Why having a bike is so much more fun

Ever thought of buying a bike, but not too sure whether you will actually get all the enjoyment out of it? Well here is some advice that might just help you make you your final decision.

Some people say that they are strictly ‘car’ lovers and that bikes are not for them, but there is actually a bike available for every type of driver and terrain. Whether you enjoy the open roads, the beach or are a real dirt lover, there is almost always a bike that will satisfy you.

fun_with_bikesOne could argue that owning a bike can also end up costing a small fortune, but the truth is a bike is a lot cheaper to run than a car. Bikes are cheaper to operate, especially with the influx in petrol prices, it almost makes perfect sense (excuse the pun) to ride a motorbike. The maintenance on a bike doesn’t come near to what it costs to service a vehicle and most of the time you can do the servicing yourself, which can end up saving you a lot more.

Riding a bike can allow you to get into those tight spaces where cars can’t venture, parking is easier and turning and manoeuvring in tight spaces is not even a concern. Space is almost never a problem if you own a bike, parking in a small garage or in a narrow driveway is effortless and parallel parking has never been easier.

bike_in_trafficBelieve it or not, but driving a motorcycle can be safer than driving a car. A lot of drivers nowadays are spending most of their attention on smartphones and GPS systems and fail to pay attention to the road. There are more cars swerving around on the highways than bikes, because when you are on your bike, all your focus and attention is on the road and the task at hand, and quite frankly too busy enjoying the moment.


If you haven’t yet experienced the pure enjoyment of what a bike has to offer, then find out what bike is right for you, and see for yourself what you have been missing out on.
