950 riding 450x337 I *knew* it.

Riding motorcycles make you smarter according to the inventor of Brain Age. His study found that riders had better mental acuity than non-riders.

Because riding a motorcycle requires a high level of alertness and
rapid problem solving, Kawashima found, “the driver’s brain gets
activated by riding motorbikes.”

The real gist of this piece confirms that there is such a thing as brain atrophy. If you aren’t challenging yourself -and your brain- you’re slowly degenerating. So even if bikes aren’t your thing, finding something challenging for your body and mind has a good deal of fringe benefits. What this piece doesn’t explain is why I do so many stupid things while riding.
