Proposed Bill Could Close Texas Helmet Loophole

By King Law Firm on November 25, 2019

The Benefits to Owning a Motorcycle in Austin

By King Law Firm on May 15, 2013

Texas Motorcyclist BenefitsIf you have always wondered why so many motorcycles are on Austin’s roadways, stop to realize the benefits of motorcycle ownership — especially in today’s world as opposed to your father’s generation.  Your father likely paid less than $2.00 for a gallon of gas and around $10,000 for a new automobile.

Times have changed.

The King Law Firm and Austin attorney Ray King, “The Motorcycle Attorney,” wants you to take the time to consider the following benefits of owning a motorcycle.  If you ride already, you know many of these pertain to the wallet, but a few you may never have considered:

  • Motorcycles are more affordable.  Motorcycles, on average, are less than half the cost of a new car or truck.
  • Motorcycles have better fuel efficiency.  Many get double the miles per gallon of trucks and SUVs.
  • If you have a safe driving record, the cost of motorcycle insurance is much less than car insurance.  The average cost is around $200 per year as opposed to the average cost for car insurance — more than $1,000 per year.
  • Tolls are cheaper on a motorcycle.
  • Locating a place to park is easier.
  • Maintaining a motorcycle is less daunting than maintaining a car.  You may want to do some of the maintenance yourself.
  • Motorcyclists experience increased awareness on the highway.  Falling asleep is virtually impossible with the wind in your face.
  • Motorcycles are far friendlier to the environment.  They create less carbon emissions.

Finally, something every motorcyclist knows, riding a bike is simply fun.  Snuggle on your bike with your loved one, enjoy the natural scenery, join in group rides/activities, etc.

Austin motorcycle accident attorney Ray King’s entire legal practice is dedicated to protecting the rights of motorcyclists.  If you have been hurt in a motorcycle accident, or if someone you love has lost his or her life due to the carelessness/negligence of another, contact the King Law Firm today.  Call (512) 375-4455 for a free case evaluation.
