Riding a motorcycle will make you a “better person” because you get that adventurous side back in you. I think a lot of people struggle within their marriage or relationships or getting older because you end up stuck in a rut. This is something that will bring a whole new adventurous side to your life that you never thought you could do. It’s challenging, and always builds self-esteem and confidence.
So here are the top 10 reasons to ride a motorcycle !
Women Like tough guys
All girls like guys who are tough. Obviously, riding a motorcycle — I don’t want to say that there’s a bad boy quality — but there’s definitely a tough and macho thing about a guy who rides a motorcycles and that element of danger. That’s really sexy.
Motorcycling gives you instant style
Leather is always sexy, and you have to wear leather when you ride a bike. It’s more for protection, but it also gets you some style points, I think. I’ve always been into motorcycle fashion, but now I know the function behind all the zippers on the jacket; they’re all really for something. You want your gear to be protective, and that’s why leather is good because you can move and it’s windproof. You dress in layers so you can peel it off.
Road trips are sexier on a bike
The romantic part about biking [with your partner] is that feeling of being a teenager again: Pack a few shirts, bring a toothbrush and just go. You don’t need a whole bunch of crap. It’s freeing to simply be low-maintenance and just go.
It’s a great way to meet new people
I think there’s a stereotype of what a biker is, and I think that’s one of the reasons people are shocked when they find out that I ride. I’ve been trying to break down the stereotypes and inspire new riders. I’ve actually met some great people who ride. You get this whole new group of friends and family when you start riding. I think it’s people who are looking for fun and adventure and to get out of a rut.
Cars are like cages, Motorcycles are liberating
It’s a really cool feeling of freedom to get on your bike and go. I call cars cages. I’ve ridden on back-country roads that I’ve been on a thousand times in a car growing up. When you go on a bike, you see everything differently — you’re outside and you feel like you’re in the environment more.
Biking keeps you young
My dad rode motorcycles when he was younger, and I got him back into it. He’s completely addicted, and he’s a different person now. My mum and I were laughing because he’s so much more social, he has this new group of friends, he’s losing weight, and he looks better. It’s funny because as you get older you often get in a rut of what your hobbies are and what you like to do.
The adrenaline rush alone is worth it
Even the sound, to me, of a bike is sexy. There’s a lot of energy, and it gets my heart pumping anytime I start up my bike.
You would actually know what a burn out is(the cool kind)
Some people do burnouts against the wall, which they say is the weak way to do it because you’re not holding the bike yourself. You basically have your front brake in so that the bike can’t go anywhere, and then you put your bike in gear and make the back tire spin out like it’s going 60 miles an hour. It starts smoking and it’s really loud and it looks really cool.
You will get closer to nature
I have had so many great roads to ride on that are along the coast. Pick up a motorcycle and travel from Lagos to Epe or Ibadan and you would understand. In fact I know a few guys that have done Lagos to Abuja under 5 hours.
Biking keeps you real
I think my appeal is that I’ve always tried to stay very grounded to my fans and to be accessible — not being this unattainable thing. I think
doing sports and riding motorcycles has made me more approachable and more real and down to earth.
Of course, there are so many other reasons to ride a motorcycle. For instance, you would save time and money especially in mad traffic of Lagos. You would be able to arrive early and spend time with your loved one and there is the health benefits that come from riding a motorcycle.
