During the summer what could be better than feeling the open air as you hit the road? Nothing quite comes close to riding a motorbike for that feeling. If you have a drivers license for a car you may think that there is no way you can ride a motorbike on the roads without passing a different test. Not to worry as you are perfectly entitled to legally ride 125cc motorbikes which may be a bit small but are still great fun to ride.
These bikes are generally a lot cheaper than their bigger counterparts and are much cheaper to repair. They make a perfect alternative to being stuck in a car during the heat of summer and have the added bonus that they are easy to navigate around traffic jams. Chances are you just won’t be caught in one riding a bike as you can nip in and out of other cars on the road.
If you want to spend a little bit more money you could always get your motorbike upgraded. Have a quick look on the internet at custom motorcycles to get an idea of the things you can do to bikes. Cost can be an issue but if it isn’t, then your imagination is the limit. Chrome wheels, wacky paint jobs and even engine modifications are all brilliant ways of making your bike more personal to you. Modifying an engine is very complicated but the extra power that can be squeezed out of a finely tuned engine is astounding, like riding a rocket if the right things are done. Simple extras such as a sports air filter make a huge difference as well as the more expensive jobs such as having your engine head ported and flowed.
To conclude, get yourself a motorbike if only for the summer months. You will have an amazing time riding around and won’t look back!
