Motorcycling is a form of transportation using a motorcycle. It is also, for many people around the world, the most affordable form of transportation by an individual. In fact, motorcycle is the most common motorized vehicle in many populated countries around the world like China, India, Indonesia and many parts of Asia.
For most countries, especially the developed ones, motorcycling isn’t just a form of transportation but also a type of sport. It can also be a leisure activity for relieving stress that has several lifestyles and subcultures. Despite the fact that motorcycling is primarily an activity for one person, it can also be a social one since motorcyclists have the tendency to create a community and share their experience with the others. This is why motorcycle clubs are created specifically for the motorcycling enthusiasts.
For the past several years, the popularity of motorcycling, whether for transportation, for sports or for leisure, has grown really fast. In fact, in 2006 alone, there are 1.1 million motorcycles sold, according to Motorcycle Industry Council. With the growing numbers of motorcycle owners, the numbers of injuries and fatalities related to it also increase, and most of it, the motorcycle riders are the victims.
