    Bike riding helps you keep young

    Tokyo: Riding motorcycles helps keep drivers young by invigorating their brains, the scientist behind popular “Brain Training” computer software said on Wednesday, citing a new scientific study.
    “The drivi’s brain gets activated by riding motorbikes” in part because it requires heightened alertness, said Ryuta Kawashima, after his team from Tohoku University and Yamaha Motor conducted a string of tests involving middle-aged men.

    “In a convenient and easy environment, the human mind and body get used to setting the hurdle low,” he warned. Our final conclusion is that riding motorcycles can lead to smart aging.”

    In one, which required the men to remember a set of numbers in reverse order, riders’ scores jumped by more than 50% in two months, while the non-riders’ marks deteriorated slightly. The riders also said they made fewer mistakes. AFP

You dont have to contantly check , monitor your enviroments coz you know you are not going to fall off. But in bike, somewhere in our conscious mind we do keep a check of our surroundings, the road ahead so as to avoid a fall.

                  Alright finally it is out in the open. Nothing better to clear your head of the cobwebs than an early morning ride to the hills. Yes, IMHO riding in traffic certainly keeps one alert, especially in our urban maelstrom. Biking also keeps one in physical shape, especially long distance touring.

                    Had plenty of discussions on this very topic with my dad ages ago. Im happy that this benefit of riding bikes has been scietifically proven.

                    Bring on the Yammies', Hondas', Triumphs' and Kawas' then !

                      I think it's a myth. WTH? I mean, if this was true then all the RE & Pulsar riders would have been impotent by now...

                      We have "1 lac+ kms on Pulsar/ RE" riders and they can reproduce! Even I can, I think...
