10 reasons to travel by motorcycle
- Freedom and adventure
What better way to escape from the daily grind than by motorcycle? The feeling of freedom you get on two wheels is total, and riding doesn’t merely get you to the destination: it is the destination itself.
Not only because of being in contact with the wind, the sun, and the rain, it will be because you won’t feel closed in, because you are deciding your route yourself, because it will be like floating on air. Riding a bike brings such a wonderful feeling of freedom, that it’s worth it just for that sensation.
Not to mention all the adventures you can have… a thousand and one!
- Ease of getting around
There’s no doubt that riding a motorcycle is very easy, more than an organized trip, than taking a bus, a train or your own car. You can move more feely because it’s easier to find parking and cross narrow roads, move through traffic jams, etc. Furthermore, you’ll get to your destination less stressed out than being in a car.
- Shared camaraderie
Motorcyclists often feel that they’re part of a larger community.
We share bonds that differentiates us from other worlds such as the car world. We generally try not to enter into rivalries. We just try to help each other out and make the route as pleasant as possible.
The riding sensation connects us to other bikers. We even have our own language to communicate, both by words and signs.
- Individualized throughout
It might seem contradictory, but having camaraderie and good vibes among the riders doesn’t stop the trip from being an individual experience the majority of the time.
We like getting together, going out with friends, but who hasn’t got on a bike and taken off alone? It’s a way of living in tune with ourselves, with nature and with the motorcycle.
- It keeps you young and active
Traveling by motorcycle is an activity that always keeps you active.
The social component is undoubtedly exciting, but so is the trip itself. Those who travel regularly seem to feel younger and are more open to what the world has to offer. It opens your mind and keeps you away from a sedentary lifestyle and routine.
- It improves your physical and mental health
Motorcycles can be incredibly good for your body and your mind.
Traveling by motorcycle is very healthy because we have to make an effort when riding and firing up our neurons. According to several studies, traveling by motorcycle is very healthy: it burns off calories, tones muscles, improves mental activity, cognitive functions of the brain, concentration and reflexes.
There is no therapy that surpasses a motorcycle trip, it’s surely the best antidepressant in the world.
- You’ll stop being dependent
When you plan for a motorcycle trip you have to anticpate various factors so that you won’t have any problems during the trip.
On the motorcycle you carry your cases, papers, a tent if you go camping, tools, a basic first aid kit, food, … whatever is necessary to be self-sufficient and for stopping where you want.
You’ll have a bit less comfort, but you’ll gain in preparedness.
- You’ll take more advantage of the time
When traveling by motorcycle you can move more easily. If you want to get on an alternative route because you’ve discovered something half way down the road, you can. If you have to move through a city with restrictions, it’s a lot easier. So, in the long run, this let’s you make the most of your travel time.
- Improve your introspection
The self-determination or empowerment you get when riding a motorcycle helps you appreciate the simple things in life. So many hours on the road makes you more in tune with yourself and with life in general. There is more time for reflection and contemplation.
- It’s fun! a sufficient reason
And lastly and perhaps the most important, we do have a lot of fun traveling by motorcycle.
That alone would be enough to decide to live out this experience. Riding a motorcycle is great fun, it offers you multiple options depending on your skills and the challenges you like.
If you want to live out the experience in another way, you can do it with us, on our tours or on your own fully equipped BMW. We can offer you several options, but you choose the route.
