You’ve probably heard a lot more motor scooter horror stories than you have stories about how great they are. There are both physical and mental advantages to riding a motor scooter. A couple are self-explanatory, but there are a few surprising ones too. Here are some reasons behind the great feeling of a weekend ride:
Everyone who has ever taken a lengthy weekend ride can attest to the absolute blissful feeling that you feel as you pull into the driveway. The reason behind this feeling is that as you speed down narrow roads, adrenaline courses through your veins, releasing endorphins. These hormones lift your spirits, making you feel more joyful and reducing any pain. By the time the ride draws to an end, you feel like your burdens have been lifted off your shoulders.
This effect is quite like mindfulness meditation. You are modifying and shifting yourself on a continual basis depending on your body, your speed, the road. You are constantly engrossed as you drive, and you’ll feel completely centered and ready for a new challenge when you step off the motor scooter into a new week.
More Brain Power
A research study carried out by Ryutu Kawashima discovered that the riding of a motorcycle could better your cognitive function by up to 50%. Motor scooters have a similar effect.
This is a result of the focus and problem-solving that it takes to ride a motorcycle or a motorscooter. The brain of the person driving is constantly stimulated, and they are exercising their cognitive function the entire time. Long-term, motor scooter drivers will experience a boost in brain power.
Core and Neck Strength
New riders often complain of neck pain. This is unsurprising - wearing a heavy helmet for long periods of time is tiring enough. Imagine what wind could do. This discomfort strengthens your neck in the long run.Those who ride motor scooters with no windshield are particularly up for a good neck workout.
Ensure that your vehicle, the handlebars, seat, and foot pegs are suited to your size, as having to continually strain your neck will result in a world of pain later on.
Many muscles of your body will be working in unison to keep you upright while riding a bicycle, but nothing works harder than your core. Every movement requires you to use your car, particularly when you are moving slowly. The exercise is low-impact and you may not not even notice it, but you will see an increase in core strength after some time riding.
