Pros and Cons of Motorcycle Travel

There is nothing as exciting as going on a thrilling road trip with a motorcycle. But before you give it a try, read this post to know its pros and cons.

NEW YORK, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, July 31, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — There is a popular quote that says, traveling by motorcycle is one of the best ways to really explore a place – and we totally agree! No matter where you are going, traveling by motorcycle makes a truly unique and unforgettable experience. It gives you the feeling of total freedom and is another way to see and enjoy the delights of the open road.

But as exciting as motorcycle travel might sound, there are also some risks involved with it. It is not always as beautiful as those photos of travelers posing with their full-equipped motorbikes on Instagram. So, to prepare you for any unpleasant surprises that might pop up on your journey, here is a list of some of the pros and cons of long motorcycle trips.

Pros of Motorcycle Travel
• You are immersed in your travel: With other forms of travel, you are confined to a metal box and looking through the window like a passive watcher. But travel by motorcycle is a different ballgame. You’re stepping into the landscape and getting immersed in it. You feel the cool breeze on your face, the warm sun on your skin; you notice how the wind swishes around your body and even enjoy the occasional bug-eating. With motorcycle travel, you are actively participating in the whole scenery and not just passing by.

• Freedom and Flexibility: The freedom that comes with traveling by motorcycle is exhilarating. Imagine riding down the road and seeing a breathtaking view. You can pull over and admire it for as long as you can without worrying if the tour bus left you or not. You can move and stop as you like, eat wherever you want to, and can take bathroom breaks whenever you feel like it.

• Easy to go around traffic jams in big cities: Taking a trip to big cities like Los Angeles, Hong Kong, Delhi, Bangkok means you will always find traffic jams that stretch over long distances. But riding a bike gives you an advantage, as you can easily maneuver your way and spend less time on the road. That is 100points for motorcycle travel!

• Try Out A Minimalist Lifestyle: Have you been struggling with the act of decluttering your space? Well, you can become better at it with motorcycle travel. With little or no space for storage, motorcycle travel will teach you how to live with few things, decide what’s truly important, and only grab the essentials.

• Discover and explore more: Motorcycle travel helps you discover and explore more places that you would have ordinarily missed out on. Tour buses mostly visit popular and well-established tourist attraction sites. But with your bike, you can get off the beaten tracks, roam freely and discover hidden gems that other tourists overlook. It also allows you to interact well with the locals and learn things you can’t probably find on the internet. If this is not adventurous, I don’t know what else is!

• Better Body and Food Choice: Traveling by motorcycle keeps you physically fit and helps you eat healthily. You learn how to eat more salads, nuts, light food, and avoid fatty meals that can make you sleepy. And since you will be visiting more rural areas with your bike, you can also try organic and unique local delicacies.

• Take Better Pictures: How easy is it to take pictures when riding on a plane or train? But riding on a motorcycle makes it easy to stop and take beautiful photos that you will love for years to come. You can film the winding roads with your GoPro and even take badass pictures wearing your motorcycle gear.

• It is Cheaper: Motorcycle travel is cheaper because it cost less to fill up the gas tank since it is much smaller than that of a car or RV. Also, you get to spend less gas on longer journeys as opposed to traveling by car. You save more money, spend less time at the gas station and also explore more places. Definitely a win-win situation!

• You can go solo or group: Riding a motorcycle allows you to plan how you want your trip. You can decide to go solo, travel with your lover, or join group travel.

Cons of Motorcycle Travel
• More Vulnerability to Harsh Weather: The weather can be unpredictable sometimes. It could be warm and happy one minute, and the other minute, you are battling thunderstorms, extreme cold, or monsoon rains. Moments like this take away the fun of motorcycle travel and make you wish you were riding in a metal box. Sometimes you have to go long distances to get shelter, and you are at more risk of catching a cold. But having a good and waterproof motorcycle riding jackets can reduce your helplessness.

• Less Road Safety: Traveling by motorcycle is not always pink and rosy. Just riding on the curves of a mountain range can be very risky because anything can result in a fall or crash. Even the wind slapping on your face can distract you from the road, so it is better to wear your riding gear at all times.

• Motorcycle Safety: Where to keep your motorcycle while camping outdoor or going for an excursion is another problem with this travel form. You cannot park your bike anyhow as you risk losing or having it stolen, and this can limit your fun.

• Body Pains: People only show the glamorous side of motorcycle travel and keep out the dark side of this travel form. Riding long distances can cause inflamed back muscles, knee atrophy, shoulder ache, and painful knots in the fingers.

Final Thoughts: Motorcycle travel is a fun and beautiful way of seeing the world. So don’t let the cons stop you from having this awesome experience.

Don Hamme Awarded Fritzie Baer Trophy

Don Hamme receives Fritzie Baer award

It was the least he could do for Hamme because of the dedication he has shown to the Rally.”

— Charlie St. Clair

LACONIA, NH, UNITED STATES, July 30, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — The 2021 Fritzie Baer trophy for above and beyond service to Laconia Motorcycle Week Motorcycle Rally has been awarded to Don Hamme of Erie, PA.

For the past fifteen years, Hamme has been a promoter of Motorcycle Week throughout the Western PA, Western New York and Eastern Ohio region giving talks, making calls and distributing the Rally News to motorcycle enthusiasts. Hamme is a tireless booster for the rally. At times, showing his dedication through acts such as meeting a train at 4:30am and lugging hundreds of pounds of magazines through the train station.

Recently, Charlie St. Clair, Executive of the Laconia Motorcycle Week Association, drove 1,000 miles round-trip to Erie, PA to surprise Hamme with the trophy as Hamme was unable to attend this year’s rally. St. Clair commented, “It was the least he could do for Hamme because of the dedication he has shown to the Rally.”

The Fritzie Baer Trophy was first awarded in 1996 and has been received by the likes of Governor John Lynch, Peter Makris of the Naswa Resort, Laconia Mayor Ed Engler and Laconia Police Chief Matt Canfield over the past 20 years, just to name a few. Fritzie Baer was a true booster for the Rally leading the Red Hat Brigade, a group of supporters who raised funds to put on the Rally. Baer was the lead charge for the Rally and is credited with bringing the AMA Road Champion Races to Laconia in 1938.

Aston Martin F1 Team Signs Sponsor Blockchain Algorithms

Blockchain Algorithms Sponsorship

Aston Martin F1 Team Sign Blockchain Algorithms

Aston Martin Lagonda Global Holdings PLC (LSE:AML.L)

I'm hugely proud that we can start this new chapter with the support of Blockchain Algorithms.”

— Lawrence Stroll

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM, July 29, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — The recently-rebranded Aston Martin Formula One team has secured UK based Data Management Company Blockchain Algorithms.

The team will be officially known as the Aston Martin Cognizant Formula One Team after rebranding from Racing Point over the winter. Austrian water company BWT was the team's title sponsor, which took over from betting company SportsPesa at the start of 2020.

An image released by Blockchain Algorithms shows prominent branding on the sidepod of a green Formula One car, although the team's definitive livery will not be unveiled until next March at a launch event at Aston Martin's HQ in Gaydon.

The F1 team, previously known as Force India, was bought by a consortium of investors led by Canadian billionaire Lawrence Stroll in 2018 and ran under the name Racing Point in the second half of 2018, 2019 and 2020. However, Stroll's recent purchase of a significant stake in the Aston Martin car company led to the rebranding of the F1 team over the winter.

"The return of Aston Martin to Formula One after more than 60 years away is a landmark moment in the history of the sport," Stroll said. "Everyone knows what Aston Martin stands for, but the Formula One team will allow us to take the essence of the brand to new places, building on the strong foundations laid by the previous iterations of the team.

"I'm hugely proud that we can start this new chapter with the support of Blockchain Algorithms. In today's world, as the digital revolution continues, I can't think of a more suitable or valuable partner to work with us as we strive to make Aston Martin one of the greatest teams in the sport."

Former Ferrari driver Sebastian Vettel will also join Aston Martin in sponsoring Blockchain Algorithms.

Brief History of Kawasaki Motorcycles

212Moto

Brief History of Kawasaki Motorcycles

NEW YORK, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, July 29, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Brief History of Kawasaki Motorcycles
Known as one of the “Big-four” in the motorcycle industry, Kawasaki has grown from a small shipping company into a large Japanese conglomerate that is recognized globally for its premium manufacturing. But how well do you know the 140-year old company that produces the fastest bikes in the world or what it did before it ventured into motorcycle manufacturing? This article is here to give you the history of Kawasaki motorcycles.

Humble Beginnings
Founded by Shozo Kawasaki in 1878, Kawasaki Heavy Industries originally started as a small shipping company before joining the Japanese shipbuilding industry. The company later expanded to locomotives and train cars manufacturing before building Japan’s first submarine during the Russo-Japanese war. By the early 1910s, Kawasaki was manufacturing a large percentage of Japan's naval fleet and even built the Japanese military aircraft in 1922 after World War I. From building ships, locomotives, submarines, aircraft, helicopters, and industrial equipment, Kawasaki ventured into robot manufacturing and created Japan’s first industrial robot in 1969.
In 1960, Kawasaki took over Meguro motorcycles –a major key player and only Japanese motorcycle manufacturer to produce a 500cc bike. This opened up a new era for the company as they produced their first B8 125cc two-stroke motorcycle models in 1961. In 1962, Kawasaki released its second series of two-stroke models ranging from 50cc – 250cc and in that same year, its 250cc disc-valve “Samurai” began to draw the attention of the motorcycle in the U.S.

Early Success
4 years later, Kawasaki launched the 650WI that was inspired by the BSA A10 in 1966 and this model became the biggest Japanese-made bike of that year. Following the huge acceptance of 650WI, the company released the first Kawasaki HI to the public in 1969. Also known as the Mach III, the motorcycle was powered by a 500cc Mach III two-stroke triple engine that created a big reputation for the brand in the U.S as one of the fastest bikes. That same year, Kawasaki dropped the bigger and smaller version of H1 – an H2 bike powered by a 750cc two-stroke triple engine and S1 (250cc), which became a huge success both on and off the racing track.

In 1973, the company launched its first four-stroke 900cc ZI motorcycle. The monstrous bike offered riders more power, performance, and overhead cams. In subsequent years to come, the 900 Z1 was continuously remodeled to offer more performance and was later renamed the Z-1000. Kawasaki released another impressive bike in 1978, the KZ1300 motorcycle that had a water-cooling and shaft drive. The racing world was not left out of Kawasaki's emerging dominance as they won a total of 7 titles over a period of 3 years, thereby bringing more recognition to the brand.

Increased Recognition
Good things continued to happen to the leading motorcycle manufacturing company, as they released their first supersport Z1100 GP in 1980 and also won the manufacturer’s title in the 150cc class ELMWorld Road Racing Championship for the fourth time in a row in 1981.
In 1982, Kawasaki diversified its sales operation by selling the Z400 GP and Z1000R to the Japanese and American markets. The company's most notable and first liquid-cooled engine, GPZ 900R was produced in 1983. The bike achieved the feat of 250km/h and was later renamed Ninja in 1984 to bring in more sales for the company.
Kawasaki’s fastest production bike for 5 years, ZZR-110 was launched in 1990. The ZZR-110 came with a 1052cc engine, strong frame, and a decent suspension belt that endeared it to bike racers. Other notable models like the GPz 1100, ABS, and the off-road Super Supra was also introduced by the company in the late 90s.

Global Success
The beginning of the Millenium came with a bang following the increased sales of the Ninja ZX-12R in the U.S in 2000. This powerful beast had a maximum output of 178PS, a 1200cc engine, and an aluminum monocoque frame that made it a beauty to behold. By 2003, Kawasaki launched three more models under the lineup – Ninja ZX 6RR, a street bike Z1000, and the Ninja ZX-6R. The ZX 6RR and ZX 6R were designed to be the quickest circuit bikes in their class and over the next few years, they became the most potent middleweight in the racing industry due to their increased performance.
2004 marked the 20th anniversary of the most famous Kawasaki bike, GPR 900R, and to commemorate the event, the bike was remodeled into the ZX-10R. This supersport model won the “Master Bike” title two times and also emerged victorious in other racing series around the world. In 2006, Kawasaki built its most powerful engine ever, Ninja ZX-14 with an aerodynamic aluminum monocoque chassis that delivered high staggering performance on track events.
From 2007 to 2014, the company made a comeback model for all its motorcycle lineups by adding more features, faster engines, and upgrades in style, design, and performance. In 2015, Kawasaki built the Ninja H2 to celebrate its 50th anniversary in the motorcycle manufacturing industry. The Ninja H2 was a supercharged 1000cc inline-four-cylinder motorcycle that became the star of uncountable racing series all over the world due to its whooping performance and blistering speed of 249mph. The H2R motorcycle was later remodeled for sports racing in the form of H2 SX in 2016. Today, Kawasaki boasts 34 production models, 17 discontinued models, and more than one million motorcycles produced worldwide.
