Motorbikes are many things, thrilling, fun, and even a little dangerous at times. They can also be a big investment, so before you decide to buy one, check out the list of pros and cons, below.
Pro: Better Health?
Yup, that’s right, getting a motorcycle can actually be good for you! It’s not such a surprise either what with all those muscles you’ll be using to ride it. Having a strong core is vital for handling the bike safely, and good posture is indispensable if you want to be able to see where you are going when you have a helmet on. Indeed, with a bit of handling practice, you can expect to improve your health as you ride.
Pro: Save money
Another crucial benefit to getting a motorcycle is that compared to other types of vehicles like cars they are way cheaper to run. There are two reasons in particular for this. The first is that bike insurance tends to be peanuts compared to car insurance. Indeed you can get a decent bike covered for around a 5th of what it costs for a car.
Secondly, motorbikes get much better MPG than cars and other vehicles, something that means you can save a literal fortune if you choose to make your bike your main vehicle. Oh, and you get the added pleasure of riding it to and from work every day, which shouldn’t be underestimated.
Pro: They are fun as heck
As previously mentioned motorcycles can be so much fun to ride. Truly, nothing provides that thrill and sense of speed like a bike!
Con: More danger?
It would be remiss of us not to mention the risk of danger that comes with getting a motorcycle. The main issue here is that when you are on a bike, you are much less protected than you would be in a car, something that can lead to more serious injuries, which could have a significant effect on your life, work, and finances.
However, there are things you can do to minimize your risks. This means investing in the proper protective clothing, helmet, gloves, and boots, as well as being mindful of the weather and road conditions and choosing not to ride if they present a risk.
Also, if the worst does happen and you do find yourself involved in an accident, it is worth noting that there are legal professionals that specialize in seeking compensation for motorcycle accidents that were not the fault of the rider. Indeed, by seeking compensation, you can help lessen the impact of any medical costs you may incur.
Con: Open to the elements
Finally, something that may put you off getting a motorcycle is that there is minimal to no protection from the weather as you ride. This means they can be less practical than other transport options, especially in the wet and the cold.
Although, it is also worth noting that the ‘open to the element’ nature of motorcycles is also what makes them so exhilarating to ride, so for many, this issue is worth the sacrifice.
