Motorbike Advantages

There are probably all kinds of things going through your head if you’re contemplating a switch from a car to a motorbike. How are you going to cope on two wheels? Will you enjoy driving one? What are you going to miss about your trusty Kia Sportage?

One thing is for sure, there is no doubt you’ll miss some aspects of driving on four wheels. However, it is all about weighing up the pros and cons to decide whether a motorcycle is the right choice for you. To aid you in your dilemma, we have listed some of the key advantages you’ll benefit from if you do opt for a bike.

Kiss goodbye to traffic jams – Have you ever noticed someone on a motorbike cutting through traffic like a knife through butter while you’re sat there wondering if you’re ever going to get out of first gear? Well maybe that could be you! Of course it’s not always that simple in every situation but in the majority of traffic jams you’ll be able to carefully weave your way through the lines of traffic as if they were not there. It can save you a hell of a lot of time if you regularly drive in rush hour.

Speed junkies are in for a treat – There’s a good chance that one of the key reasons you’re thinking about selling your reliable Volvo XC70 and buying a motorcycle is for pure speed and excitement – and don’t underestimate just how well a bike could fulfil these dreams. Most motorbikes accelerate from 0 – 60 mph in just 3 seconds, which will blow your mind if you’ve been driving on four wheels for your entire motoring life.

Save on fuel – We all know how expensive fuel is these days, especially considering we tend to drive almost everywhere in modern times. A motorcycle is essentially an engine on wheels and weighs a lot less than a car which in turn makes it significantly more economical (generally speaking). Even some of the most frugal city cars such as the Skoda Fabia can only boast an average MPG of around 85, whereas many bikes offer up to 130mpg.

Be your own person – Do you ever get tired of being the one who drives for the night, having to pick everybody up and drop everybody off, restricting yourself from having a drink? Well you won’t have this problem again if you opt for a bike as the most you can take is one passenger!
