Facts about motorcycles

What I have learned from researching is that motorcycles are huge in the United States and across the world. Last year alone four million motorcycles were in use in the United States. Whether relied upon as a primary means of transportation, used to provide weekend recreation, souped up and sped along for racing, or displayed as antique, millions of people across the world have shown that the novelty most definitely has not worn off. There is no doubt that motorcycles are still popular. They are so liked because they get great gas mileage and with gas prices going up they are saving lots of money on gas. Also they are super compact and small so they can be used in busy city like New York or Japan where the roads are small and full of people.

Why I choose to do this project

I choose to do this project because once i get older i want to have my own motorcycles and know how to work on it by myself. Maybe even one day build my own motorcycle. I would also like to learn how to work on them the proper way and learning all the different styles of the motorcycle world. With leaning how to work on the different types of motorcycles i can help my friends with working on there bikes which some of my friends already have. My partner Jack has a motorcycle so we both want to learn how to work on his motorcycle.
