Riding and Life

I love driving motorcycle. In fact I like it better than driving a car. If you use motorcycle in the city, traffic is no big deal for you. If you are going to other places, riding a motorcycle offers a better view and ecstatic feeling than riding in a car.

Riding a motorcycle, though it’s more fun, is quite difficult and a bit dangerous. Just think of this, you are riding in a vehicle with only two wheels with the speed of around 90kph or more. Well, one tiny mistake can end it there. That’s why we are always asked to be very careful on the road.

Despite the danger why do I still love riding motorcycles? Well, basically because I don’t have money to buy a Pajero. At the same time riding motorcycle is a constant reminder of how to live my life every day. This is what I want to share with you.

If you are riding a motorcycle, balance is very important. Placing baggage and things you need to carry must be done on the bike properly for stability.
