Motorcycle clubs are about shared experiences, camaraderie, and all the other benefits being part of a group brings. If you are considering joining your local motorcycle club but find yourself on the fence, here are a few perks that might help you make up your mind.
Improve Your Riding Technique
Even if you’ve been riding on your own for years, there are probably areas you can improve on. Joining a motorcycle club is a great way to interact with veteran riders who can give you pointers on riding techniques, bike maintenance, and other tips that will take your riding to the next level.
Club Member Discounts on Insurance
This fact comes as a surprise to a lot of new riders, but members of certain motorcycle clubs can be eligible for reduced insurance premiums based on their membership. Partly based on the education other riders provide and partly because most club members have an experience level that reduces their risk, insurance companies will lower your rates if you become a full member of a certified motorcycle club.
Increase Your Social Circle
Of course, the biggest reason to join a motorcycle club is the community and camaraderie it offers. While motorcycling is in large part about independence and self-reliance, even the Lone Ranger had Tonto. Joining a motorcycle club will introduce you to a lot of people, and there’s a very good chance you’ll forge lasting friendships with them.
