Full Face Helmet - Motorcycles Are Cheaper In The Long Run

Jul 17, 2008
Motorcycles never have been known for their safety. Any vehicle has its risks though. Often times the operators of cars are not watchful enough of the cycle riders. Both the motorcyclist and the car driver need to watch for each other. The cycle rider should keep their lights on rain or shine and remember always to wear their helmets just to be careful.

To be safe there are a few things you will need to get. Start with some kind of helmet the one that is the most protective is the full-face helmet. Then there are the items that are often called leathers which is simply put the jacket and pants made of leather but also these days it could be Kevlar used. You will also need some gloves and some boots. All of these things together keep either your head protected somewhat from road burns or worse.

Cycles and cars have a certain presence that is appealing but in ways not similar to each other. Depending on which color and style you choose in the brand you like a car can be either big and clunky looking or small and sexy looking. With cycles it can be similar with the exception that bikes also show the whole body of the rider and cars do not.

Yes the motorcycles do show all a riders head and body when they ride they are fully exposed to the elements. Many people will be able to admire rider while they ride all decked out in their fancy duds. Guess who gets the most attention while riding though? Of course women do!

Cars hold odors in once they get in the car until you roll down the window, cars also consume quite a bit of fuel. While the cars are taking in so much fuel the prices are going up daily right now and not just in the USA but also all around the world. Pretty soon we all may need to reexamine how much gas we use in the cars if we don't need to already.

But with cycles it is something different. You may have to stop and get gas more often but only due to smaller gas tanks that only hold about 12 gallons. Because the bikes are not as hefty weight as most cars are this causes them not to burn as much gas trying to move them on the road. The extra weight of the rider on the bike really makes very little difference as to how the cycle performs gas wise. The mileage that is attained with a tank of gas is much more satisfactory on a cycle compared to a car.

Maybe the largest thing that makes cycles and cars not alike is how much the cost is in getting one. Cars come to us with very price tags especially for new ones. There is no dodging that cars are an especially costly when you consider buying even a cheap used car you usually have to fix it more after you get it. Did you know that for the price of replacing an air conditioner in a care you could purchase a cycle? All the kinds of maintenance you have to deal with a car on is costly too. Emissions tests to get license, brakes, transmission repairs, and alignment and those are just some of the things it takes to maintain cars. The loss of 1/3 of the value of the car happens just leaving the lot the first day. You cannot only buy a cycle but all the leather protective gear you want plus more for less than the money you give for a car.

A cycle is just plain cheaper than a car even with the expense of all the gear and add ons. For about $300 you can get a cycle that has been ridden before. Put that cost together with the fantastically good gas mileage and your wallet will be so grateful.
