5 Benefits of Riding a Motorcycle

Posted by Ben Davidson about 2 months ago

Some people prefer cars, but for those who don't there are motorcycles. Motorcycles don't just look and feel fantastic; they also have several great benefits that can enhance your life and improve your experience on the roads. Whether you need to speed through traffic or fix up your machine and avoid garage charges, a motorcycle is the way to go. 


They're a Good in an Emergency

You never know what situation life might throw at us, it could be an accident at work, in the home, or someone who needs to get to the hospital fast. Normally you would put them in a car and drive, but there are all sorts of potential delays, it depends what time of day it is for the roads, and there might not be anywhere to park. That's where a motorcycle becomes useful. It's not just a hobby; at times of crisis, it can be a lifesaver – literally. 


They're Long Lasting

When you buy a vehicle, you generally look for two things; you look at its age and its mileage. At least that's true for cars. With motorcycles it's harder to put an age on them, they have very long life expectancies in comparison to other vehicles. Typically a car will last you for 20 years max that's if you're willing to replace parts and maintain optimal servicing. Motorcycles can easily last twice as long with less of the upkeep. 


You Become a Better Car Driver

Driving a motorcycle is more dangerous than driving a car. You are more exposed to risks such as absentminded car drivers and road conditions. However, driving a motorcycle makes you more alert to the hazards of the road and improves your overall driving ability. When you switch to car driving, you will notice a significant improvement in your awareness and reactions. Having driven a motorcycle, you will be more sensitive to road conditions and driving behaviour, making you a better and safer driver. 


It's Simple to Get a Motorcycle License 

Unlike a car license, a motorcycle license is easy to obtain. You still might have to put in the hour to learn how to ride it, but you will be licensed from early on meaning you have plenty of opportunities to practice. Every state in the US has different rules regarding motorcycle licences. Generally, you will have to obtain a permit first. Obtaining this permit requires a short written test and an eye exam. Once that is done, however, you will have a permit for six months, and you learn ropes in controlled zones such as parking lots. 


They're Easy to Fix

It might take a little bit of time and effort to fix your motorcycle yourself, but it's well worth it and far easier than what's required to fix up a car. Although it might look like it sometimes, motorcycles are not complex machines. Once you understand some basic practices, like Motorcycle Suspension Setup, the process of taking them apart and putting them back together is straightforward. There is a reason for this. Unlike cars that are sometimes made to be awkward to fix for marketing purposes, motorcycles are designed to be fixed by their owners.
