Does riding a motorcycle count as exercise?
Normally, riding a motorcycle is considered a form of exercise. It is low-impact but you can burn around 600 calories an hour. Riding a motorcycle is just like riding a bike in the way you steer and move the vehicle at slow speeds. This makes the activity great for your core and abdominal strength.
Does height matter when riding a motorcycle?
Being only five feet tall does not prevent you from safely and comfortably riding a motorcycle. But you have to take several things into consideration when choosing a bike that is appropriate for you. My wife, for example, is barely 5′ 2″, and she owns and rides this bike.
Does riding a motorcycle get boring?
It’s not unusual to get bored of something that you do a lot. I get bored with riding quite a lot and can go 2-3 weeks without riding. I think I’ve done close to 60K km over the last 6-7 years, but I always enjoy it again after a short break. I also find that getting a new bike helps a lot.
Why do bikers hang a ropes on their handlebars?
Mostly a biker tradition, the 3-4 foot braided cord you see hanging from the ends of handlebars on some bikes is called a “get-back whip” or a “dog whip,” and is a tradition going back to the motorcycle gangs of the 1970s who used them ostensibly as a way to keep aggressive dogs at bay while riding at low speeds.

Can I ride a motorcycle if I’m short?
No, not too short to ride, you’ll just need to find what is comfortable/safe for you.
