A growing number of people are ditching cars for motorcycles. This isn’t a surprise; motorcycles offer plenty of benefits that cars simply can’t provide.

With that in mind, here are 6 reasons to choose a motorcycle over a car:

1. Fuel efficiency

Motorcycles require less fuel than cars, making them the more affordable mode of transportation. If you want to save thousands of dollars on yearly gas expenses, you’re better off with a motorcycle.

2. Ease of parking

Because motorcycles are smaller than cars, you’ll have much less trouble finding parking for a motorcycle than a car.

3. Adventure

Driving a car is like being stuck inside a box. But when you’re on a motorcycle, you get to enjoy the rush of the wind against your body, making riding at great speeds even more exhilarating. You expose yourself to sunshine and all the wonderful scents of the great outdoors, giving you a sense of freedom and being part of the world. Small wonder riding a motorcycle always feels like an amazing adventure!

4. Health

According to researchers, riding a motorcycle reduces stress, increases the heart rate and adrenaline levels in a similar way light exercise does and improves focus and alertness. It also burns more calories and engages more muscles than when you’re driving a car. Combine motorcycle riding with regular exercise for the best results!

5. Ease of cleaning

It’s easier and faster to clean a motorcycle for one simple reason: it’s smaller than a car, thus there’s less to wash and wipe down!

6. Lane splitting

To anyone who owns a car, few things are more frustrating than being stuck in a traffic jam. If you’re a motorcyclist in California, however, you’re in luck. The motorcycle’s smaller size allows you to split lanes, so you can keep moving no matter how bad the traffic gets.

Take note: lane splitting is legal in California but illegal in many states.
