Overlooked Benefits Motorcycle Riding Can Offer You


If you're thinking of buying a new motorcycle, when it comes to the perks, your focus is probably primarily on a motorcycle's fuel efficiency. Make sure you aren't making this mistake. Being the owner of a motorcycle and enjoying your time in the open air can be beneficial to your health as well as your wallet.   

Weight Loss Assistance

If you need to lose a few pounds, riding a motorcycle may be able to help you achieve your goals. When driving a vehicle, you can expect to burn somewhere around 70 calories per hour of driving. However, when driving a motorcycle, you can expect to burn at least 100 calories in the same hour. It might not seem like a lot, but when you're trying to lose weight every calorie burned counts.

Stress Reliever

There is something calming about the feeling of fresh air blowing on your face and the rest of your body. Not only is this experience calming in the moment, but it can also offer long-term benefits in the form of stress relief. If you've had an especially hectic day at work or you have a big project you're preparing for, as a motorcycle owner, you'll be able to hop on your Harley and mellow out.

Stronger Leg Muscles

Riding a motorcycle can also help you strengthen the muscles in your knees and thighs. Strength in this area is especially important when it comes to mobility concerns later in life and to preventing knee pain. Much of this benefit has to do with somewhat of the balancing act that riders must do to stay safe on the road. Additionally, when parking a motorcycle, given the weight of the bike, this movement can offer similar results as a weighted leg press.

Improved Core Strength

Riding a motorcycle can also help improve your core strength. Similar to stronger leg muscles, the balancing act that is required to ride a motorcycle and keep it stable will also help improve your core muscles. Strong core muscles aren't just the foundation of great looking abs, but they also help improve your balance, digestion, heart health, and posture.

Whether you ride your motorcycle every single day or only every so often, you can still experience the many benefits that riding them can offer. Not only will these benefits make you a better rider, but they will also enhance your daily routine and improve your overall quality of life.

Car Dealer Auto Selection: How The Process Works

After going to my first auto auction, I became very interested in how dealers select the cars they're going to put on their lots. I spent a lot of time talking with local dealers, auction regulars, and others in the industry to learn the behind-the-scenes secrets to picking out the perfect auction cars and getting them lot-ready. I created this site to help others understand what goes into the process in the hopes that it would help car buyers understand what they're looking at when they hit the car lot. I hope the information here helps you better prepare for buying your next car.
