Cars are satisfying for their comfort and sure some of them can drive fast too. Yes, cars are great with the luxuries of air conditioners, music systems, personal space and the fact that you can sing at the top of your voices thinking no one will hear you but when the question arises, where thrill and talking to the wind matters, cars can’t match the shear exhilaration of a motorbike. Motorcycles have a lot more to offer than you can think. Here is why you should invest in a motorbike over a four wheeler.
For the thrill of it
One of the most distinctive things about riding a motorbike is that nothing feels like it. The thrill can be a “Shut up and take my money!” factor as to why you should buy a motorized bike in the first place. The involved risk further heighten the thrill factor. Put simply, riding any bike with an engine capacity north of 600cc is an adventure sport in itself! The performance per Benjamin’s you’ve shelled out is higher than virtually any kind of vehicle.
Cheaper to run and Environment friendly
A motorcycle would run on less than half the gas a car would burn up in smoke. Motorcycle riders are therefore world leaders in conservation o and reduce dependence on gas imports. In short, it’ll save you frequent trips to the pump that are unavoidable in a car. Whether you care about it or not, the carbon footprint of a motorbike is far lesser than a car and then there is nothing wrong about being kind to mother nature every now and then.
Easier to maintain
There are just two wheels to replace not four when time calls for. The engine is much more accessible and if you can live with grease under your nails you could even change the spark plugs and battery yourself.
Easier to park
A motorcycle takes up only one third the space a car would take to park. Moreover, a bike can easily be parked even in the busiest of places. One can easily park a hundred or more motorcycles in a space meant for just thirty cars. You can choose to just laugh at the face of bulky SUV owners! To add fuel to the fire, many parking lots give free parking to bike riders and with a shorter turning radius, parking a bike is piece of cake.
A 250cc motorcycles can outperform any commuter car with ease. Sure, on the higher end an exotic car can match the performance of a Ninja or a Hayabusa, but they don’t come cheap and cost anything from 20-30 times the cost of a motorcycle with similar top speed. Motorcyclist can run between the lanes, switch lanes faster and can navigate through traffic much faster.
In the sense that a motorcycle rider don’t text on their cell phones while riding and the fact that a competent rider can evade accidents better as he can see more and the controls like brakes are easier to reach on a motorbike and the reaction times are faster. This does not evade the fact though that an accident that just puts a dent in a car could land a rider on a hospital bed but the fact that a riders field of vision is further and wider than that of a car driver makes them safe as they can avoid an accident happening in the first place.
Motorcycle riders can get really cozy and warm and in case you want to get really close to your passenger, just pull on those brakes hard at the next stop!
Sense of belonging
Motorcyclist often feel that they are a part of a big community of riders. A bond that all riders share gives a sense of security that transforms the rider as a person. Riders are often more outgoing and friendly than car drivers.
Bikers are cool
Admit it, there is something about motorcyclist! A guy (girl in leather pants, even better!) walking into a bar with a helmet under his arms, invariably radiates a swagger and a sense of cool that just isn’t the same as rolling up in a car. With the right looks and the gang image of motorcyclist, they’ll know you are not the guy they want to mess around with. Motorbikes take you a step closer to cool!
Sense of freedom
Motorcycle riding gets you out in fresh air and you can smell the pine trees and not the deodorizer hanging in the car. There is no better way to escape than ride on two wheels. The sense of freedom is complete on a motorcycle and then there is that saying, “riding doesn’t transport you to a destination; it is the destination.”
There are countless more reasons why you should be riding a bike. Hop onto one and discover for yourself!
