2020 Toyota RAV4 TRD Off-Road: Urban Outfitted and Enhanced

Experienced by Kimatni D. Rawlins

Not to take away from Toyota’s standard family of vehicles, but if I had to choose, then I’m rolling with the TRD variant of any of those models. Representing Toyota Racing Design, the TRD label enhances your vehicle with a rugged appearance package, gritty wheels, and more aggressive accessories. Such is the case with the 2020 Toyota RAV4 TRD Off-Road, which is dominant over its base stablemate.

Our crossover arrived in a Lunar Rock hue with a contrasting white roof, black roof rails, black mirrors, black body cladding, and matte black TRD alloy rims wrapped in knobby Falken WildPeak A/T tires (225/60R18). The RAV4 TRD Off-Road is primed for adventure whenever you seek it. All I endeavored to do was take my bikes for epics rides knowing that the RAV4 TRD Off-Road had no visible limitations. It sits high for proper ground clearance and features Dynamic Torque Vectoring AWD with Multi-Terrain Select, and a TRD-tuned suspension when hitting muddy, snowy, sandy, or rocky trails. Quad pipes are a nice touch as well. Like an animal in the wild, the TRD Off-Road is always ready for action.

Biker Boys: Ride the Rhythm of Specialized this Summer!

Experienced by Kimatni D. Rawlins, www.FitFathers.com

So, we’re in the thick of summer’s heat, and biking has taken precedence over the typical calendar of events. How so, you ask? Due to COVID-19, air travel was reduced dramatically, which shifted many people’s focus back on riding. This renewed interest is the reason why stocks are depleted or low until the fall. Hopefully, you were able to score one or had a chance to reinvigorate your cycle with fresh lubrication and tuning of the brakes, wheels, and cables.

I grew up on two-wheels dating back to my BMX days as a youth in the gritty streets of Camden, NJ. Every kid had a bike, allowing us to traverse from neighborhood to neighborhood until sunset. Some like myself could clear fences from makeshift ramps and wheelie city blocks for as long as traffic allowed. Those were some joyous days. Today, I rekindle some of those memories on my mountain bike. MTBing wooded trails for hours at a time bring back euphoria reminiscent of the 80s. However, recently I wanted to change course and hit the streets and the asphalt trail systems that typically connect various parks and townships. Additionally, many of my good friends and business colleagues congregate for weekend biker boy meetups on road bikes. Therefore, I began looking relentlessly for a hybrid in Large for roughly $800.

S-Works Evade Helmet with ANGi by Specialized

Accessories to outfit your ride should include a seat pack for an extra innertube and wrench storage, bottle cage, mini air pump, and a smartphone handlebar mount for following your maps and music if you choose. For yourself, think about padded biker shorts, lightweight open-finger gloves, and of course, a helmet.

For $275, the advanced S-Works Evade lid with an integrated ANGi crash sensor by Specialized is a prudent and sophisticated bet. Hey, we wouldn’t mind paying extra for safety measurements. The aerodynamic and properly ventilated protection encompasses “win tunnel” development, 4th dimension cooling, Aramid-Reinforced skeleton, soft and lightweight 4X DryLite webbing, and a magnetic buckle system. With heavier helmets, riders can sometimes experience neck fatigue on longer rides. Well, that problem has been alleviated with the Evade.

Additionally, users of this product receive a lifetime subscription to the Specialized Ride app. View for more details.

Young Black Excellence!

Meet my two mentees Amede and Njoka. Both are from Africa and are currently prospering in America. Both play collegiate football, both are studying cyber security, both respect their parents’ authority, both adhere to law and order, and both possess strong worth ethics. “Proud” is an understatement. I’m looking forward to seeing them evolve while contributing to the needs of humanity. So, continue dedicating time to young Black men in this country because they need the support of mentors and father figures more than you can imagine!

June 21-Day Self-Awareness and Enhancement Fast

The plan is simple Kings and Queens. Let’s strengthen our temples, sharpen our minds, and deepen our spirits with a simple 21-Day Self-Awareness and Enhancement Fast beginning Monday June 1st and ending Monday June 22nd. There will be no check-ins or reminders. Self-motivation is the key.

Simple, we will eat normally except drinking only water and decaf herbal teas (no milk, soda, juice, coffee, alcohol, smoothies etc.), no snacks (chips, crackers, popcorn, cakes, pies, etc) and every Friday we will fast for 24 hours drinking water and decaf herbal tea. It should be self-explanatory that no fried or fast foods are permitted. Only clean, wholesome meals. It doesn’t have to be vegan, but if you want, go for it. Just make sure to eat 5 to 7 servings of fruits and veggies daily.

Some of us didn’t have the choice of life extension. We do, so let’s pay homage to our inner beings.

One Love!
