face models offer the best protection. The techniques for maintaining balance at slow speeds, negotiating bends and corners, braking at intersections, and avoiding obstacles must be mastered perfectly — all while keeping to the speed limits, of course. Sharing the road with other users is another important element that will only succeed if everyone behaves in a safe and courteous manner. Being aware of the risks attached to driving a motorcycle and being capable of managing them is to demonstrate an exemplary, proactive attitude, one which will never detract from your pleasure and sense of freedom.

Which Type of Harley Davidson Motorcycle is Best for You You’ve been wanting one for so long. When you hear the roar of the engine, your heart skips a beat. You stop and stare, fantasizing about what it would be like if YOU were sitting in the seat. Before you go out and buy yourself a Harley, it’s wise to do your homework and determine which type of motorcycle is best suited for you. To begin you want to match the type of bike to your riding style, expectations, experience, and ability. You also want to consider how you will be riding the bike. Last, but not least, you’ll want to take into consideration your physical size and abilities. A common mistake many people make is to buy a motorcycle that is too big for them. Obviously, this can result in serious injury or death. It’s important to select a motorcycle that you can skillfully maneuver and manage. Harley Davidson offers a wide range of motorcycles and can accommodate nearly everyone’s needs. Let’s take a look at the various types of Harley Davidson motorcycles: Touring: If you plan on taking road trips, this is the Harley for you. However, if you are a beginner, this type of bike is probably more than you can handle. When these bikes are fully loaded, they can weigh up

to 800 pounds. Harley touring bikes include Road Kings and Glides. Cruisers: Harley Cruisers are a lighter weight motorcycle than Touring bikes; however, they are still heavy and not recommended for beginners. Cruisers are categorized as Softails and include the Harley Fat Boy, Heritage and Nostalgia models. Softails: The term softail refers to a type of rear suspension system installed to absorb shock. Softails were designed to be reminiscent of the rigid mount design of earlier models; but provide a more comfortable ride. Harley Softails are a popular choice for daily riding. Many riders choose the Softail when they want to create their own custom design. Softails are lighter in weight than Touring or Cruiser Harley’s. Models include the Softail Custom, Springer Softail, Heritage Softail, Heritage Springer, Night Train, Deuce, and Fat Boy. Dynas: The Dynas model has a dual shock rear suspension like the Touring bikes and a front end like the Softail and Sportster models. The engine has a rubber mounted support system to reduce engine vibration. Dynas are available with a wide-glide or narrow-glide front end. This type of bike is a good

choice for street riding and appropriate for beginners. Sportster: These are the perfect choice of Harley motorcycles for beginners. These bikes have a smaller engine and smaller frame and are the lightest bikes offered by Harley-Davidson. Sportsters are the only Harley with two engine sizes, the 883 and 1200. They are about half the cost of the big twin Harley’s; making them the most affordable choice the company offers. V-Rod: The V-Rod is newest Harley model and introduces a water cooled engine. The V-Rod motorcycle has the style of an imported sport bike, yet retains the stretched out forward controls that are uniquely Harley. This is a good daily riding motorcycle and makes a good choice for those who are experienced in riding. Buell: Although this isn’t exactly a Harley; Buell sport bikes are made and sold through Harley Davidson. Buell motorcycles are a traditional sports bike powered by an American V-Twin engine. Buell motorcycles are a great all-around bike, suitable for daily riding or shorter road trips. Several engine sizes are available, making Buell motorcycles a good choice for beginners to seasoned riders.

Powered by an impressive electronic fuel-injected 722-cc engine, the 750 AXi is at the front of the pack in this category. The optional power steering ensures increased comfort in any driving conditions. The 500 AXi model is driven by a fuel-injected 493-cc engine. Just like the 750, its optional power steering helps drivers deal with all the holes and bumps encountered on the toughest of trails. The KingQuad family is completed by the 400 FSi and 400 ASi. Since last year these two 400 models have benefited from an electronic fuel-injected 376cc engine, a technology that improves cold- and wet weather starts and increases throttle response at high altitudes, where the air is thinner. The 400 FSi model is equipped with

Suzuki offers the Orzak 250 for newcomers to ATVs. However, if you’d prefer to have fun with jumps, bumps, and controlled skids, the QuadSport Z400 is the engine for you. This year its 398-cc engine has a new, more efficient fuel injection system.

The importance of a well-maintained property

L

ogan Lake offers many enticing activities. Hikers, cyclists, ATVer’s and mountain bikers can enjoy the many trails around the community and scenic lake. Winter activities include snowmobiling, X country skiing and skating on Logan Lake. Local maps are available at the Visitor Centre. Over 25 high elevation lakes surrounding Logan Lake offers world class rainbow trout Àshing. The municipal campground amenities include, powered sites, hot showers and a boat launch. It is located next to Meadow Creek 9 hole golf course and Copper Ridge 18 basket disc golf course. The campground is only 1km from Lakeview Plaza.

The very latest in interior decorating, a home and garden that are the envy of the neighbourhood, a house that doesn’t show its age... Keeping up with this combination of factors could lead to a considerable increase in the value of your property. The upkeep of a home often just involves small yearly modifications and simple jobs. A neat exterior, well-pruned hedges, materials in a good state of repair, and a clear, unimpeded view of the home all add up to a well-maintained property and a proud homeowner. Where the exterior is concerned, maintaining the siding should be your priority, as this will protect your home from bad weather for years to come. The roof is the other part of your home that should never be neglected. For example, the state of the roof could deteriorate if moss is

allowed to cover it. Don’t neglect the concrete surrounding an in-ground pool and always protect garden furniture from the harmful rays of the sun. Did you know that a well-planned yard can increase the value of your property? As they grow, the trees you plant will add to the worth of your home as well as adding to your comfort both outside and inside: trees block the wind in cool weather and provide shade on hot summer days. That can mean a reduction in both air-conditioning and heating costs. So give free rein to your gardening talents by planting trees, creating flower beds, and establishing hedges. Lastly, spread compost to enrich your soil for a beautiful lawn and don’t forget to weed regularly in order to enhance the appearance of your shrubs and flowers.

Let her know how grateful you are Mothers give so much of themselves to their children, from the time they’re babies, through childhood and beyond the trials of adolescence. That’s half a lifetime spent caring for their children! Honoured since antiquity, motherhood represents the source of life and nurturing.

PHOTO: GEORGE DOYLE / THINKSTOCK

Why not make your cherished mother’s greatest wish come true for Mother’s Day? If you and your sibling haven’t been on speaking terms for months, if you’re annoyed with a family member over a trifle, why not bury the hatchet, turn the page, and

try to get along for your mother’s sake. A family reconciliation might very well be the most wonderful gift she could receive. Perhaps you don’t demonstrate the love you feel for your mother on a regular basis. Mother’s Day is the ideal moment to express this love, with heartfelt wishes, gifts, or gestures that will go straight to her heart. If you have a limited budget, offer her some quality time, spent together doing an activity she particularly loves. Or help her out with some chores she finds difficult. At the very least, a pretty card in which you express your wholehearted love for her will surely bring her joy. Another great idea is to develop the habit of expressing your gratitude to your mother and spoiling her every chance you get. It will allow you to build a closer relationship with her, something that might feel great for both of you. Why wait for Mother’s Day to show your affection to the one who gave you life and to tell her how much you love her?

Patio life A warm evening on a restaurant patio, chatting with friends, sipping drinks, enjoying the weather, watching the world go by for a few hours as summer approaches: this is relaxation at its purest!

Ready for the great outdoor cook-off? If you love the outdoors, you may consider cooking and eating outside one of life’s great pleasures! Every thing has a special flavor when cooked outdoors and individual and personal taste will draw you to one kind or another form of cooking. It will be up to you what method to use, amongst electric, propane, coal or wood BBQs. For certain gourmets, the ultimate BBQ taste is when the drippings fall onto the hot coals and the smoke soaks into the cooking meat. For others, there is nothing like food cooked over an open fire, which gives all food its ultimate taste and remains a simple, quick and safe way to cook. The electric grill can be used both indoors and outdoors. You can cook a wide variety

of food on this BBQ as well as searing and keeping food warm. To make your life... and cleaning easy, look for a model with Teflon or non-stick surface as well as a drip catcher. If gas BBQ is your method of choice, choose a model with robust stainless steel burners. Diffusers and accessories can also be made of stainless steel for a longer lifespan. Cooking grills are available in a variety of coatings. Again, stainless steel is very popular because of its easy cleaning; it can also be enameled. If you are a steak fanatic, cast iron might be your chosen coating. To sear perfectly your meat, heat up the cast iron grill for at least 10 minutes before cooking.

There’s nothing like a patio decked out in summer colours where you can escape from daily routine and be outside in the fresh air for while. You’ll find tables outside at dairy bars, bistros, and pubs where you can savour local produce or micro-brews. Patios can be found in urban centres and in rural settings, and many suburban restaurants have patios, too. There’s something for everyone, everywhere you go! Patios are often part of local festivals and host music nights, which brings plenty of character to summer. If you just like people watching, sit with a cold drink on a patio close to the sidewalk and watch the world go by. Whether

you’re on vacation or a well-deserved supper-break, summer is just waiting to be savoured. All you need is to be ready to make the most of Mother Nature’s best, which is more than welcome after those freezing winter months spent cocooning. So launch into the pleasures of summer and park yourself at a patio table!

This summer enjoy the pleasure of a good meal while sitting in the sun.

Outdoor adventures Even if you live in a big city, chances are you don’t have to go far to enjoy the fresh air and beauty of the outdoors. All around you are green spaces, parks, bike paths, creeks and rivers, and flower gardens, even if they’re in your neighbour’s front yard. Getting outdoors is essential for good mental health. It lifts our spirits and boosts our wellbeing. If you can get out to the countryside, you’ll be sure to recharge your batteries if you go for a walk or even a drive on a country path or road. Pack a tent and a sleeping bag, or pack up your travel trailer if you have one, and you’ll be able to prolong your enjoyment of the idyllic spots you’ll find. Depending on the geography, you can hike up a mountain or fish along a river or picnic in the woods. And there’s nothing to refresh the soul like lighting a campfire and enjoying marshmallows with the whole family. Many urban centres have conservation areas that are easily accessible. These are natural havens for flora and fauna and are places where you can quickly forget your own daily worries. Biking is another way to enjoy the great outdoors, on city bike paths or country roads. By venturing outside your municipality you may discover some picturesque areas that you were completely unaware of. You never know!

If staying in town is more practical for you, consult your town’s website or look in the local newspaper to find out about all the activities available close to home. You’ll be spoilt for choice between the municipal swimming pool, tennis or badminton lessons, sports associations, family activities, and organized festivities. Another wonderful possibility for spending an evening underneath the stars is to attend an outdoor concert. These musical events are often held in public parks during summer. Getting outdoors could even be as simple as doing some chores around the yard. If the weather cooperates you could clean up your deck or balcony, cut the grass, or wash the car. You see, you can’t really avoid outdoor living in the summertime! Who would want to? Discover the joys of camping. There’s nothing like it to recharge your batteries!
