There are lots of motorcycles in Ghana. Guess why?
A Motorcycle’s model is one of those things that is often not negotiable when buying a motorbike. Like buying a car, getting yourself a motorbike can give you the need to think long and hard about which type fits your needs and preferences.
Motorbikes are everywhere in Ghana. And they play a useful role in both transport, logistics movement, and passion. Next are some of the reasons to use a motorbike.
Why Use a Motorbike?
Vehicles for private use are personal and usage depends on the needs of the individual. Most people who ride motorbikes enjoy more convenience as they do not face parking problems, don’t have to spend a lot on maintenance, and definitely, don’t have to stay stuck in traffic.
Due to the size of motorbikes, you can easily maneuver through traffic without having to be stuck in one place for a long time.
A motorbike is sometimes practical when you look at your needs, budget, and your situation. You may need a temporal means of transport. Motorbikes are cheaper and can be easily sold on platforms such as Tonaton.com. This makes it more practical in some situations to simply buy a bike, enjoy it and then sell it off at a cool price.
3. For Fun / Thrill of Riding / Passion
Instead of having a joy drive, some people prefer a joy ride. They prefer to feel the wind rush over their face and to relish the feeling of freedom that most cars do not give.
It is even better when you are part of a bike group or club. The feel of community and friendship gets better and stronger.
4. Fuel Economy
Motorbikes are generally less heavy on fuel consumption. Even though they require less fuel than cars, they provide great speeds that will allow you to reach your destination fast.
5. Being Able to Park with Ease
Parking can be terrible if the parking lot is small or others park “by-heart”. Poor parking behavior from other drivers can put you in a mess. You may have to wait for others to come and move their cars before you can drive away. This is a problem with motorbikes due to their size and slight flexibility. They can easily be maneuvered out.
