With year-round beautiful weather, stretches of scenic highway along the beach and lagoon system, and Florida’s motorcycle-friendly laws, it’s obvious why Melbourne, Brevard, and the greater Central Florida area is a haven for motorcycle owners and bike enthusiasts.
For many people, they were drawn to motorcycles because of the inherit freedom of experiencing the open air, the sensation of wind in the hair, and the romanticism of feeling more connected with the road. While it’s hard to argue that driving a motorcycle isn’t more fun, it is undeniably less safe than the four-wheel alternative. The statistics from the State of Florida are quite clear: only 7% of motorists in the Sunshine State drive motorcycles, yet 19% of all fatal accidents in Florida involve a motorcycle. Florida, in fact, routinely leads the nation in annual motorcycle accident fatalities.
