Dodging the Roadkill: When It’s Time To Quit

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – We all started riding for a reason.  It only stands to reason that we’ll all quit for a reason. Whether it from an accident, old age, or we just don’t want to keep doing it. 

I was involved in a discussion the other day about when it’s time to quit riding.  The discussion began with someone commenting on how much more dangerous it is to ride than it used to be.  That’s a no brainer.  The cell phone has been a deadly game changer. 

The guys who were a part of this discussion were riders and former riders.  The ones who had quit had different reasons for stopping.  One, had just had a baby and felt it was time for him to stop the “risky business” of motorcycles.  The other had been in an accident and just couldn’t get back on it anymore.

NASA’s Mars Helicopter completes key tests

 

NASA - National Aeronautics and Space AdministrationPasadena, CA – A number of key tests were passed by NASA’s Mars Helicopter flight demonstration project with flying colors. In 2021, the small, autonomous helicopter will be the first vehicle in history to attempt to establish the viability of heavier-than-air vehicles flying on another planet.

“Nobody’s built a Mars Helicopter before, so we are continuously entering new territory,” said MiMi Aung, project manager for the Mars Helicopter at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California. “Our flight model – the actual vehicle that will travel to Mars – has recently passed several important tests.”
