When someone rides a motorcycle for a long time, they get used to it and they never truly want to go back to driving an automobile full-time. Sure, they’ll get into a car from time to time. But they feel much more at ease when they’re on the back of their motorcycle.
The true motorcyclist is ready to hit the road, no matter what type of weather comes their way. But just because someone has the willingness to do something doesn’t mean they know what they’re doing. Riding a motorcycle in certain dangerous weather may be easier than maneuvering a heavy truck or a large SUV, but that doesn’t mean that the rider will be safe in every situation.
This world wasn’t built for tall people. Ironically, it wasn’t built for short people either. The average height of a man is 5ft 8-9in while the average height for a woman is 5ft 2-3in. So unless a person is in the very middle of the average height, something tells me that everyone who does not conform to the standard height has a very difficult time looking for jackets that look amazing and also fit their body without being too small or too large. Buying clothes can be a pain, but shopping becomes especially hurtful when you find an article of clothing you instantly fall in love with, only to try it on and realize that it is far too small for you!!
Want to spend like a skinflint (cheap) on your next motorcycle road trip? Well, here are some tips and tricks that were learned by trial and error that can keep the cost of traveling at a minimum. When applied they might just stretch your dollar and miles farther.
Ever been on a motorcycle ride with friends where you had to pull over and talk face to face. How antiquated, either you use hand signals, a prearranged stopping point, or shout at the top of your lungs to get heard. Everyone seems to be connected electronically to everyone they know and so should you while on a motorcycle ride. You need to be able to communicate with other riders while on the road. Speaking of being on the road don’t forget to show off your new Mesh Motorcycle Jacket. Motorcycle communications come in a variety of technical devices, Bluetooth, walkie-talkies, two-way radios, and so on.
If you lose weight and you exercise but you’re not really seeing any improvement, it’s time to go to the doctor. Well, similar to having a good gear store from where you can buy a leather motorcycle jacket or a pair of leather motorcycle gloves, it is always a good idea to go to the doctor for your good riding health. Pain and loss of endurance or stamina is a sign that you need to see a medical expert so they can find out what is going on with your body. Even if the answer is just that you are getting older, the doctor can help you by testing out your vitamin and nutritional levels to see what you are lacking in your diet.
I love my motorcycle. I love the feelings I experienced whenever I sit on the seat, and I can’t describe how empowering it is to feel the wind in my hair while I’m traveling down an endless highway road with nature and canyons on either side of me. If it wasn’t for my job, I don’t think I would ever want to own a car. When I finally quit my job, I will hand the company car’s keys to my manager and turn away from my work truck without a second thought. I belong on a motorcycle and my motorcycle belongs in my garage.
For every one of us who would rather sit on the back of a motorcycle and ride out into the rain instead of sitting in a vehicle, riding is our life. There’s no place we would rather be and no vehicle we would rather drive. Once we rev the engine of our bikes and drive out into the sunset, we feel like we can do anything. All we need is a water bottle, a tank full of gas, and our favorite leather motorcycle jacket and leather motorcycle gloves. Nothing can stop us, and nothing can keep us down.
Do you have any idea how many motorcyclists are stopped by police every day because they have their smartphones in their hands? The cops don’t even have to search for them very hard! All they need to do is catch a motorcyclist looking at their lap when they should be looking at the road! It’s that easy!
There’s nothing better than a delicious hot bowl of beef stew with a pile of mashed potatoes and a buttery biscuit. Unfortunately, such amazing meals aren’t found very often on the road, unless you happen to make your way to a 50+year-old diner. No, when you think about it, motorcyclists and riders who spend hours out on the road every year have a pretty terrible diet.
