    Why do people ride motorcycles?

    Some people ride them for the gas efficiency.  Not me.

    When I rode a motorcycle it was for the freedom I felt.  Nothing between me and the open road except a roaring engine and some rubber.  I found it quite thrilling to move at such speeds on the outside of a vehicle. 

    Then I started going to funerals of people that had died in crashes.  At the same time my experience on a bike was giving me the courage to drive more and more reckless.  I was going faster, turning faster, and driving more to get the adrenaline I had once got.  I finally decided that the risk wasn't worth the thrill and sold my bike and now I just drive.

    For the thrill, the danger and the sense of freedom, and for the fun of it.

    Sorry, this is absurd.  Why do people drive cars, fly in aeroplanes, paint pictures, write inane questions on hubpages?

    Motorcyclists have shared with me that they love most of all the feeling of the wind all along their bodies as they move through space. It's a sensation that can be found only partially in a convertible or on a bicycle.

    The freedom you feel going down the road.  The things you see while going down the road.  You feel where you are going.  It's like you get in your car and drive fast in your car to get where you are going.  That feeling is what it feels like on a bike and you don't have to ride fast to feel it.  It's more relaxing, I think it's just as safe or even safer riding a bike then driving a car.  Better control, better brakes,  better attention to whats going on around you and more ability to avoid others.

    Because it's less exhausting than pushing them.

    There are a lot reasons why people prefer motorcycle over 4 wheeled gas guzzlers. As a personal point of view, it is more of the sense of freedom when riding a bike. It is a bit risky compared to cars but the insurance is surely going to vary.

    This is a fundamentally important question, but it has a twist to it!
    If a person has to "Ask the question"  Why do people ride motorcycles?
    They would not be able to understand the answer!!

    The only way a person can understand this most difficult question of all time is by Osmosis.
