Motorcycle's 'Good Riddance'
Car vs. Motorcycle?! Let's make the obvious, obvious. In a car with manual shift, the driver uses hands and feet, one hand on the wheel, the other on the shifter, one foot on the clutch and the other on the gas or brake. In a bike, the left hand is on the clutch, the right on the right-front brake and throttle. These are simultaneous while both hands are busy steering. The left foot works on the gears and the right on the left-front and rear brakes.
Driving is an activity for both body and mind. Nonetheless, driving is still limited by a lot of factors like the condition of the road, motorcycle part's quality, motorcycle apparel's protection and of course the weather.
Weather plays an important element in riding. It can spoil an otherwise well-planned riding escapade. How does weather affects the ride? Well, let's see...
Just think of a situation when you are driving in your car on a rainy afternoon and your windshield wipers won't work - rain is blurring your vision. Now, double the agony - that's how riding a bike on a rainy day feels like. The blurry vision also applies on the visor of the helmet. Not only that, the controls on the bike are all soaking wet. Your foot can slip off the pedal, fingers slide down the clutch lever so the control element is affected.
Wind can also be a problem especially when crosswinds are in season. To compensate for a strong crosswind, biker swerves. Wind may pose a very serious hazard to the rider. You can add in oil spillage to the road and disaster will ensue.
The best weather is sunny. The sun is permissive and jolly. Although it may hurt the skin and may leave you copiously perspiring. Nonetheless, it fits every ride. You can do whatever you like under the sun. The riding possibilities are endless and you for sure is going to enjoy it!
