The great Australian climate is ideal for motorcycle riding, especially those long hot summer days and it is around November that you will start to see a spike in bike numbers on Australian roads. There are many benefits to be enjoyed when you garage the car and climb aboard your stylish bike and here are just a few.
- Thrill & Excitement – Unless you are driving a prestige sports car, you can’t really compare the acceleration of a powerful superbike, which can take you from 0-60mph in just a few seconds. Once you have experienced the open roads on a big bike, you will be hooked and you do need to have the utmost respect for the awesome power you have at your disposal.
- Saving Money – Once the car is parked up and you take the bike everywhere, your fuel costs will drop dramatically, then there’s the servicing, which is high for cars and trucks, yet minimal with a bike. Road tax and insurance are also cheaper with a bike and parking in never an issue. Indeed, you could sell the car and keep the money for your next foreign holiday and with your monthly motoring costs slashed, you can add to the kitty.
- Timeless Style – One look at the Royal Enfield Bullet 500 will be enough to seal the deal; what’s not to like about this classic single-cylinder bike and with reliability and amazing fuel savings, your bike will become your regular mode of travel. The classic retro look is in trend and a Google search will take you to a reputable motorcycle dealer, where you can book a test ride on your favourite model. The dealer has low-interest finance and can also handle comprehensive insurance.
- Eco-Friendly Travel –Let’s face it, riding around on a single-cylinder bike has to be better for the environment than driving that gas guzzler truck and if it is only you and a passenger, why not leave the car at home and enjoy the open road? Of course, you need to make sure that you are road legal (Google is your best friend) and have the right clothing and gear.
It isn’t just the teenagers that love two wheels, indeed, many couples tour Australia on their big bike and if you would like to join them, the perfect bike is sitting in a showroom somewhere, waiting for your arrival.
