Motorcycles offer an alternative to automobiles when comparing the cost to a car. They are often cost-effective when compared to a car due to needing less fuel and less maintenance. Motorcycles are easier to navigate around a city, as the buildup of cars can make streets compact and unmanageable. Also, motorcycles have to be maintained closer than cars so drivers of motorcycles must always be looking at what is in front of them as well as around them.
Motorcycles are fairly smaller than a car, which gives them the ability to park in smaller spaces and use fewer resources. This smaller frame does make it harder for larger cars and trucks to see motorcyclists while on the road.
