More Physical Activity and Higher Intensity Physical Activity may significantly reduce Risk of Death in Older Women in the short term

 

Circulation Journal Report

American Heart AssociationDallas, TX – More physical activity and at higher intensities could lead to a big drop in the risk of death in older women from any cause, according to new research in the American Heart Association’s journal Circulation.

Dodging the Roadkill: The Center Of Attention

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – I can only speak for myself when I say that one of prime reasons for owning a motorcycle is it’s image.  Good or bad, the motorcycle has always represented the “coolest of cools,” and the “baddest of bads.”

Marlon Brando, Peter Fonda, James Dean and my all time favorite, Steve McQueen, made the motorcycle the icon it is today.  You can’t deny that sitting on the back of a motorcycle and cruising through town, or pulling into the parking lot, is an amazing feeling.

I’m not saying that I AM the coolest thing on two wheels, I’m just saying that in my mind, the ability to own a bike, ride a bike and represent the culture in some way, IS the coolest thing going.
