  • Riding is Cheaper Than Therapy

    Bikers have been saying it since the 1st motorcycle was ever ridden, and now a new UCLA study financed by Harley-Davidson® proves it: "Riding a Motorcycle Improved Metrics of Focus and Decreased Stress Biomarkers". The study found that there’s a vitality and heightened sensory experience that comes from the freedom of riding.

    The neurobiological study published on January 17, 2019, was conducted by a team of researchers from UCLA’s Semel Institute for Neuroscience and Human Behavior. The team recorded participants' brain activity and hormone levels before, during, and after riding, driving a car and while resting. The results provide scientific evidence revealing the potential mental and physical benefits of riding motorcycles.

    While riding, participants experienced increased "sensory focus and resilience to distraction". The study also found an increase in adrenaline and heart rate which if often associated with light exercise and a decrease in cortisol metrics. Cortisol is a steroid hormone which is often linked to our body's stress response.

    “Stress levels, especially among young adults, continue to rise, and people are exploring pathways to better their mental and physical health. Until recently, the technology to rigorously measure the impact of activities like motorcycling on the brain didn’t exist,” said Dr. Don Vaughn, the neuroscientist who led the research team. “The brain is an amazingly complex organ and it’s fascinating to rigorously investigate the physical and mental effects riders report.”

    Study Highlights:

    ● Riding a motorcycle decreased hormonal stress biomarkers by nearly 30% (28%)

    ● Riding a motorcycle for 20 minutes, on average, increased participants’ heart rates by 11 percent and adrenaline levels by 27 percent which is similar to doing light exercise

    ● Sensory focus was enhanced while riding a motorcycle versus driving a car, an effect also observed in those who meditate.

    ● Participants’ brain activity while riding a motorcycle indicated an increase in alertness similar to drinking a cup of coffee

    According to Dr Vaughn, “The differences in participants’ neurological and physiological responses between riding and other measured activities were quite pronounced. This could be significant for mitigating everyday stresses.”

    The Motor Company hopes to use this study to grow ridership, especially among the next generation. But the study should also be of interest to older riders, and those who ride less due to mobility and motorcycle control issues. These riders should seek out solutions such as a lowered or more comfortable seat, adjustable air suspension, and today's advanced motorcycle technology so they can continue to ride and enjoy these benefits. Many popular accessories may help more riders, and their passengers, to improve comfort for longer rides and to better control of their bike while stopped so they can still feel the thrill of the road and the relaxation associated with riding.

  • Guide to Riding V-Twins for the Inseam Impaired

    Do you long to hit the road on a big V-Twin Harley-Davidson®, but think the bike may be a bit big for you? At over 800 pounds, large tourers and cruisers can be intimidating for anyone, much less somebody who is smaller in stature or mobility impaired. But does that mean you need to forget about your dream bike? In a word – no.

    Motorcycles are designed for an average rider weighing in at about 179 pounds and standing just under six feet tall. Statistically, for this rider to be considered the average, we know there must be many people who are both larger and smaller who enjoy riding. Plus, as riders age they shrink – Men can lose an inch between age 30 and 70 and women can lose two inches. Despite this mathematical reality, manufacturers often miss the mark when it comes to the fine balance between affordability and inclusivity; providing ride quality and proper seat height for the broad size range of riders has historically proven to be a challenge in motorcycle design.

    Whether you’re an older, smaller, or mobility-impaired rider doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy the thrill of riding big V-Twin touring bikes or cruisers with confidence - especially while stopped or parking. While there are multiple ways you can lower your seat such as lowering links, shorter shocks, shaved seats and thicker boots souls, most include both advantages and challenges regarding safety, handling, comfort and ride quality. Choosing the right bike, utilizing the appropriate clothing and bike accessories, and upgrading to air suspension can all bring your ride experience to the next level. Continue reading
