Tips for Making Old Furniture Look like New

When I got married, my mother passed a family heirloom onto me that was a piece of old, wooden furniture that had been in the family for generations. Since it was showing its age, I decided to see if I could learn how to restore it. Before I worked on it, I decided to practice on a few furniture pieces I grabbed at a second-hand store. I soon learned that restoring old furniture was more difficult than I expected, but I also learned how much I love to do it! I soon fell in love with my new hobby and am always working on a new piece. I know there are people out there who want to learn how to restore furniture, so I decided to create a blog to share my tips and tricks for learning a new hobby. I hope I can help you learn your new craft!

3 Things to Look for in a Motorcycle Trailer

If you have a motorcycle, you are going to want to purchase an enclosed motorcycle trailer for transporting your motorcycle. Here are a few features to look for when purchasing an enclosed motorcycle trailer to transport your new bikes with.

#1 Low-Profile

To start with, you are going to want to look for a trailer that is low-profile. Trailers that sit low to the ground are going to be more aerodynamic when you are on the road as they should not catch that much wind. Sitting low to the ground will also make the trailer more fuel-efficient as well.

Additionally, a low-profile trailer will make it easier to wheel your bikes up onto the trailer and secure your bikes. You will not need as big a ramp as you do on a high-profile trailer that sits higher off the ground

#2 Security

The second thing that you need to look for in an enclosed motorcycle trailer is security. The trailer should be set up so that there are wheel clocks to keep the wheels on your motorcycle safe. There should also be tie-downs built into the sides of the trailer that can be used to stabilize your motorcycle and keep it upright while it is being transported. It is vitally important that your motorcycle is secure and stable; you don't want it to fall over or get damaged during the transportation process.

#3 Interior Lights

With an enclosed trailer, it can be really dark inside. Although you can use a flashlight to see inside of your trailer, you don't really want to be juggling a flashlight while at the same time trying to move your bike in or out of your trailer. This issue can easily be fixed by choosing a bike that has interior lights.

You can choose interior lights that are motion orientated so that they are only one when you need them. For the best lights, go with a trailer with LED lights. LED lights have an extremely long lifetime and you should not ever really need to replace them based on the limited but crucial use that they will get.

#4 Cabinet Racks

Finally, make sure that your motorcycle trailer is set-up so that it offers space to hang up your other equipment. Make sure that you have cabinets and racks where you can put your helmet and riding gear, as well as the tools that you need to work on your motorcycle. There should be room and adequate storage space for all of your motorcycle supplies inside of the enclosed motorcycle trailer.
