What does it take to ride a motorcycle without a sense of humor? I have been wondering that for some time and have read some great things written about the subject, but no one seems to have answers that are straight from the horse's mouth. Here's a little bit about motorcycle cool math for you.
Motorcycle cool math has its roots in the fact that the average motorcycle driver is not trained to think in terms of fractions, percentages, and decimals. In fact, most motorcyclists have no experience at all with the basic concepts of these subjects. The average motorcycle rider is not even very good at recognizing what is going on in front of them. They have the sense that the motorcycle is moving in a certain way but often fail to realize that their eyes are closed and they cannot see the road and everything else around them, until it happens right before their eyes are wide open.
If you ride a motorcycle, chances are that you know a few people who do not ride motorcycles. Many of these people who don't ride motorcycles will be able to tell you about how much trouble they have with the bike and about how much fun they have with it. But most of them just know about the fun and don't really give you much information about how the bike feels while you ride it or how it would feel if you were riding it, so I'm sure you can tell that the knowledge is not being passed on to you.
In many ways, motorcycles are very similar to cars. It only takes a slight mistake to end the trip. You can find some very funny ways to make the motorcycle ride more enjoyable if only you could learn how to do so.
Motorcycle cool math is much the same as car cool math. Many times you will find that a motorcycle is way easier to drive than a car.
So there you have some cool math that you can use while riding your motorcycle. If you have never taken the time to learn this stuff before, I hope you find it useful as well.
Remember, a lot of the fun of riding a motorcycle is in the learning process. You will make more friends when you are out on the road and you may even feel better about yourself because you understand how much trouble your bike can handle.
I am no expert on motorcycle cool math, but it is certainly something that I am very interested in. If you have some good ideas for me, please pass them along.
