It's not hard to figure out exactly why there are more motorcyclists. The younger population seems to be the driving force behind this growing appeal and we can thank the economy for that. In this space, let's take a look at the motorbike experience.
The choice of the motorbike
Today, young motorists are opting out of owning a car to become motorcyclists. Read my latest blog post to find out more. With a motorbike, they can get around faster, without having to queue in traffic for hours.
Most of the congestion on the roads is caused by vehicles. Vehicle owners spend hours in their vehicles before returning. This situation has motivated more people to take up a motorbike to go faster.
Advantages of the motorbike
Another advantage must be the cost. Wages have indeed been reduced in many industries, while consumer costs, such as housing and fuel, have increased. This leaves little to cover transport costs. Riding a motorbike simply makes economic sense. The cost of a typical motorbike is much less than you would spend on a car. Both in terms of buying the asset and the running costs.
Getting a motorbike licence is easier. You simply have to complete a compulsory basic training course before you are allowed to drive a motorbike or moped on the road. Taking the licence covers you for a few years and then you will have to take the full motorbike or moped test.
The dress code for motorbike training, students are required to wear appropriate clothing. As a minimum, they must wear a motorbike helmet. They must also wear heavy jeans, a heavy jacket, sturdy boots and motorbike gloves. The largest collection of motorbike clothing can be found in online shops.
Another reason: freedom
Another reason that stands out is pure fun. There are few experiences as enjoyable as the sense of liberation and individuality that comes from cruising down the road with no destination in mind. For a younger generation unwilling to take on family responsibilities and be tied down, the life of a biker has immense appeal. Being able to travel cheaply around the region and feel more deeply immersed in the local community and environment cannot be underestimated.
