Whether you are buying a used car or a new one, the emotion and excitement remain the same. But while buying a used car, there are some points that need your consideration.

As old cars have been used earlier, the price of each car is comparatively low. But at the same time it carries a history and a mileage that the new car doesn’t have. Therefore, you must follow the below-mentioned checklist if you are thinking of buying a used car.

You should begin with the history of the car. You must have all the information regarding the previous owner of the car. It is very important to know the reason for which the previous owner wants to sell his car.

There could be many reasons, they just want to purchase a new car, any transfer or shifting where they cannot carry their cars or they might be just looking for a change. Just make sure that they are not selling the car because of serious issues.

If you belong to countries like India, keeping in mind the conditions of the Indian roads make sure that tyres are in good condition.

From inside, check if the driver seat or steering wheel is extremely worn, this may be an indication of rough use. Do not forget to check the odometer inside the car. If you feel that it has tampered, you must not buy that particular car.

Externally, you should look for discoloration or misalignment of the car. Check carefully to find any signs that the car has been repainted. This repainting may be done to cover any accident or other damages to the cars.

All You Need To Know About McGregor vs Mayweather

Since Ewan McGregor and Charlie Boorman set off on their Long Way Round motorbike trip, literally thousands of people have followed in their tire tracks. Many have braved it and gone it alone, while most have opted for the guided tour option. This has been great for the guided motorcycle tour industry, with tours varying from basic road riding around UK and Europe to the more extreme with such trips as the UK to China via Mongolia, etc. But, has there been a little too much bravado or too little preparation?

Customers of these guided tours have varied greatly in riding experience, but the majority have relied totally on their guide, with no consideration for what would happen if the guide had an accident or was somehow unable to continue with the tour. It's all well and good saying that the tour would be aborted and refunds were given, but the customers still need to either get to their next destination or get home.

Ewan and Charlie didn't just jump on their bikes and go. They had gone through a rigorous training program before they set off. They had training in first aid, security, map reading, etc. They also had a support team and a large pot of money to bail themselves out whenever they may have needed it. So, why should anyone go on a long distance tour unprepared?

It's not possible to offer the pots of money, but Extra MILe Bike Tours are now not only offering Guided Bike Tours which include instruction in these skills but are also running bespoke courses in Survival Skills, Map Reading and First Aid for Motorcyclists.

Basic courses are being run in Wales, and the advanced courses are run in France, Spain, and Germany.

Extra MILe is seemingly filling a gap in the market preparing people for these long distance tours but also and just as importantly, whether you are planning to ride further afield or stay closer to home, either as a group or on your own, the skills learnt here will be invaluable.

It has been stated that Mayweather's cousin Janelle got a call from the fighter after the stoppage of De La Hoya. She stated that Floyd wants to come back to challenge the pride of the Philippines. Mayweather Sr. also stated that he got a message from his son Monday, 12/8/08, about training with him. But he will still have his uncle Roger in the corner as well. So pretty much, it is a little family reunion.

All I want to know is if this is a fight that Mayweather wants. Pacquaio is no pushover, and he is a lot faster than Mayweather, and also throws a lot more punches than Mayweather as well. The thing is Mayweather hasn't been active since his stoppage over Ricky, the Hitman, Hatton. If Mayweather were to really face Pacquaio, then he will need a tune up fight.

He has just been active for so long, and Pacquiao has already had three tremendous fights this year. Since beating Oscar De La Hoya, I will guarantee that Paquaio will be fighter of the year. He has gone and defeated Juan Manuel Marques in super featherweight, took David Diaz's belt in lightweight, and stopped one of the best known boxers in the history of the sport in welterweight. Those are credentials of a pound for pound fighter. He did everything in one single year.

So lets look at the analysis and see who will be able to pull of the McGregor vs Mayweather fight. Mayweather has had trouble in the past with southpaws. He had definite trouble when facing Zab Judah. But unlike Super Judah, Pacquaio does not tire out as the fight goes on. We will have to see the Mayweather that beat Gatti. If we see that, then I think that he will be able to win the fight. If Mayweather catches Pacquaio with a good shot, he has the chance of finishing him off. The way that people knows when Manny Pacquaio is hurt is when he punches back recklessly.

Manny Pacquaio, on the other hand, needs to do what he does best. That is stay in the pocket and beat Mayweather to the punch. He has the hand speed to do so. Also he needs to throw a lot more punches than Mayweather in the fight. He will have to fire in flurries and give Mayweather not break throughout the whole match. If he does that, he will carry out a victory. That is the only way in my mind that I think that Pacquaio caould beat Mayweather, is to throw more punches than Mayweather.
