Freedom used to be a sufficient explanation as to why you should own a motorcycle. Now it is sometimes necessary to provide a more in-depth reply. Maybe this will help you explain that owning a bike is not about being cool—motorcycles help you live a better life and be a better person.

After you give someone the reasons you ride on this list, they will want to buy a bike and join you on the road.

Ride Regularly, Ride Intelligently
Forget about the helmet hair and walking on sidewalks and into restaurants wearing your base layers. Forget about the possibility of rain or high winds. When you ride a motorcycle it's not about the look. It's about the feel.

Part of the whole intelligent riding deal is that you will be able to appreciate your surroundings while still being hyper-aware of the road conditions, speeds, and angles of every moving thing on the road around you.

While we are on the subject of intelligent motorcycle riding, it is a fact that not every motorist feels the same obligation to do the same. A motorcyclist can take every precaution within their capabilities, but it can be undone in one second by a careless or negligent driver. That’s when it’s time to reach for the big guns.

If you live or ride in Texas, San Antonio, and your rights as a rider have been stepped on by a careless driver, you should contact a San Antonio motorcycle accident attorney immediately. Drivers won’t learn to pay motorcyclists the attention they deserve until they are made to do so.

Better, Easier Commuting
It’s hard not to feel a little smug when you are weaving elegantly around the gridlocked traffic at rush hour and leaving the commuter crush behind. If you are concerned about exposure to exhaust fumes and other pollutants while on the road you should look into wearing a filter mask or tying a bandana around the lower half of your face.

The type of helmet you choose can be helpful when it comes to the noise and smell of the surrounding traffic. When you go for a helmet fitting, remember to bring up the fact that you commute to work and the sales assistant can guide you towards the appropriate style and shape.

Going Green
Motorcycles use far less gas than a four-wheel vehicle. The services and maintenance are less expensive as well. A bonus when it comes to fuel efficiency is that motorcycles are a greener form of transport across the board.

If you are still living large with a noisy, old model two-stroke machine, then maybe you won’t be saving the environment to a large extent, but modern bikes have to meet the increasingly harsh environmental standards that are now in force. If you want to take your green initiative even further, you can go electric. Now that’s something to smile about.
