There are over eight million registered motorcycles in the US. That may sound rather impressive, but pales in comparison to the number of car drivers: 263 million.

Going on the numbers, then, it’s fair to say that motorcycles deserve a little more love. Perhaps you are a motorcyclist who has yet to discover their passion; or maybe you just don’t know how very beneficial motorcycles can be. Read on and you’ll discover why two wheels might just be better than four…

#1 – Fuel economy

Motorcycles have truly fantastic fuel economy, especially when compared to cars. Some motorcycles offer an MPG rating of over 150, which is truly impressive, and would save you a small fortune over the course of a year.

#2 – Motorcycles are better for the environment

Due in no small part to their enhanced fuel economy, motorcycles are generally considered to be better for the environment. While they still primarily use fossil fuels, they at least use less than their four-wheeled counterparts.

#3 – The potential for better focus

If you have a problem with being distracted while driving, then a motorcycle might be just what you need. When you’re riding a motorcycle, you’re not going to be looking at your phone or engaged in a lively conversation with a passenger; you’re going to be focused on the road, 99.9% of the time.

#4 – The feeling

Riding a motorcycle is undoubtedly more involved than driving a car. You’ll feel the movement more, enjoy the road beneath the wheels, lean into and enjoy the bends. Driving a car can be good fun, but riding a motorcycle is all the more exhilarating.

#5 – Ease of road use

Have you ever been sat in a traffic jam and watched, furious, as a motorcycle slinks between the cars and skips through the traffic? Most motorists have, and while it’s irritating, it’s also something that you could do. If you’re fed up of sitting in traffic, there’s no doubt that you’ll be able to keep moving more with a motorcycle. Furthermore, this behavior is completely above board, so feel free to ignore any angry motorists who are envious of your newfound freedom!

#6 – Motorcycles are simpler machines

Cars are getting more and more complicated every year, with thousands of electrical components that even the most competent of amateur mechanics may struggle with. In contrast, motorcycles are blissfully simple, so you could manage plenty of the vehicle management yourself. All you need is parts from the likes of Solo Moto and a few lessons in motorcycle maintenance, and you should be able to manage well from there.

In conclusion

While motorcycles are unable to replace a large family car for everyday use, there’s no doubt they have their benefits for solo errands, travel, and pleasure trips. As the above shows, motorcycles have plenty to offer to the average road user, so they’re definitely worth at least considering the next time you assess your transport options.

Do you think you might be tempted to give motorcycles a try?
