One of America’s most loved hobbies is riding a motorcycle. They have enjoyed increasing popularity since the early 1900s. While some prefer the relaxed American style of the classic American motorcycle, others prefer the speed and precision of Japanese engineering. It doesn’t matter what kind of motorcycle you ride, it is not always easy. Motorcyclists who have little or no protection are at risk every time they take to the roads.
