Stay Safe! Try These 7 Tips When You Ride Your Motorcycle In The Rain

Published

on

Some riders think that when the rain starts to come down, so too should the garage door, tucking the bike away until the sun shines again the following spring. It is so obvious to know that water reduces your motorcycle traction on the road as it creates a layer between your tires and the road surface. Then there is the problem of visibility and also the fact that previously non-slippery surfaces and road markings become slippery. That situation is really dangerous.

Unfortunately, those people are missing out on one of the best motorcycling experiences, as riding in the rain can actually be fun, so long as you know what to expect and how to change your riding accordingly. Rain is unavoidable and while you will probably never relish the opportunity to go out on your bike when it’s hammering down, it is not something you should be scared of. If you are fearful of it, it is something that you should really work on because, as we mentioned, you are going to do it at some point. You should try these 7 tips when you are riding in the rain.

1) Avoid Shiny-Smooth Surfaces

Surfaces that are kind of slippery on dry days become perilously slippery in the rain. Stay off of things like painted lines, manhole covers, metal plates, and even tar snakes. If you do find yourself caught on one of these, avoid hard braking or acceleration, just roll over it without any sudden inputs.

2) Find A Dry Line

When available, try riding in the tire tracks of vehicles in front of you. A car’s wheel can act like a plow, pushing water on the road out of the way for a brief moment. Soak up that dry pavement while you can.

3) Don’t Trust Puddles

That fun-looking mini-pond of splash-able joy could be hiding a foot-deep pothole, or who knows what else. If you can’t avoid riding through a puddle, hold the throttle steady, keep the bike upright, and don’t touch the brakes.

4) Keep Your Cool

Stay relaxed, and don’t make any sudden moves. Harsh, abrupt acceleration, braking, or steering can quickly eat up your limited traction. Make all your inputs smooth and gentle. If you have to brake hard, do it progressively, slowly squeeze the lever at first, to load the front tire and compress the suspension, then gradually increase the force until you’ve slowed enough.

5) Loosen Up

Clinging to the bars with a death grip will do three bad things. First, it will tire you out faster, exaggerate the effects of any movements you make, and keep your suspension from working as it should. Remember that your bike is designed to handle small bumps and wiggles, so let it do its job.

6) Give Yourself Time And Space

Take it easy. Reduce your speed, and put more space between you and the vehicle in front of you. Braking distances are much longer in the rain, and you can’t count on having traction when you need it. Plus, you need time to scan the road ahead and choose your lines, so you can avoid all the wonderful things we mentioned above.

7) Dry Gear Isn’t Enough

Waterproof gear is great and all, but the visible waterproof gear is even better. Remember that rain makes it even harder than usual for cars to see you. If your rain gear is all black, invest in a hi-vis vest or other reflective accessories.

(Video) Knowing About ‘Baryon Mode’! Naruto’s Most Dangerous Mode!

Published

on

Naruto in the Baryon Mode is being hailed as his most potent form as of yet. In this state, Naruto’s hair becomes spikier, standing up on its ends with tufts on each side of his head appearing as fox ears. His whisker markings become thicker, with the upper ones on each side curving up below his eyes. The pigments around his eyes become black and stretch up towards his makeshift fox ears, and he takes on Kurama’s red-slit eyes. Although this mode comes at a tragic price, there can be little doubt about the fact that it buffs Naruto’s raw strength to superhuman levels.

The coloring of his own clothes turns slightly darker orange, and he also gains a chakra cape with a black swirl in the middle of his chest. Flowing from the back of his cape are four orange and red in the anime chakra tails, with five more at the end of the cape, each tail has a black line down the center that connects in the middle of the cape as a swirl.

As powerful as Baryon Mode is, it is extremely dangerous if used for too long or recklessly. Doing so will gradually drain at the user’s strength and very lifespan. Because of the extreme risk, the user must not make any unnecessary movements, nor act on any stray thoughts, focusing on only the most calculated of moves to keep Baryon Mode stable. Even more, over-usage of this form comes at even greater risk at Kurama’s life altogether, effectively killing it.

Upon reaching the breaking point, Kurama’s entire being will be destroyed, depriving Naruto of all the kitsune’s chakra and also capacities. However, the removal of Kurama from its jinchūriki will not endanger the latter’s life.

Venom Fans! Here Are 7 Most Powerful Symbiotes In Marvel!

Published

on

We all know Spiderman, the friendly neighborhood but picture this, villains that look almost the same as Spidey! How did that even happen? Randy Schueller couldn’t have guessed what would happen when he wrote Marvel Comics in 1982 to suggest that Spider-Man wear a new stealth black outfit.

After the concept was accepted into the comic, the most significant change to Spidey’s appearance in 20 years would eventually morph into the now-famous alien suit known as Venom, which then snowballed into an entire species of symbiotic organisms. The extraterrestrial symbiotes, technically called the “Klyntar,” have grown in number over the years, forming a unique corner of the Marvel Universe in their own right.

In the Marvel Comics universe, the Symbiotes (formerly known as Klyntars) are a race of alien parasites. Symbiotes encase their hosts like garments, forming a parasitic relationship that allows them to control their hosts’ minds. Symbiotic organisms are also fully conscious and sentient beings.

So here 7 of the most powerful Symbiotes in Marvel comics.

#1- Sleeper

Sleeper is the eighth spawn of Venom and shares many of its progenitor’s skills, including webbing creation and concealment, according to Marvel Comics. The Venom Symbiote kept its pregnancy a secret from host Eddie Brock, and after spawning, insisted that Sleeper be kept safely under supervision at the research facility Alchemax.

While under observation, it was discovered that the Sleeper Symbiote possessed its own unique chemokinesis skills, allowing it to create liquids and gases for a variety of purposes, including psychologically influencing and modifying the emotional state of others in its vicinity. The symbiote became determined to stay near to its father after the events that led to Sleeper’s escape from containment, and it merged into Eddie Brock’s civilian life, adopting the shape of a housecat.

#2- Mania

Mania began as a portion of the Venom Symbiote that was severed in battle and was not a symbiote being in and of itself. This fragment was collected by the mysterious Ararat Corporation and utilized to construct a clone of the original. The Venom clone was finally consumed by the original Venom after terrifying the corporation’s facilities and destroying the scientists within.

While the Venom Symbiote was connected to Flash Thompson in order to become the secret operation Agent Venom, the clone split up and bonded to high schooler Andi Benton, who was one of Flash’s students when he was a gym teacher at Midtown High School in his civilian guise. As a clone of the original, the Mania Symbiote has all of Venom’s abilities, albeit to a lesser extent, and is also far more difficult to control for its victims.

#3- Scorn

Following a horrible adventure with its mom, Carnage’s second child, Scorn, was left connected to Dr. Tanis Nieves as a horrifying parting gift. When the Carnage Symbiote was isolated from its long-term host, serial killer Cletus Kasady, it was chemically lobotomized and collected in the hopes of developing a new line of prostheses.

The symbiote, which had been attached to Dr. Nieves in place of her missing arm, would soon acquire consciousness and forsake her, leaving Scorn bound to Nieves in its place. The Scorn Symbiote, being a symbiote developed from an experimental merger of extraterrestrial biology and Earth technology, can connect with computer systems and absorb and adapt all types of cybernetic modifications and weaponry.

#4-Hybrid

When the doomsday-obsessed Life Foundation kidnapped Eddie Brock and separated him from his symbiote, the organisation forcibly plucked five gestating offspring from the alien organism. Riot, Phage, Lasher, Agony, and Scream would then become symbiotes. Despite the fact that Scream and its host Donna Diego escaped, the remaining four were eventually combined into the gestalt entity Hybrid.

#5- Scream

Scream was the only one of the five Life Foundation Symbiotes who was not assimilated into the composite creature Hybrid. Instead, it and the host, Donna Diego, went their separate ways. Donna’s mind, along with the symbiote’s inexperience and immaturity, gradually turned Scream into an unpredictable and volatile entity.

After Donna was killed by Eddie Brock, the symbiote remained in control of Donna’s animated body for a while as Scream. The Scream Symbiote went on to merge with Andi Benton, the former host of Mania, after it was finally dislodged from her bones.

#6-Anti-Venom

After being separated from the Venom Symbiote, Eddie Brock met Mr. Negative, a criminal gang leader who triggered the remnants of the extraterrestrial in Eddie’s bloodstream, resulting in the creation of a “negative symbiote” known as Anti-Venom. Brock revealed a number of new skills as Anti-Venom, including the ability to heal wounds and cure diseases, which were significantly different from those he possessed as Venom.

Furthermore, because this new symbiote had no mind of its own, Brock was able to maintain complete control over it while wielding it. During the “Spider-Island” incident, the Anti-Venom Symbiote was destroyed after it was used to treat The Jackal’s epidemic mutant virus.

#7-Toxin

Toxin, the Carnage Symbiote’s first progeny, was pushed into the long-running rivalry between its parent and grandparent right away. Carnage wanted to eliminate Toxin because he was scared of another symbiote that could be stronger than him, whilst Venom wanted to mentor and train the new addition to their lineage in the hopes of creating another alien-powered hero.

When it linked with its first host, NYPD officer Patrick Mulligan, his abrupt and unexpected involvement in the ongoing extraterrestrial feud utterly turned his life upside down, forcing him to abandon his wife and infant kid. Toxin was anticipated to gain skills greater than Venom or Carnage as the 1000th in their line, but the symbiote and its host’s inexperience prevented it from ever attaining this potential.
