If you’re a motorcycling enthusiast who enjoys the exhilaration offered by two-wheeled forms of transportation but who doesn’t necessarily want to worry about the effects of gravity and physics that accompany such vehicles, then consider the three-wheeled Can-Am Spyder instead.
I took my first ride on one of these unique vehicles at the International Motorcycle Show in Long Beach last week, on the same day that Danica Patrick was there for her #FirstTime on a Can-Am Spyder. I am not an experienced motorcyclist -- okay, I admit, I’ve never piloted a motorcycle at all -- so I had a bit of a learning curve. While my first experience might have been a little bumpy as I learned to steer and control the throttle at the same time, I didn’t have to worry about dropping a motorcycle on its side, or learn the physics of counter-steer. While some of the bloggers with previous motorcycle were quickly proficient piloting the Can-Am Spyder around the coned course, let’s just say I’ll need a little more practice before I dare venture out onto public streets.

Nissan went after families when remaking the Pathfinder last year. This somewhat trucky SUV morphed into a kinder, gentler crossover with an uplevel interior that can carry seven passengers and, at the same time, tote up to 16 cubic feet of cargo; there’s even way more room when you have fewer riders.
What could be better? Nissan realized that many women with children are also looking for the better fuel economy, so has now expanded its Pathfinder lineup, adding the 2014 Nissan Pathfinder Hybrid to the list of 14 available models that include both front-wheel drive and all-wheel drive (4WD) versions.

It’s that time of year: late fall and early winter are the peak times to beware of deer in the roadway, and we know you don’t want to hit one.
Deer are abundant in the fall and winter because it's both hunting and mating seasons when deer are more likely to roam outside their normal territory. Pay attention to "deer crossing" signs--they’re usually installed in areas where deer are already known to be abundant. Scan down the road and off to each side and pay particular attention at dusk and dawn, when such animals as deer, elk, and moose usually venture out to eat. If you’re driving at night, watch for pairs of small glowing lights on the side of the road that could be animal eyeballs reflecting the light from your headlights.
