Why We Ride - Top 8 Reasons We Love Our Motorcycles

For me it was the movie “The Wild One,” seeing Marlon Brando on a Harley Davidson, riding off onto a dirt-covered road, the roar of the engine blasting through my television, that was when my motorcycle obsession began, I was 5 years old. We all have that moment when we knew we were hooked, old and young, we never forget our first ride, first bike, and first adventure.

So, what it is about motorcycles that draw us in? Why do we ride? It’s a question most bikers have answered many times over. I have come up with a list of the top 8 reasons we ride, no scientific research involved, just a lifetime of being a part of the motorcycle community.

It Gives Me Freedom

Nothing beats the feeling of riding a motorcycle on the open road. Just you, your bike, and the endless sky above. You can go where you want, block out the world around you, and just ride.

Motorcyclists Give Me A Sense Of Community

There is no better community than the brotherhood and sisterhood of motorcyclists. Bound by the same passion, spirit of adventure, and common interests, this community looks out for one another and when a need arises, bikers are not far behind.

It's Fun

In a nutshell, riding a motorcycle is fun. It gets your adrenalin pumping and makes your senses sharper, whether you are riding or watching a competition, there is always the fun factor, and it never gets old.

I Got The Need For Speed

Yeah baby, open up that throttle and let her go! The thrill of acceleration can’t be beaten. Once you have felt the power, it's easy to become addicted. Just be safe, don’t let your thrill-seeking get the best of you. All we ask is for you to wear a helmet and have a motorcycle insurance policy.

It's Economical

Owning a motorcycle can be a lot more economical than owning a vehicle. With cheaper fuel costs, and with the rise in popularity, E-bikes are incredibly environmentally friendly and extremely budget conscience. Motorcycle insurance can be more affordable as well.

It’s A Couples Thing

There are a lot of couples who not only ride together, but each has their own motorcycle and ride with other couples. There are websites devoted to couples riding, offering travel advice, destination planning, and so much more. Empty nesters almost always lead the pack, trading in their minivans for a cruiser or a couple of twin Harley Davidsons.

It's Good For My Mental Health

Okay, this may have some scientific backing, but motorcycling can be beneficial for mental health, especially in today's post-pandemic world. The feeling of calm and relaxation as you wind down the road, leaving the world behind you. Just you and your bike, the best therapy around.

It's A Way Of Life

There is never a dull moment when you are enthusiastic about motorcycles, online communities, motorcycle rallies, motorcycle shows, motorcycle swap meets, motorcycle clubs, motorcycle charities, motorcycle merchandise, I can go on and on.

I could easily list one hundred more reasons for “Why We Ride”, it's different for each of us but at the end of the day, what matters most is that we ride, so, until next time, I'll be looking for you on the open road.
