Measuring to Get the Right Size Helmet

By | General Posts | No Comments

J&P Cycles shows you how to measure to get the right size helmet.
For an accurate head measurement, wrap the measuring tape horizontally around your head about 1″ above your eyebrows. Your helmet should fit snugly. Keep the measuring tape comfortably tight in order to achieve the best results. For precise results, measure two or three times. If you get different measurements, take the largest one. If your head measurement falls between two different sizes on the helmet sizing chart, choose the smaller helmet size.

Why Fall is the Best Time to Ride

Autumn is my favorite season to ride, hands down. There is something indescribably romantic about the cool, crisp air and the colorful trees. The combination of the wind in your face, the smells of fall, and the roar from your exhaust stimulate your senses. You can almost feel the electricity in the air as the season changes.

Every fall, I look forward to layering on my new riding gear. The heat of the summer has passed, and it’s now comfortable to ride in full face helmets, leathers, gloves, and boots. There’s no better time to ride than when you can be safe and comfortable at the same time.

Bikes run really well in cool weather, especially older models that are prone to overheating. If you live in the south you know how hot your bike can get in the summer, especially when you are stopped in traffic. The fall provides nice cool air to run through your filter into your engine. Your body appreciates the cool weather too, as you are less likely to get dehydrated.

Going on a road trip in the fall is ideal. There is nothing like riding through a national park or forest after all the tourists have gone and the autumn colors have arrived. Your photos and videos from your trip will be brilliant. This is also the best time to see wildlife, which is great for viewing, but requires you to be more alert and cautious while riding. You’ll also want to look out for falling leaves, as they can create an additional hazard to avoid.

Fall is my favorite time to take a date riding. The season adds a magical touch to the experience. The cooler air makes my passenger want to hold on extra tight.

Autumn is a great time to meet up with friends at a bar or café where you can get your favorite seasonal beverage.

Fall brings some of the best bike shows, events, and group rides of the year. Biketoberfest is always a good time if you can make it to Daytona in October. Bikes, Blues, and BBQ draws a huge crowd, as does the Lone Star Rally. Las Vegas Bikefest is another one to add to your bucket list.

No matter what your riding style or preference, the fall is the best time to ride. Get ready and gear up at J&P Cycles.
