TWO-WHEELERS THERE IS NO ALTERNATIVE FOR ALL FREEDOM-LOVING MOTOR FANS
Motorcycles are, by their definition, single-track (although they may also have a sidecar), two-wheeled vehicles, which are characterized by a lower power-to-weight ratio than a car. The engine power needs to accelerate less mass and the vehicle has a lower rolling resistance. You could now continue, by distinguishing between motorcycles, scooters and bicycles with an auxiliary engine. But this does not even touch the incredible feeling of freedom, every motor cycle fan gets riding on his vintage two-wheeler. Along a coastal road, a winding path through wooded territory ... the possibilities to enjoy nostalgic moments are unlimited.
