A motorcycle is a 2 wheeled cycle powered by a small displacement (in relation to a car) 2 or 4 stroke motor. They come in many varieties, such as:
The sport bike is the light weight, high powered 250-1100cc motorcycle. They're very good for going very fast, extemely nimble and using little gasoline. They can be fitted to carry a small load, and in many cases can be found in any area. Such instances are The Honda CBR600RR, Suzuki GSX-R600 and Triumph Daytona 675.
A touring motorcycle is a type of motorcycle designed for long-distance touring and heavy commuting. Although any motorcycle can be used to tour with, manufacturers have brought specific models designed to address the particular needs of these riders. Common to the touring motorcycle models is usually large cover fairings and windshields (to offer a high degree of weather and wind protection), large capacity fuel tanks (for long ranges between fill-ups), engines offering lots of low-end horsepower, and a more relaxed, more upright seating position than sport bikes. These bikes are highly recommended in an EOTW situation.
These motorcycles mimic the style of American machines from the 1930s to the early 1960s, such as those made by Harley-Davidson, Indian, and Excelsior-Henderson, even though they have benefited from advances in metallurgy and design. The riding position always places the feet forward. Usually the hands are up and the spine erect or leaning back slightly, which some riders find to be more comfortable for long-distance riding. This position allows greater long-distance comfort, with some compromise of control. Chopper-style motorcycles would be categorized as a type of cruiser.
A dirtbike comes in two variants, two stroke and four stroke. a four stroke would be more ideal, due to it's reliabily. The 2-stroke motor is often simpler, but requires oil in the fuel to operate and very specific states of tume.. Enduro motorcycles are road-legal versions of a motocross machine, featuring high ground clearance and copious suspension with minimal person comforts. They are highly unsuitable for long distance road travel. They offer several features that differentiate them from their motocross versions such as silencers, flywheel weights, and the presence of features necessary for highway use such as turn signals, mirrors, and headlights.These are also highly recommend for an EOTW scenario.
