Do you know what nirvana feels like? Then you should probably take a road trip. Road excursions are simply the most effective way to forget the worries that occupy your mind and experience a spiritual adventure without being anywhere near a church. Well, there is no such book that holds the rules to a successful road trip which means that it is no where mentioned in writing that it must be done with a car. A motorcycle can be equally enjoyable too, perhaps even more. However, we need to weigh both sides and just go with the one that’s heavy for your situation.
Motorcycles – The New Horses
Let’s see now, motorcycles are more macho and flaunting until we have up against us a jeep then, no questions asked you have to opt for the jeep. The first thing that must be taken into account is that where do you want to travel. Destinations matter a lot, for short journeys and brief stays motorcycles are classic. If you want to visit the plains of Arizona or the beaches of Tampa Bay, motorcycles are a precise choice for instant tans and impressing friends and girls especially.
However, long journeys can be quite uncomfortable on motorcycles, you have to rest your rear every few hours which is why the comfort of a car would be best suitable for a lengthy trip. Besides, on a bike you have to prepared for any mishap such as a flat (as bikes don’t have a stepney) or any weather conditions that may befall you. One thing’s for sure if you can’t find a room in time you can sleep in the backseat of your car. But a motorcycle? Not so much.
Another little thing about bikes is that you have to pack light a bike cannot carry too much weight especially it’s a heavy-model itself. Sometimes, it won’t really matter, but other times you may encounter the need of stuff that you have left behind. Here comes in the car, the specialty of a car is that it is spacious. Spacious enough to carry your stupid things that you may or may not need during your travels however, to be on the safe side you still pack them. Spacious enough to give a ride to four other people. But it cannot compete to the supreme mobility of a motorcycle that can get you to places easily dodging here and there, more streamlined is fast and hell, less luggage can mean one less thing to worry about!
When there is a talk about which one is more fuel efficacious and which journey will probably cause less, the favor is with the bikes. Even the hybrids cannot match a decent 250cc that has a better mileage than any of the latest or top-notch technology fuel-efficient cars out there. So, if you’re looking to saving some of those hard-earned bucks, go for a bike. Another thing that has totally been missed out in the car-wars is that how much of the road do you really get to enjoy sitting in the car? It may be more relaxed and luxurious but the view that a motorcycle offers on the road, its like moving inside a picture, so up-close that you get to experience everything, a dozen times enhanced.
Nevertheless, it all depends upon what kind of situation applies to you. If it’s a medium length journey and you are up for some exciting, soulful adventure then go for the motorcycle. It’s a charming choice. Whereas, if you are a bit circumspect and wish a cautious and relaxing ride where you are prepared for every calamity, cars for you.
