Before my motorcycle I owned an Audi A4 that was pretty good on gas. in a month I would spend about 70 dollars on gas.
Now, 70 dollars can buy enough gas for 7 months to ride my motorcycle. not only financially, there are many benefits for having a bike.
Compared to an SUV that emits 205 grams of Co2 per kilometer, a motorcycle like the one I have only emits about 100 grams, it is half of what a car produces car.
The average mileage I get on my motorcycle per gallon is 70 miles compared to a car that usually does 25 miles a gallon.

Riding with someone 
This blog is dedicated to Little Messi, AKA Antony.

When having a passenger on the motorcycle, there are a few things to look into. The tire pressure, the suspension, if the passenger has appropriate gear, and if they have any experience with motorcycles.
Personally, i hate having someone on the back of my bike because it makes it slower, everything changes, the acceleration, the stopping, how you make the turns, and many other riding techniques. 

The heavier the person, the slower the motorcycle gets and since i like to go fast, i don't like having a fat person on the back.
Other than slowing me down, riding with a passenger raises the chance of an accident significantly, and having the responsibility of someone’s life does not feel good for the rider.

In Florida, the law is that both the rider, and the passenger must wear a helmet at all times when riding the motorcycle. The fine if someone does not follow the law goes up to $250,000 and time in prison for negligence.

Last week, little messi wanted a ride home, so without thinking, he jumped on my motorcycle not realizing that the right side for going on is the side that does not have the muffler. Next thing he knew is that his skin came out and got stuck on my bike, and Antony was laughing about what had happened.
The burn mark is going to stay on his leg for many years because it will leave a really bad scar.

Motorcycle Stereotypes

There are a few motorcycle stereotypes that everyone thinks that is true, but most of them are not.
The most common one is that every motorcycle rider has a death wish. This is not true, riding a motorcycle is dangerous, but it does not mean that we are all going to die. One of the things that I hear the most is " You are going to die." So far, I have never been close to a close call on the streets, but I understand that I could happen at anytime, and that is the reason I enjoy riding. It makes me feel alive.

Another stereotype that people say is that all motorcycle riders wear leather and listen to rock. Leather is a good material because it protects the rider in case of an accident. However, there are other materials that are just as good; I own a professional race motorcycle jacket, which is made from a special material that does not rip, but the bipolar weather in Miami makes it hard to wear it. About the rock music, I listen to it sometimes.

Having a motorcycle does not mean i do wheelies and stunts with it. In my opinion, motorcycle stunts are stupid and useless. Every single person who does stunts has fallen or will fall at one point, and why would a person do something knowing that he or she will get hurt. 

There are more negative motorcycle stereotypes than positive ones. A positive stereotype is that people think you're badass for riding. Just like any other stereotype, the negative ones are not true: but the good ones are.
