The Convenience of Motorbike During Lockdown

Hubby got his motorbike 14 years ago as the company’s payment for his unpaid vacation leaves. At first, I was hesitant to have that motorbike at home because I don’t want hubby to drive it to work. He passes Commonwealth Avenue every day. And you know that Commonwealth Avenue is accident-prone, especially for motorbike riders traversing the stretch.

For a while, I let hubby drive the vehicle. But on his own, he decided not to bring the motorbike because he thought it’s more convenient to ride a bus or take a UV express taxi. Imagine he can sleep or relax while traveling. We use our motorbike to the market and run errands.

Hubby opted to drive the motorbike to the pickup point where the company service car waits for him and his co-workers. By doing that three times a week, hubby can save his tricycle fare.

Hubby follows the same work routine since he is working from home the rest of the week anyway.

Our more than a decade-old motorbike has been a great help to our family. Since its procurement, it doesn’t cause major headaches. It only requires regular maintenance such as change oil, battery replacement, and flat tire using motorcycle lifts. Hubby doesn’t need to search for Best Buy Auto Equipment because the genuine parts of the motorcycle are still in good condition.
