Motorcycles are very dangerous machines because one has to balance themselves accordingly on two wheels, and since these motorcycles weigh less and drive fast, a single mistake can cost a rider his life. However, many find this situation overwhelming and get more excitement from it.

Some bikes can reach 60-70 miles per gallon, with others reaching 100+ mpg. Motorcycles are very easy to park because in most areas nowadays, they have their own designated parking.
They are also very small, so parking is a breeze. Motorcycles are very earth-friendly because of low carbon emissions. Since they are very small, motorcycles are preferred by riders because they can ride between lanes or on their own lanes, getting to their destination sooner.

Motorcycles are also very good mediums for people to show their creativity and personality. Some riders tend to customize their rides to show their love, showing how much these bikes mean to them.
For daredevil riders or even new drivers, the feeling of matching a very fast car with a lesser cost adds more flare to these bikes. Although it is dangerous to try it out on the road, outmatching a car on a track makes many riders buy motorcycles. Motorcycles are great symbols of being cool, especially if one is wearing typical rider gear in a public place.
Finally, many ride because of the freedom it brings. With just two wheels, a full tank, and gear, one can go to places not easily reachable by cars.
One is not confined to a boxed space as they go to a destination. Riders feel the wind, the acceleration and everything that comes with riding. Some riders keep on riding to many places with their motorcycles alone.
