Have you ever thought about owning a motorcycle? What’s stopping you? The danger? The risk? What have you enjoyed in life that didn’t come with a little bit of danger and risk? Yes, even that chili and cheese loaded baked potato came with some risk. But there is nothing quite like cruising on a motorcycle. It is an experience unlike any other. So if you’re looking to inject a little life into your existence, a little romance into your life or a little daily adventure to the mundane, here are seven reasons you should consider two wheels over four.
7. MPGs, Baby!
How about a little practicality to lay the foundation for something that so many people would consider impractical. Motorcycles get outstanding gas mileage. When they’re cruising at highway speed, even the biggest of the beastly V-Twin, Harley Davidson touring models, e.g. Electra Glide Ultra Classic, will score an impressive 40-plus miles to the gallon. And this equates to the Clydesdale horse of the motorcycle world. A typical cruiser or sport bike, or just a putt around town commuter will get into the 50-60 plus miles per gallon range. Do the math. You’ll save some serious coin when you’re straddling the internal combustion horses of a motorcycle, making a motorcycle a stellar commuting option for the responsible city dweller.
