Times have changed over the years, even for motorcycle riders. Bikers were known to be beer-drinking, fat, tattooed, stinking bar brawlers, and that was just the women. Nowadays bikers are more respected, we usually eat more healthy and more important, we exercise. When you go and ride a motorcycle, it's always a good idea to do some stretching, since if you suddenly need to jerk your muscles to keep your motorcycle from falling, your muscles are going to suffer. You may prevent that highside, or stop your bike from falling on the ground, but your muscles will remember the manoeuvre for a long time.

One way to make sure your body (and mind) is set perfectly to riding a motorcycle is to do yoga. You'll be surprised to see how many bikers actually practise yoga in some form or another. I know plenty of male & female bikers who do yoga everyday.

Doing yoga not only sets your mind into a peaceful state, but your body becomes stronger to handle long rides, your riding posture improves and with a more relaxed mind, you can focus better on traffic.

It's probably why there's a web site, YogaMotorSport Open YogaMotorSport link in a new window, that deals with motorcycle riding and yoga. It's a membership site (so you need to become a member), though the first lesson is available for you to check out in their homepage. Check it out to see if it's something for you.

From the blurb on their homepage, it looks like they are also planning to releasing a yoga DVD for bikers. This means when you are travelling, you can take the DVD with you and do your exercises on the road.

And no, the above photo is not what they teach you, doing yoga while riding. That was a screensnap of a Guinness World Book of Records attempt video of the most number of yoga positions on a motorcycle. See the video below:
